On the last day of September the sunshine was brillant, the sky was intensively blue, and there was just the slightest hint of an autumn breeze. Riding my bike up from the lake and down Rue Montchoisy, I pedalled past Tom Beers, a store which opened this past year and has a wide selection of beer, and I immediately thought about, well, beer. The next day was the first day of October. With Oktoberfest already underway, not to mention the upcoming Geneva Beer Festival on October 21st and 22nd, I decided to stop and get some recommendations. I wanted something really local.
