Boulevard collaborates with Ommegang brewery for Collaboration No. 4(September 22) - Two of my favorite American breweries had a sort of merger last year when Duvel-Mortgaat bought Boulevard Brewery.

Avery Brewing Releases Pump[KY]n Bourbon Barrel-Aged Beer(September 22) - On Sunday Avery Brewing Company released its latest session beer. At 17.22% ABV, perhaps it’s not a “session beer” by most standards, but for a brewery releasing 6 beers that are over 16% ABV within a period of 5 months, this is right up their alley.

So I’d call it a sessionable beer…your session just ends quicker.” Complete Story

Oktoberfest in numbers(September 19) - 58 - The number of Oktoberfests that actually happened in October. These days, a September start is standard.
