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.
