Schlafly Oktoberfest & Would You Rather

It’s finally October which means we will be coming at you with many autumn-themed episodes. The first episode in this series looks at a fall tradition, getting together with your friends for a slumber party, getting drunk and playing Would You Rather. Josh and Sass pose several traditional Would You Rather questions and some… less than traditional. Now we ask, would you rather drink from a pint or the bottle? This week’s beer is from Schlafly and is a celebration of the traditional Oktoberfest Märzen, a perfect autumnal beer.
