Until now we could choose between Blond and Bruin in our supermarkets.
I'm popping my own post here because a year later, Sierra Nevada has a slight twist with their Oktoberfest 2019 collaboration with Bitburger. Good stuff!This time of year I like to try the "seasonal" Oktoberfest beers. Some of them are the ones I try each October, other are new, but most are pretty good.
I had never heard of White Claw, it sounds like a remedy for an upset stomach. And the $28 per bottle Bourbon Barrel Aged Bananaversary Imperial Stout doesn't sound much better, it sounds like it might taste like Four Loko or a piña colada. (Not there's anything wrong with piña coladas, I actually like some of the more foo-foo umbrella drinks. But don't want my beer to taste all foo-foo.)
Why so sarcastic?As with many unfamiliar things, I would recommend you try a bourbon aged stout before you assign antiquated and disparaging descriptors of reassurance. No need to spend $28. I’m sure there must at least one decent bar near you that would do a small pour for $6 or so. Banana takes the edge off the bourbon and malt. At @12% ABV, I’m sure it would be tuff enough for you.
I drink seltzer when my electrolytes are off, I don’t think “spiked” would help that, so I can’t comment.
