Yay! No kidding. We got our first Octoberfest beer in on August 1st from Great Lakes Brewing in Cleveland. Since then we have gotten Octoberfest beer from Stoudt’s (Pennsylvania), Summit (St. Paul), Left Hand (Colorado), and Weihenstephan “Fest Bier” from Germany (they can’t call it Octoberfest in Germany because the brewery, which is the oldest in the world, is not located in the city of Munich).

Other seasonal beers fresh off the truck include Weyerbacher Autumnfest, Abita Pecan Harvest Ale, Left Hand Rye Bock lager, and Rodenbach Red Bach (it’s Belgian sour beer with cherry juice).

Lest I forget, we have Shipyard Pumpkin, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, and Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin.

Oh yeah, I saved the best for last: Bell’s Batch 8,000. Imagine an imperial version of Bell’s Oberon. It is so gooood! And, SOOOO limited. We could get only 2 cases of it.

Come on down. The beer tastes mighty fine this Octoberfest.
