We're counting down the days, hours and minutes until the Wood & Wild Festival, taking place Oct. 22 at every HopCat location. In anticipation, we're checking in with our expert beer managers for suggestions about beers to try at each of our restaurants. Here, HopCat East Lansing's Kevin Stuible recommends a few "unicorns" (beers so legendary they defy comprehension) that will be featured at the EL Wood & Wild celebration:

Dogfish Head Brewery - Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout - World Wide Stout is one of America's strongest imperial stouts, pushing the style to the limit with this batch, hitting 17.1% ABV. And this year's release is tweaked a bit with the addition of Madagascar vanilla beans. [More info via Untappd]

High Water Brewing - Central Valley Breakfast Sour - The perfect sour to start your Wood & Wild adventure, this "California Lambic" is brewed as an homage to traditional Belgian lambics, and has grapefruit juice, and pear & lychee puree. [More info via Untappd]

Blake's Hard Cider Company - El Chapo - An imperial, tequila-barrel aged spin on Blake's favorite El Chavo, El Chapo is as spicy as its drug lord namesake. If you want to spice up your Wood & Wild experience, look no further. [More info via Untappd]

Oskar Blues - Barrel Aged Ten Fidy - “Aged through four seasons and from a blend of the top bourbons around, this Ten FIDY has morphed into a monster of cranked up flavor,” said head of brewing operations Tim Matthews. “Espresso, burnt sugar, rich chocolate, and caramel notes are now combined with the vanilla, oak, and bourbon flavors and all have been smoothed out during maturation.” [More info via Untappd]
