Seasonal Beers

So far this season I have had an Oktoberfest Rauchbier (Smoked Marzen) from Germany, a Pumpkin Ale from Southampton, a spicy "Festive" ale from Upstate New York make with nutmeg, ornange rind and Saigon cinnamon, thats in additon to hops, barley and yeast, and a Chocolate Stout from Oregon. Man do I love the change from summer to fall! I'm going to the Great World Beer Festival this weekend to see what else they have available. Its at the Javits Center. I wonder if I can make an ice cream float using the Rogue Chocolate Stout I had. Anyone ever try that?

  1. If you refer to Schlenkerla Rauchmärzen, I believe that's sold year-round in the US.

    1. Yeah actually that has to be one of the best floats I ever had....Vanilla ice cream and chocolate beer/ale, all I can say is Amazing!!!
