I liken it to being able to buy a 2013 car now. It is like we are living in the future! But facetiousness aside, if you are releasing a pumpkin beer or a harvest ale on August 1, that means you were brewing it in June. Where do you buy pumpkin in June? Surely you aren't getting the freshest pumpkins around... Expired canned pumpkin anyone? If you are releasing a fest beer, at least there aren't any special, seasonal ingredients. But it takes longer to make. When were you brewing that one? May? April? Earlier?
I'll be holding off on the pumpkin beers for a little while. How about you? Are you excited to see all the fall beers out now or do you wish they would wait?
