In our continuing series of trying to drink beers from every state, commonwealth, district of Columbia and Puerto Rico in the United States, we visit the great state of Colorado. A layup considering how synonymous Colorado is with craft beer, but it's timely and we have our friend and Episode 9 guest Kelsey back to talk about her recent trip out west. We learn some CO history and see the return of the our own Japanese batsu quiz involving a malt liquor punishment.

This week Sam has returned with taies from far away lands and local pubs. We try some pepper beers looking to spice up our life, learn about some even hotter beers, talk about Hot Ones & Pepper X, and marvel in horror as the whole show derails at the end because Sam didn't eat dinner which makes him silly and restless.

Flying Dog Chocolate Habanero Stout
Weyerbacher Sunday Mole Stout
This week we celebrate the magical time in a beer drinker's life when they get to tap into their German side and enjoy the wonderful fall Oktoberfest beers. Sam's on vacation, so Adam and Steve go over their big beer drinking weekends, talk about the upcoming festivities, get into the history of the event, and play a fun game centered on Oktoberfest cuisine which was in no way designed to drive Adam nuts.
Market Garden Brewery Old Zahm
This week marks the start of the football regular season, so we're drafting beers to be our starters for serving our friends on NFL Gameday. We talk about the shift in stadium culture from just serving the big macros to dedication to craft choices, and we also draft full fantasy beer teams.
