Shiner Oktoberfest

That time of year is finally here. Getting a little cool in the evenings. Definatley smoking weather. My favorite beer is out on store shelves. Been drinking a few Shiner Oktoberfests lately and really enjoying them.

How do you like this compared to Sam Adams Octoberfest? My local Grocery store at home carries Shiner so I might have to pick this up.

I've not tried SA. Really been meaning too. I'm also into Hoegaarden. Luckily it is available all year. As far as Shiner, the only one I don't like is Heffenweizen. If you get the chance, look for Shiner Bohemian Black Lager. Great beer!

It would be bad if you drank Cuervo Especial and Natural Light.

Damn, I can't get Shiner beers up here in NE. Love them though (you can take the boy out of TX, but you can't take the TX out of the boy).

Shiner Bohemian Black Lager is my favorite. Hard to beat an ice cold one on a hot Texas afternoon.

Never heard of it on the east coast, but we have a beer out of MD or DEL called "Raging Bitch" and it is strong in flavor and effect. ONly available late spring to early summer.
