Let me start by saying that I love coconut. Loooooove it! In and on everything. Coconut on my ice cream. Coconut in my milk. Coconut chicken. Coconut shampoo. I even cook with coconut oil! That being said, you can imagine how excited I was when big boss man Mr. Wise Guy approached me and said, "Hey kid, write up a story on that good coconut brown ale from Burn 'Em and have it on my desk by 5 o'clock!"

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, September marks the transition from summer to winter. For beer lovers, it signals the arrival of Oktoberfest. Yes, the time has once again come to partake in the 206-year-old tradition of imbibing on the finest spicy and malt-forward brews the world has to offer. In this installment of the Wise Guys Beer Review, I'll explore four Oktoberfest-style brews YOU should be drinking in 2016. Are you ready? Let's get to it!

Short's Brewing Company
American India Pale Ale
6.5% ABV

I often say that everyone has a different palate and you should rightfully keep that in mind when reading this blog. What I deem a disappointment may very well emerge as your next favorite. The simple fact is that you have to try everything for yourself and let your own senses be the barometer for your future purchases. Cool? Cool!

Grapefruit Sculpin
Ballast Point Brewing Co.
India Pale Ale with grapefruit
7% ABV

Look folks, like it or not, there's a new kid on the beer block and they're about to change the way you think about the age-old elixir we have all come to crave. Last week, region beer geeks, myself included, happily welcomed the arrival of San Diego's award winning Ballast Point Brewing Company to Indiana. (Finally, I know.) Consequently, I have dedicated this installment of the Wise Guys Beer Blog to their famously popular year-round release Grapefruit Sculpin IPA.
