Saturday Beer Reads

Fall officially began this week.  Happy autumn! I’m trying to embrace the fall season after the memorable and fun summer. I’m mourning the end of fresh tomatoes and peaches, but now we can look forward to apples, pumpkins and of course, seasonal beers like pumpkin, Oktoberfest, and Marzens.

One of my favorite breweries is back in the news. Read about Wesley Case’s visit to Manor Hill Brewing’s farm brewery.

In celebration of fall, read about The Best German Lagers to Drink for This Year;s Oktoberfest.

I try to drink a glass of water for every beer I drink. Well, try 3 glasses for each beer. Business Insider says “We tried the alcohol diet Tom Brady put Rob Gronkowski on, and it was a lot harder than we imagined”.

Liz Murphy of Naptown Pint has started a new podcast and introduced a new brewery, Goonda. Tap into the beer world with this great new pintcast.
