Fall Beers

Autumn is here and that means changing leaves, comfort food, holidays and cool autumn evening spent with family and friends. What says autumn more than sharing a good dark beer with the deep flavor autumn beers are known for with friends.

Autumn is known for beer there are even holidays to celebrate it. Autumn beers are deep in color and flavor. Here are autumn's finest offerings that go perfect on cool autumn nights. Autumn beers are all about the richness of the harvest, spices, orchards and smoke to a backdrop of hearty reds and browns for a much richer beer. with the richness of the malt and slightly higher alcohol content Autumn beer is the only beer that I will drink. Is as much apart of fall as pumpkin pie of Halloween to me. It is truly a time of the I look forward to the most.

Pumpkin beer- nothing makes you want to grab your sweater and welcome the season more than a good Pumpkin beer with it mild scent of cinnamon , and pumpkin they are perfect for cool autumn nights.

Pumpkin Beer had had a long history in the U.S everything from a health tonic to a family staple. Pumpkin beer has even had folk songs made about it.

Some of the best pumpkin beers to enjoy on cool evening are

Dogfish Head Pumpkin Ale- It has a deep caramel color a sweet taste and a hint of all spice. That makes this beer a top favorite.

Shipyard Pumpkinhead- Is like having pumpkin pie in a bottle. It has a good amount of cinnamon and very light pumpkin flavor.

Buffalo Bill's Pumpkin Ale- the Original American pumpkin ale so they say. Has a mild pumpkin flavor.

Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale- lots of pumpkin flavor with a hint of ginger, and a smoky malt taste.

Some none pumpkin beers that wonderful to have on cool autumn nights are

Spaten Oktoberfest- is an amber colored beer, with mild sweet rye taste.

Sierra Nevada Tumbler- This a light mild beer that’s not to sweet.

Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin- This is an extremely dark heavy roosted beer. Has almost a chocolate taste.

      In today's modern world of air conditioners and central heating, I think the concept of seasonal beers is out dated.In the winter, I can put the central heating on high, put on my Magnum PI shirt and enjoy a Maui Bikini Blonde Lager. In the summer, it's on with the air con at the freezer setting and sit shivering with a Tally Ho Barley Wine. I love drinking whatever beer takes my fancy. Unfortunately, many breweries don't see things the same way. So, pleasures such as Fullers Summer Ale are not available outside of a narrow window of opportunity. Sob sob.
