October has arrived but, don’t be scared- it is just another month of frighteningly good deals on beer. Pettyjohn’s is celebrating with SKA-loween. To you that means a dollar or more off any Ska Brewing Package. This Durango brewery will be celebrating 20 years of quenching the thirsty in and around Colorado. We have been big fans of all their beer since day one. Peter from Ska will be here with Ska treats on October 8 from 4-6. Come by and get all the knowledge you can handle. The GABF Gold-Medal-Winning True Blonde Ale has a taste that is mildly sweet from the use of local honey, followed by bready malts, a touch of tangy wheat, a pleasantly mild bitterness and citrus hop flavors in the end. It’s terrifyingly tasty. Their Special ESB has caramel overtones with some tart fruit notes. It is so special it’s spooky. Pinstripe Red Ale has a perfect balance of hops that simply meld with the caramel malts, making it the flagship brew and also eerily delicious. Modus Hoperandi IPA brings with it citrus aromas followed by pine. As it dances across your tongue you get bitterness and following close behind is a melding of more citrus and pine and a light caramel sweetness. Modus is menacingly yummy. Rudie Session IPA is another package that will be featured this month. It has a big fruity hop aroma of pears and watermelon candy, but is relatively low in actual bitterness. It is startling how sessionable Rudie is. And also be on the lookout for special release packages for GABF and the big anniversary, Pettyjohn’s will bring in what we can when we can. Don’t sit there petrified this October- come in and check out our creepy good deals on our chillingly cold beers.
