So this time of year all I’m seeing are top 10 lists. Top ten favorite dog toys, top ten favorite doggy spas, top ten favorite dog names…etc. So of course I consulted with Mom we pulled together a top ten favorite beers list for 2009. Mom wanted to try them all again as I was making this list, I had to guard the fridge so she would be sober enough to help me type this out….

  1. Anything from the Leinenkugel Brewery!!!!!! This house isn’t picky, we like them all and so should you…or I’ll bit you….
  2. Guinness it isn’t just a beer to drink on St. Patrick’s day! Get someone to pour it right or be in awe of the widget in the draft bottles….how cool is the widget?!
  3. Gaelic Ale from Highland Brewing Company
  4. Pumpkinhead Ale from Shipyard Brewing Company
  5. 420 Extra Pale Ale from Sweetwater Brewery
  6. Longboard Island Lager from Kona Brewing Company
  7. Tusker Lager from East Africa Breweries LTD hard to find but brings back oh so many memories!
  8. Lucky Kat from Magic Hat Brewing Company Beer Kitty, Kitty!
  9. Yuengling Lager from Yuengling… their Black and Tan comes in a close second.
  10. Point Amber Classic from Stevens Point Brewery

There are a lot of good beers and Breweries out there. But one should always have a few of their favorites in the fridge for a rainy day….or a snowy day…or a hot day…or well any day that ends in y. Cheers and drink responsibly….

Mom said I could do a top ten list of my favorite dog toys next time…better start gathering and testing them out.

19 September – 4 October 2009 marks the official dates of the 2009 Oktoberfest celebration. Can you believe it is the 176th Oktoberfest?

Oktoberfest in Munich is the largest festival in the world. 16 days of BEER, music, people from all cultures and fun. It is such a popular festival that countries around the world hold their own Oktoberfest celebrations. Alot of different breweries release an Oktoberfest seasonal just in the fall. I of course encourage everyone to try out the Leinenkugel Brewery’s Oktoberfest!


However, check your local brewery for their fall seasonal. Mom goes nuts for the Shipyard Brewing Company’s Pumpkinhead Ale, and has been seen with a Samuel Adams Octoberfest.

Regardless of how you celebrate Oktoberfest, raise a pint of your favorite brew to King Ludwig I of Bavaria who married Princess Therese and just had to throw a big party to celebrate!
