    Good choice, already gone through 2 Schlafly 6er's this month. Haven't seen my Shipyard yet, but those two are definitely my favorites.

    I tried Red Hook Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter this week, it mostly just tasted like a porter to me.

    Had an O'Fallon too, probably would be my 3rd choice.

    Oktoberfest wise, I tried a Steven's Point, it tasted like a Bud Light Oktoberfest. Haven't seen their pumpkin. I also had Goose Oktoberfest but I'd had a few before so can't judge too much on the taste but it was good. I enjoy anything Leinenkugel's so their's was good. I didn't like Exile's very much, it was pretty bitter. Was that just a bad experience? Had a 6 pack and wasn't a big fan. I also tried a Paulaner, it tasted similar to a Sam Adam's, both really smooth and good. I'd put Leinenkugel and the last two as my favorite's for Oktoberfest.

    I remember last year at this time, I got a 6 pack of Leine's Harvest Patch Shandy. It had to be my mood beer, because that night I loved it. Tried it again a couple times after that hoping for the same pallet and never got the same satisfaction and it just went down hill as it went on.

    Yeah I didn't like their Harvest Patch, too spicy or something for my liking, I'm more of the pumpkin pie tasting type. I tried the Blue Moon version and it was good but I'd had a few before that too so I'd have to give it another try.

    I guess there is a good side to the big boys buying out these breweries. We would have never gotten this in Iowa.

    Was going to add this one too. It's called Boulevard Funky Pumpkin. Tastes like a half sour, half pumpkin beer - it sounds disgusting but if you are into light sours, it's one of the best beers I've had recently. I think its only out through October and can be found at Hy-Vee. Definitely worth a try.

    The Schlafly Pumpkin Ale is also delicious. And it's 8%.
