Best Beers of October

Toppling Goliath Double Dry Hop Pseudo Sue – This DDH version of Pseudo Sue isn’t necessarily better than the fantastic original, but it’s noticeably different. I found it to be fuller bodied with a bit more complexity to the hop flavors. It seems to be a little less crisp and clean than the original. Both are excellent brews!

New Glory Do You Even Mosaic Broh? – This single hop IPA is a fantastic mosaic showcase. I get loads of mango from the aroma and flavor.

Sierra Nevada Estate Homegrown IPA – Tastes like Chico! Estate Homegrown IPA is one of the only estate ales in the world. I’ve found that it varies year to year much more than any of Sierra Nevada’s other offerings. This year’s is one of their best ever. The citrusy, spicy hops blend perfectly with the mild sweetness of the malts.

Shared Saison Nouveau – Saison Nouveau is tart, rich, citrusy, and delightful.

Woodland Empire Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheeple? – Did you know some of the juciest IPAs are coming out of Boise, Idaho? Yep, do yourself a favor and track down one these NEIPA from the potato state.

Tahoe Mountain Evolution of the Barrel – I’ve mentioned that Tahoe Mountain is the hidden gem of Northern California, and this beer is another great example of their sour beer prowess.

Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero – Honestly, I’ve never understood the fuss about Clown Shoes. Their IPAs seem pretty mediocre to me. I’m beginning to understand after drinking this incredible stout!

Fieldwork Petit Verdot Grand Gose – This bold Gose is brewed with its namesake grapes which are typically used in French wines. A beautifully tart blend of red wine and berry flavors with just a hint of saltiness.
