We love our beer, and fall is another great beer season. We spent last Sunday at a neighborhood Oktoberfest that included a home brew competition in which Andrew entered his Belgian IPA. However, many a Sunday, we find ourselves at Max's Taphouse in Fells Point while watching football. We stumbled upon Max's when we first moved to Baltimore and continue to go back because of their insanely large and unique beer selection. Think 140 rotating draft selections and hundreds of different types of bottled beer. Yup, that'll be enough beer to make your head spin-- literally. With that said, here is a look at a few fall beers that I've been enjoying so far this season.
1 // Mahr's Brau's Mastodon - German Lager, 2 // Nebraska Brewing Company's Wick for Brains - Pumpking Ale, 3 // Flying Fish's Oktoberfish - Marzen/Oktoberfest, 4 // Sierra Nevada's Flipside - Red IPA, 5 // Schlafly's Pumpkin Ale
While I'm usually more of a fan of IPAs and beers that you more commonly find in the summer months, I've happily found a few that I've found satisfying. The Mastodon was probably my favorite as a quality spot on German lager, and the Flipside provides the fall flavors of an amber yet is hoppy enough to do the trick for an IPA girl like me.
Are you a craft beer fanatic? What sorts of craft beers do you enjoy during the fall season?
