Oskar Blues Tasty Weasel tap room

You now can get a 32 ounce can of any of their beers. They fill the half growler then crimp the top. They'll then put a label on it, pretty cool!

Dry Dock Brewing Imperial Pumpkin Ale

This ale has a spicy nose strong on nutmeg. Dry Dock's imperial pumpkin ale is one comes from one of my favorite breweries. It has a spicy front end with a tad sweetness. Doesn't have much pumpkin flavor though.

This pumpkin Porter has a rich dark color with a nice head and sweet aroma. The front end has a rich, toasty malt flavor along with a nice chocolate notes. There's pumpkin there along with the light spices of a chocolate pumpkin pie.
