    OK, it's offseason for most of us. I know I tend to get some sampler packs and try some different brews in the winter time when it's not 95 every day and you have to drink a twelver of lite just to stay cool. So, post up the beers you've tried lately, old favorites, etc. along with your review and/or any stories that go with it. Good beer drinking is a God given right. Pics of the pack or bottle or mug would be cool too. So, let's enjoy some beer together (over 21 only).

    Funny - are we related?

    Decided to keep a running tally this year on my phone since I start this around Thanksgiving and sample pretty much any that I come across. Prefer to start with a 22oz when possible. I lean towards the ales - ambers and reds, so my list here is biased that direction....

    This one was a decent to OK double IPA. Pleasant and definitely worth the $4 for a 4 pack deal!

    Fellow beer snobs (what my wife calls me), I already love this thread. I tend to drink local brews so this may be skewed toward Texas beers for me, but I'll try most anything. Recently I've had:

    Karbach Hopadillo - great IPA
    Karbach Yule Shoot Your Eye Out - Christmas Ale, little heavy on the spices for me
    Karbach Mother-In-Lager - dark lager, easy to drink
    Karbach Weekend Warrior - American Pale Ale
    Karbach Pumpkinator - nice pumpkin beer, not too spicy, high ABV
    Karbach Roshambo - double (i think) IPA fermented with Belgian yeast, very good
    Karbach Hopadillo Negro - black double IPA, loved it
    Karbach Rodeo Clown - double IPA, one of my favorites
    Santa Fe Black IPA - I like it, a little low in IBUs
    Harpoon White IPA - easy drinking, not sure what I think
    Sierra Nevada Celebration - fresh hope ale, one of my favorites every year
    Sam Adams Oktoberfest - go to Oktoberfest
    Founders Breakfast Stout - great stout
    Breckinridge Vanilla Porter - probably my favorite porter

    I know there are a few others I've had recently too. I'll consider and post again.

    Like the Founders one and the Breckenridge. Had the very good Left Hand Milk Stout this weekend. Also had the Celebration. mmmmmm. Got a variety pack of different brews from Lakefront Brewery in Wisconsin. None were perfect but every one was darn good. The belgian white was interesting and the pilsner was kind of like a wheat version. Very interesting stuff. Also got the Shipyard sampler pk. Lots of goodies in there too. Try their "Longfellow Winter Ale"-- good stuff.

    I pretty much like all of Left Hands brews, but their Milk Stout is my favorite. Had it on nitro a couple of times and then it is at its best.

    That reminds me I had a couple of brews from Lakewood Brewing in the Dallas area recently too. Their Punkel, a pumpkin spiced dunkel, was prett good. Their Temptress, an imperial Milk Stout, was great. Nice flavor and mouthfeel. Definitely find that one if you are in the Dallas area.
