The weather is starting to cool down and the leaves are turning here in New England. This may mean pumpkin-spiced lattes and apple picking for some. But here, it’s all about the beer. Fall arguably has the best seasonal beers. Here are our top five picks of the season.
Founders’ Breakfast Stout
If you love coffee, breakfast, and beer, this is the perfect fall stout for you. Available from September through December, Founders’ Breakfast Stout is brewed with flaked oats, chocolate, and Sumatran and Kona coffees.
If you’re looking for a refreshing wheat ale this fall, look no further than Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale. It has a distinctive taste but doesn’t kick you in the teeth with pumpkin flavor. It’s great with a cinnamon-sugared rim and a piece of pumpkin pie.
Sam Adams Octoberfest
What Boston beer drinker doesn’t love a cold Octoberfest in the fall season? We are sure you’ve heard of it but it makes the list because it’s malty, sweet, and oh so hearty. Octoberfest is a wonderful fall treat.
Southern Tier Pumking
Pumking is a bewitchingly sweet, deep-copper colored ale that boasts strong pumpkin spice and vanilla flavors. Pumking is a nod to Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is said to stop travelers in the night and take them on an epic ride. He is both feared and respected. This beer is scary-good.
Mayflower Autumn Wheat Ale
Mayflower Autumn Wheat Ale is a medium-bodied wheat ale that’s perfect for cool autumn nights. It combines the richness of dark ales with the fruitiness of traditional wheat beers to make for one balanced brew. This is a small-batch seasonal beer but well worth the wait.
