The Inagural Two Beer Dudes Oktoberfest is still over a month away but today marked a great chance to cruise up to Madison, WI, visit Star Liquor, and pick up some Oktoberfest and Marzen brews that we don’t get in Illinois.

I had been in contact a couple of times during the week with Adam, match supreme prem the stores general manager, to make sure they would be open and that this weekend would be a good time to pick up some beers. I didn’t want to leave anything to chance and my wife would shoot me if we made the 140 minute drive up to Madison for “nothing.”

Not only did I pick up eight different Oktoberfest and Pumpkin beers but some bigger breweries that I can’t get, namely Stone Brewing Company and Oskar Blues Grill & Brew. I really enjoyed Gordon and Dales Pale Ale from Oskar Blues earlier this summer, so I went for a refill on both. As for Stone, I have never had their beers but have heard some really good things, so I grabbed Arrogant Bastard Ale and Ruination IPA.

At this point, with my eight other beers, I decided it was time to clear the tab. Headed out to the car where my wife met me and asked if I had also purchased some New Glarus Brewing Company Spotted Cow. Back into the store for a few different brands for the wife and another one or two for myself. Sometimes it really helps to have a wife that enjoys American craft beer too.

Here is a list of the beers that I picked up for Oktoberfest:

After picking up this haul of beer from Star Liquor I am even more stoked for Oktoberfest Two Beer Dudes style. Enjoy!
