Truly there is no off season for beer, but when those cooler nights that hint at fall start then folks start to feel the siren’s call of beer. Maybe it’s because there are so many delicious fall beers!
First let’s talk Pumpkin. Weyerbacher Pumpkin is my favorite, but I know lots of people think Southern Tier’s Pumpking is the jam. Dogfish Head Punkin, Terrapin’s Pumpkinfest, there are so many good ones, it just depends what you want, lots of spice? Buttery like pumpkin pie? High alcohol or easy drinking?
Then there’s Oktoberfest, the ancient German fall festival that has been absconded by frat boys. I personally like German Doppelbocks better than Oktoberfest Biers, but they have their place for drinking in the sun as brown leaves blow past.
And before you know it, it’s stout season! Old Rasputian always calls my name, but Cherry Street’s Coconut Porter has been blowing me nutty coconut kisses!
