The summer months are well behind us, which means that seasonal beers will soon fill our bellies with holiday satisfaction. Ahh, yes. Very soon, gravy boats will whisk us away to the land of mashed potatoes, stuffing and turkey. No eggnog for me, grandma. I’ll have another milk stout with an extra side of turkey. Hold the yams.
To ring in the holidays, Lawrence Beer Co., 826 Pennsylvania St., will be hosting a brewery tour and tasting Oct. 27.
The Walnut River Brewing Co. in El Dorado, Kansas, is offering up Warbeard, a flavor-packed, malty Irish Red (5.5% ABV, 24 IBU) with hints of dark chocolate and walnuts.
West Bottoms stalwart Stockyards Brewing Co.’s Stocktoberfest is a golden yellow German Marzen (5.6% ABV, 26 IBU) with a medium body and notes of syrup and honey. A solid choice for your Oktoberfest extravaganza.
