    In the US, the unofficial end of summer is here. Those of us still wishing for that endless summer are comforted by the excitement of the upcoming beer release season and the plethora of related fall festivals. Whatever your seasonal preference, this weekend's celebration calls for beer. What will you be drinking this Labor Day?

    Knee Deep Hop Shortage. Why not end the summer with a hop explosion? As fall begins, I'll switch over to seasonals, then Imperial Stouts thoughout the winter. I love the change of seasons....

    Me too, but, when I get home I'll be drinking some fine suds. Maybe some Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, or Three Floyds. Try to at least have one!

    Got a sixer if Ipswich Hop Harvest, a sixer of Newburyport Greenhead Ipa, and a sixer of Jack's Copper Legend. Also, planing on a side-by-side of Trillium Congress Street and Dry Hopped Congress Street for special few. All local, all the time.

    No particular beer, just every beer I can get a hold of during my trip to Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, and Denver.

    That's a lot of beer!!! You are picking three of the best beer cities in the state to be sure (I live in CO Springs so I may be biased...)

    Mars and double cream stout should go good with porterhouse steaks smothered in grilled onions and sauteed mushrooms. Crown royal for dessert

    Whatever I feel like that day. Probably a mix-six like I usually end up with, but no promises.

    It's going to involve some Two Hearted Ale, some Goose Island IPA and maybe an ale to be named. There will, of course, be a piece of pig on the grill.

    Something brewed in state...light but fresh with a ton of flavor...

    Something local (Illinois but only an hour away) & seasonal, again with a ton of flavor...

    And a few bombers of a good double IPA...to share with someone...maybe over a good cigar...

    Unfortunately I am working third shift through Tuesday, so my Labor day will be Tuesday evening with a case of SNPA cans and a sixer or two of something else. And no, I won't be drinking all of it in one sitting, at least I don't believe I will lol.

    In addition to bottles already in the basement, the wife and I stopped at the liquor store to fuel up for the long weekend. We got a case of PBR for her, a mix six for me to go with a six of Dead Guy Ale, a four pk of Narwhal, and a four pk of Dragons Milk. Also picked up a Pumking to try. Cheers. Might have to pick up some "jumbo shrimp" to throw on the barbie.
