    My favorite time of the year, when you can sit outside without sweating, and wondering “am I screwing up my acoustic playing in this heat?”. Love the true Bavarian Octoberfest Biers as well, having one of my faves, Paulaner today on the patio, at 71 deg here in southern Indiana, doesn’t get much better than this. Please share your favorite Octoberfest Biers as well! PROST! DBA9FE86-FFEB-410B-A5D4-C6F13235F7CB.jpeg

    OK, we’ll add a Bristol night race on the patio to seal the deal. Good times. BB0877B0-D0DA-43C9-B0E5-73B5DB8F701D.jpeg

    Where in Southern Indiana are you? Anything south of US 24 is southern Indiana. Considering that German is the most common nationality in the Hoosier state, your Paulaner makes sense. Still, I prefer a nice English Bass ale, Canadian LaBatt's , or Polish Zywiec. Na Zdrowie!

    I’m as far southwest as you can get, Evansville. Huge German influx in our area. My travels to Austria and German states have spoiled me for really good true Bavarian brews, Paulaner is one of the best offered in our area. Have had the true at Haufbrauhouse in Munich, it still offers as well as we can find here.

    As an Aussie I can say that any reason to have a tall cold beer is a good one!:cool:

    Long and short of it, I prefer Bavarian brews over English any day. It’s a taste thing, surely, but I find English beers lacking in body and taste.

    Want body and taste? Get a Guinness!

    I no longer drink beer, have to spare my stomach, but I make exceptions from time to time for a Guinness. On tap, of course.

    I'm from the opposite end of the state---South Bend. The NW corner of the state has a huge Polish population.

    On tap is the only way I’ll have a Guinness:). The taste just isn’t captured packaged.

    Been up your way a few times, brother lived out in the boonies in Roanoke (Fort Wayne) for quite a few years, nice out that way.

    Best thing about Fort Wayne is Sweetwater! I lived 15 miles from Lake Michigan in the heart of serious snow country. What you get in inches, we get in feet. Now, I'm in Lafayette---Purdue land!
