As seen at Hobby's Deli today.


I guess the guy gave up and didn't have anything clever to put for the reuben sliders.

And wow I just saw those prices, $16 for a cheeseburger? Does this Hobby's place have free weed and strippers at every table too?

If you're going to be in San Diego, I suggest checking out Stone in Escondido. It's about a half hour north on I-15. Do you have an approximate route mapped out for the drive back? Also, I know you aren't a fan of the user ratings/reviews on beeradvocate.com, but that website is a very good source for finding worthy beer locations when traveling.

Yeah we're going through Vegas then Utah on route 70 to Denver, staying in Colorado a couple days, then going on 80 through Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. I know there's a bunch of good breweries in Colorado too.

We plan on going to Ballast, and I looked on the map, Stone is just past Ballast on the way back to Camp Pendleton. So maybe we'll stop at both. Its unbelievable how many breweries there are in that county

List of Best Pumpkin Beers


I am only posting the above list for fun in case anyone wants to try any of these beers or has tried some and would like to comment. We all know these lists are highly subjective.

That being said, I've only had Southern Tier's Pumking and its sibling Warlock -- loved 'em both -- and Weyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin Ale -- didn't like it as much as others obviously do. Full disclosure: It could be that I am not a big fan of pumpkin flavors to begin with so I need sugars added to be able to enjoy these types of beers. But I am still open to trying more.

I would like to try some of the beers on that list. ... And I would like to get my hands on a bottle of Saucony Creek Captain Pumpkin's Maple Mistress, which doesn't seem to be readily available in my area of North Jersey.

Maple Mistress is good, it's on the sweet side though so drinking all 4 beers can be a task. Still a good beer though. Its a unique taste that definitely is worth a try.

I got a case in of Avery Pump(KY)n. I put it up for $13.99 (which at the time was the cheapest on beermenus.com, but some other stores have since seen that and put theirs for $12.99). We sold 11 bottles in 2 days, its unbelievable since this is the first batch that Avery has made. People go nuts for BBA beer. I had a bottle myself, its good, just a hint of pumpkin but mostly the usual oaky, charred, alcohol taste you associate with that style. As far as bourbon barrel aged beer goes Port Older Viscosity is much better.

My new favorite pumpkin for the year though is Twisted Manzanita Witch's Hair. It's a really spicy pumpkin and not so much of the same old boring, sweet, lightly spiced pumpkins that a lot of breweries put out now.

I'm going out to San Diego on Sunday and driving back across the country with my friend who is done with his 4 years in the marines. Does anyone have any suggestions of breweries to stop at or bottles to pick up along the way? I would really like to go to Ballast Point in SD. I'd like to go to Uinta also but Salt Lake City is a little too far out of the way.

I think you mean The Great Pumpkin; Greater Pumpkin is made by Heavy Seas, and probably is not actually greater. The Great Pumpkin rules, pick one up if you find it! I snagged two bottles of it yesterday along with a bottle of Dark o' the Moon and Punkaccino.

We were talking about elysian, obviously you know what I meant. I had it last year, it was definitely good, nothing to put it a step above the rest though. I enjoyed dark o' the moon more honestly. I carried the Hansel & Gretel also, it was atrocious. I guess elysian knew that and replaced it this year with Punkaccino.
