Tröegs has some great beer, made in Harrisburg, PA. My two favorites so far Troegenator® Double Bock and Tröegs DreamWeaver® Wheat. The Troegenator is 8.2% alcohol so be careful!

Yuengling Bock is good too.

I had Shipyard Chamberlain Ale and it was very good. I want to try their Pumpkinhead.

I had pumpkin beer last year for the first time one was excellent and the other just so so. It is too bad I can’t remember who made what but I’m trying to find that great pumpkin beer again. It tastes like regular beer at first and the pumpkin spicy flavor comes on after you swallow it down.

I like Molson Dry & Export over their "Canadian" beer. Rickard's Red is also good, and of course all of them go excellent with poutine :D .

I was over to my local micro brewer, Weyerbacher, to check out their new wild red ale sour beer Rapture. The owner was offering a taste of a combination of their imperial stout, Old Heathen, mixed 1:1 with their Imperial Pumpkin. I can't say I'm a fan of pumpkin ales but this blend I liked :)

    Called it a Black and Orange :cheers:

Lately I have been drinking "Big Moose Ale" by Saranac Brewing. It is a seasonal American Pale Ale with a nice "crisp" taste.

I just went over to Shipyards Brewery last week and took the tour and taste test! I've always been a big fan of Shipyard Export Ale. I got to say I like em all including some of the old English recipes like Old Thumper. Still though that export ale is my fav.
