    Not to brag or anything but I did 2 volunteer shifts this past wekend at the Great American Beer Festical in Denver. There were over 2400 beers from 466 breweries. I was a beer pourer in the mid-west section. I believe I got to sample just over 140 differnt beers over the 2 nights.

    I hate to say that nothing stood out and made me go WOW!! Guess I'm jaded living in Boulder and having 9 breweries and or brewpubs within walking and or cycling distance. And so many more throughout the state. But I did like a bunch of the Michigan breweries including Bells, and Arcadia. Wish I had had more time to take notes.

  • So it appears the supply of Pumpkinhead is running out quickly. I went to 3 places today and all I could find were 2 twelve-packs. If you enjoy Shipyard Pumpkinhead and you are within their distribution range, grab what's left. They never make enough of that stuff every year.

    Oh yeah. It's amazing 81. Served in a 22oz glass rimmed with cinnamon is a delight. I had never seen it served like that until a wedding we went to a few weeks ago. If you can find it, get it. My buddy just called me earlier and said there's none left at places west of boston.

    edit: It's brewed in Portland ME, but it might be distributed to Chicago.

    Really? I'm suprised at that. I have been drinking pumpkin all fall. Took me a while to get into it but I love it now. I didn't like it at all at first a couple years ago.

    I honestly think pumpkin beers aren't that great. I like pumpkin a lot, I truly do... but I'm also a believer that just because it's fall and pumpkin is good doesn't mean that everything has to be pumpkin. It gets out of hand sometimes.

  • I've been hooked on http://www.beeradvocate.com

    I love looking for new brews to try.

    To paraphrase Jimmy Fallon "Thank you craft beer industry for making my alcoholism seem like a cool hobby"

    edit: I'm nursing the last of my Pumpkinhead 12 pack. I'm gonna miss you Pumpkinhead.

    if i had a twelve pack of them in the fridge, i would be taking 11.5 of them back for a refund.

    i like ratebeer.com, but i normally just go to binnys and wander around for a bit looking to see what catchs my eye.
