Omar Ansari, co-founder of Surly Brewing Co
Summit Brewing's Oktoberfest (Märzen/Oktoberfest, 6.6%)
Omar says: "For me, Fall is all about Oktoberfest beers. That style is synonymous with the time of year. There's no one best single Oktoberfest beer, the fun is drinking them all. But I do like Summit's Oktoberfest and Schell's Oktoberfest. When they come out each year, you got to get out there and get them right away."
Surly Brewing's WET (American IPA, 7.5%)
Omar says: "My other favorite Fall beer, which is also my favorite Surly beer, is Surly WET. I just think about all that's involved in making our wet hop IPA, and that sums up what we're about at Surly. We fabricated special equipment just for brewing WET and a lot of hard work goes into brewing it as soon as the hops are delivered. It's super-fresh, super-resiny, and has a super-hoppy taste."
