In the fall, pumpkin beers are a go-to choice for many beer drinkers. The sweet and nutty flavors of these beers provide a perfect way to get out of the sunshine and into the cooler weather that is just around the corner. In light of this, we’ve compiled a list of some popular pumpkin beers to help you decide which one will be your new favorite!
Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale
Pumpkin is the favorite flavor of all time, and this seasonal release tastes as good as it smells. This beer has a rich body orange color with a liquid caramel nose, reminiscent of pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving morning – before anyone had to go back to work. Taste this nostalgia-inducing brew today!
Samuel Adams 20 Pounds of Pumpkin
Made from a pile of pumpkin, some malted barley and the pure spirit of Samuel Adams for true happiness. Allowing you to drink your beer like your ancestors drank theirs (we’re assuming they took their ale in through the nose). Drink it alone or with friends, but be careful because sometimes these things can get worse before better.
Dogfish Head Pumpkin Ale
There are few things better than pumpkin pie, except for this. Dogfish Head has combined all of the spice you love about Thanksgiving dinner with a rich brown ale to create something wickedly delicious. It’s brewed not-too-spicy, but crispy with plenty of warmth from molasses and brown sugar flavor—or as we like to think: it’s everything you and your taste buds need together in one perfect drinkable package. So this season say “yes” to fall and enjoy the flavor explosion that is our Pumpkin Ale.
Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin
Get your pumpkin fix with a twist. Shipyard has been around for over 100 years and there’s no denying that the New England brewers have perfected their versions of America’s favorite seasonal beers. But who could ever get tired of pumpkin beer, even if it is nearly October? Don’t try to tempt fate because this one is expertly crafted right down to its 9% ABV so you can enjoy every last drop.
We tried Elysian Punkuccino craft beer and we loved it so much. We’ve never tasted anything like this before! It’s got just the right amount of sweetness, mixed with a wonderfully subtle pumpkin spice flavor that makes for an excellent change in pace from regular coffee. Plus, even when you’re drinking it over ice, you don’t have to worry about getting warmed up or feeling sleepy – because at 9% alcohol by volume (ABV), Elysian Punkuccino is one little can of happiness that’s perfect for 3 o’clock in the afternoon!
We hope that this list has helped you decide on your new favorite pumpkin beer! If not, come by our store and we can help you find the perfect one for any occasion. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
