Thanks for the beer, Larry.  And congrats.  Washington really played well in the 2nd half of the season.

Came within a game in the 1980 but lost the ONE game playoff to LA Dodgers

Yes Gnat.......they should have won the WS in 1994 but MLB had a strike that year... grrr

Montreal Expos Niner.....the team moved to Washington and are now the Nationals.....I still call them the Expos........Blitz coined a good phrase........The Natspos......lol

It would be cool to see Washington vs Baltimore in the WS.......NO TRAVEL Time.

I still refer to the Brewers as The Pilots.

Well, that's what confused me, because the Nationals won the NL East in 2012.

Anyway, Giants win, Dodgers lose and it's down to a 2 game lead for LA, with 3 games head to head at Chavez Ravine.  As it should be.  I just wish the 3 game set was on the weekend instead of Mon-Wed.

Does anyone here like Octoberfests?  I love 'em.  This is my favorite time of year for beer.  Founders Breakfast Stout is also due out in a couple of weeks.

I like beer.  My preference is light lagers and pilsners.  Should that be served, I'm there.  Our Octoberfest activities won't start here for a few more weeks...largely due to the weather.

I am of German heritage.

Octoberfest beers don't necessarily have anything to do with October.  They're also known as Marzen beers, which is German for March.  Back in the day, before refrigeration, the Germans brewed their beer when it was cool in March, then store it in cellars until it was ready.  Usually September or October.

My wife grew up in Germany with American parents.  She found it interesting that German Nationals would sit their beer outside for 20 minutes to allow it to warm up if offered by her parents.

Sorry, but even as a German, I like my beer cold.

That's an interesting tidbit, and didn't know that until now.

Temperature is key.  When I lived in Germany, the beer wasn't warm, it was root cellar temp.  Many American beers are served far too cold.  Totally kills the flavor.

Since then, I try to strike a balance.  I do keep a thermometer in my beer fridge downstairs, just to make sure things don't go out of whack.

In case you couldn't tell, I am a total beer geek.  The explosion of microbeers in the US has me stoked.

Another key is the quality.  Mass brews like coors, bud, miller, etc almost have to be cold.  German beers can be served warmer because they just taste better and aren't bitter.  I was stationed there twice and loved whatever local pils they had on tap at the gahsthouse (doubt I spelled that correctly). Of course the heffes and bocks are awesome ... which is why I now drink Shiner Bock whenever possible lol

Totally agree Niner.........and Germans love to have a foam head on their beer for a good reason.

It locks in the flavour of the beer and have you ever noticed Europeans drink their beer really fast.....so they get the FULL Flavour.

Oregon is tops in the US and its been that way for a while.  But the rest of the country is catching up.  We've had 5 small breweries open up here within just 15-20 miles from my house in the last couple of years.
