Martin House Queen of the Mist (Red Currant) – Barrel-aged Salty Lady fermented on tart cherries. 6.2% ABV / Fort Worth, TX / Availability: Limited (Limit 1)

Nebraska Wick for BrainsReal pumpkin lends a sweetness and pumpkin flavor not found in many pumpkin ales. Wonderful pumpkin pie spice intertwined in an amber ale creates a pumpkin sensation which is elegantly crafted. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, and allspice blend perfectly in this seasonal ale. 5.4% ABV / Papillion, NE / BeerAdvocate 82 / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Legal Draft Lawktoberfest – Classic Bavarian style Oktoberfest, with a hint of orange in its clear body, a slight toast of malt, and a crisp finish that invites another sip. 5% ABV / Arlington, TX / Availability: Good

BrainDead Brewing Bent de Garde – They used 100% Brett in this one; bright bubblegum sweetness dances with the bold Cabernet’s plum drawn from its months of aging. A slight spice and funk sit well back in the palate, with the overall composition changing with every sip. 8.7% ABV / Dallas, TX / Availability: Decent

903 Oktoberfest – A medium-bodied Märzen Oktoberfest. Light amber in color, it finishes dry and clean. Rich, roasty, and quite delectable. 5% ABV / Sherman, TX / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Sierra Nevada OktoberfestCollaboration with Germany’s Brauhaus Miltenberger, whose approach to the classic style they’ve long admired. The result is a festival beer true to their style: deep golden in color with deceptively rich malt flavor and balanced by traditional German-grown whole-cone hops. 6.1% ABV / Chico, CA / BeerAdvocate 86 / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Great Divide Hoss Hoss is based on the Märzen lagers of Germany. Rich, layered malt notes with hints of cherry and dark fruits dominate, while the unique addition of rye imparts a slightly earthy, spicy character.

Harpoon Flannel Friday – A bright hop aroma from late hop additions plays with its strong malt backbone. Amber hued, medium bodied, with hints of citrus and pine, this ale is made for the crisp days (and nights) of fall. 5.7% ABV / Boston, MA / BeerAdvocate 86 / Availability: Good / SoLa Only

Oskar Blues FugliYuzu and Ugli fruit infusions twisted together with the blueberry, tangerine notes of Mosaic make for a tangy, juicy, zesty array of aroma and flavor. 5.8% ABV / Longmont, CO / BeerAdvocate 85 / Availability: Good

Circle Lady Bird IPA – Lady Bird American IPA is a beer inspired by endless fields of bluebonnets and slow drives through the rolling Texas hill country.
