Tonight I went out drinking with some friends. Our first stop was Speakeasy Saloon & Dining House.

If I remember correctly, this beer was a standard, good-tasting Ocktoberfest beer.

After having a shot of Fireball, I resumed enjoying this beer.

It was the only beer on the menu that was close to being non-standard. Other draft options were Stella Artois, Yuengling, Guinness, etc.

After having the Octoberfest, I opened a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale. However, later in the evening I had a Samuel Adams Boston Lager.
