    Tried Founders Dark Penance and Harvest for the first time this year. Thought both were excellent.

    Apparently I'm not the only one to try Founder's Dark Penance and Harvest for the first time this year.

    I'm not sure if it counts as a fall seasonal (if it only comes out in the fall), but Short's Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster is also amazing stuff.

    Founders Harvest and Left Hand Oktoberfest. Actually, the LH Oktoberfest was as good as my favorite...Great Lakes.

    I don't know if this is truly a seasonal. but Alewerks Lover's Greed was phenomenal. One of my favorite beers of the year.

    It's a shame for the rest of the country that Port Brewing doesn't get a wider national distro. High Tide is another awesome fresh hop IPA that always makes me smile when it shows up at my local every year.

    Had Schlafly's Pumpkin Ale for the first time this year and shame on me it took so long! One of the best out there. I made up for lost time when it popped up on tap at a couple places around here :wink:

    Also SN's Tumbler, Vienna Lager and basically the whole Fall Pack. The last time I had Tumbler was at least 5 years ago and I was never very impressed with it. But my taste may have matured, because I THOROUGHLY enjoyed it this year.
