Fall officially starts next week. It’s time put away the shandys, maibock and hefeweizens until next year. But what will you drink between now and dreadful winter? Fall seasonals. It’s the only way.
Here are five tasty autumn brews that will help you get ready for hibernation mode:
One hard cider I’m not angry with is Angry Orchard’s Apple Ginger out of Boston. I mean can you really go wrong with the flavors of apple and ginger? Sweet, yet tart this is one hard cider worth trying. Bonus: it’s gluten free.
Lager and Ale
Made by 21st Amendment in San Francisco, He Said is a collaboration between Seattle-based Elysian Brewing. The best part: This box collection includes two cans of He Said Baltic-style Porter and two cans of He Said Belgian-style Tripel, both brewed with pumpkin and spices.
The great pumpkin craze is in full effect. From pumpkin flavored Oreos and lattes to vodkas and almonds – there’s no stopping pumpkin as the official flavor of all. One pumpkin product worth trying this fall is Elmsford, New York’s Captain Lawrence Brewing Company’s Pumpkin Ale. It’s hoppy, spicy and just plain good.
Speaking of hoppy, BigLeaf Maple Autumn Red by Anchor Brewing in San Francisco uses a unique blend of Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Cascade hops. This brew wouldn’t be fall ready without a hint of maple syrup and two caramel malts, pale malts.
Sweet Potato Ale
This beer is one bad mama jama. Sweet Yamma Jamma by Indeed Brewing in Minneapolis is brewed with sweet potatoes and spices. It’s beyond delicious and will make you embrace fall in every sip.
So embrace the full flavors of fall with one these tasty seasonals, your taste buds will thank you.
