I definitely am your typical girly girl who loves wine and cheese but if a good craft beer comes along…you will definitely find me with a cold one in my hand! Fall beers are most likely my favorite beers- flavors are unique, nutty, cinnamon enriched and great to drink while sitting by a campfire. Here are some of my likes and loves this season!
I am across this article from Today, breaking down some of the go to seasonal beers for this season! I have tried them all and are definitely great but I provided a few that are worth trying! I agree Dogfish is hands down the best pumpkin beer you will find but it is on the pricey side (and they only make a limited supply, once sold out most beer distributors will not restock)
My favorite Oktoberfest Beers:
1. Sam Adams OctoberFest- A true american classic beer company giving you a rich amber beer that pairs awesome with a hot soft pretzel!
2. Paulaner Octoberfest – First time I ever had Paulaner Beer was at a german beer hall. Ever since then I am hooked. When I saw this in the stores I had to get it. This beer provides the perfect amount of sweetness and is higher in alcohol than a traditional lager. Lighter in taste than most seasonal beers.
My Favorite Pumpkin Beers:
1. Shocktop Pumpkin- Your typical wheat beer with a splash of pumpkin sweetness. Definitely refreshing and not too many spices added, just the perfect amount
2. Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale- Little bit of pumpkin, little bit of hops, little bit of spices… All around great beer.
TIP: Most pumpkin beers are rich and heavy in flavor. Don’t think you cant have food to go along with this one of a kind beer. Cheeses, duck and roasted turkey or stuffings are perfect for these beers!
