Obviously, it's Oktoberfest season. My favorite beer season of them all. And I got to thinking, as much as I love this season, and this style, I'm very glad it's only seasonal. It gives me something to look forward to, and by the time August hits (it can be later for some of you), I am more than ready to spend the next couple months pounding as many beers of this style as I can. That being said, if it was available year round (if all of them were, I realize there's a couple imports that are), I don't think I'd drink them too often. And I LOVE this style of beer. And then the wheels in my head started turning (this can be a dangerous thing), and I thought, "What if New England IPAs were seasonal, just like Oktoberfests?" I like both styles, although I like Oktoberfests much more. But I would love it if New England IPAs were only available for a few months. They'd be fresher, and they wouldn't clog the shelves all year round. I'd get to drink my fill of them for a couple of months, and then get to take a break and move on. I know many breweries release certain IPAs on a rotation already, but to see ALL New England IPAs be a seasonal release would be something entirely different. Thoughts?
