Oktoberfest is among us





Well its official, the summer is over. Oktoberfest beers are hitting the market and that's a signal that its the beginning of fall. I got an email last week from Norm's in Vienna, VA that said they just received the following Oktoberfest beers: Spaten, Hacker-Pschorr, Paulaner, Lancaster, Hofbrau, and Dominion. Last year my favorite 'fest beer was from Left Hand Brewery. I traded some posts on Beeradvocate with Mike a rep for Left Hand and he said that they are currently shipping their Oktoberfest and that Virginia should be getting some soon. That is great news!

As sad as it is to see summer go, I love the fall weather here in the DC area and thank God its almost football season. Let's Go! Hokies!

Eric,

My Man, this is a great post. Can you do me a favor and let me know when the left hand brewery shipment arrives in area. I am planning on buying my fair share. I dearly miss my left hand and I'm thrilled that they are sending out some special seasonals. Rock on, and keep up the great posts man!

Cheers,
Mark

P.S. Let get together for a few cold ones sometime soon. Perhaps we could meet up at the dogfish head pub in falls church?

Good to hear from you buddy. I'll let you know when the left hand fest hits the shelves in NOVA. Pretty busy lately here at work, but maybe Saturday or Sunday afternoon or evening I could hit up the ale house. Let me know if you'll be around this weekend
