I’ll admit that fest beers aren't my favorites, but I’ll be the first to admit I love this time of year in the beer calendar. The beers are getting darker, the festivals are in full swing and my favorite beers (winter & holiday ales) are almost ready. Today’s beer of the week fits right into the fest theme…Victory Fest. Fest is Victory’s current seasonal and a tasty little Marzen-style beverage. I’m excited also to hear that on Rock 107’s thirsty Thursday show they actually gave away a case of Victory Fest.
The real excitement of the show today was of course the guys showing love for our local breweries, Breaker Brewing & Lion and also for One Guy Brewing and Guy’s Oktoberfest. For those that missed the details, One Guy Brewing Oktoberfest is going on right now! Opening night was last night and the festival runs 10/8 to 10/11 and 10/15 to 10/18. Check out the oneguybrewing.com page for details on the beers and food. As proof I offer up a photo from opening night showing Chris & Mark from Breaker Brewing with Guy and Tom from One Guy Brewing. Note the gravity fed keg of One Guy Oktoberfest and make note that we’ll be heading down to 1G Oktoberfest on Sat afternoon (10/10). Cheers guys…great show and hope to see you @ One Guy Oktoberfest.
