So, just where did Pabst get that Blue Ribbon?

In other beer news, this year's Deschutes Hop Henge is out. Yum, and at $4.59 for a bomber of 10.6% ABV hoppy goodness, it's a winner best shared on any given weeknight.
PBR also won gold at this year's GABF in the American Style Lager category, but considering Keystone Light got the bronze the competition wasn't exactly stellar.
And, as you say, it's a good time of year to be an aficionado of just about any beer style. The hop heads get fresh hop beers, plus Maharaja came back a couple weeks ago and Lagunitas Sucks, which I've heard some great things about, is just hitting stores now. Crooked Stave is rocking the wilds/sours, the big stouts and barleywines are all out to play, and every store and respectable taproom is filled with barrel aged goodness. Happy new year indeed!
