It’s the most wonderful time of the year… Pumpkin Beers! With so many pumpkin beers on the market it’s hard to know which ones to try. Here is a list of my top 3 favorites.
Brewery: Southern Tier Company
Style: Imperial Pumpkin Ale
I look forward to drinking the Southern Tier Pumking every year. I love the taste of pumpkin with vanilla, clove, allspice and nutmeg. I suggest picking up a 12 oz. 4 pack of these because the 22 oz. bottle is heavy to drink at one sitting. Pour your beer into a glass and let it sit, this beer tastes better at room temperature.
Brewery: New Belgium Brewing
The New Belgium Pumpkick has become one of my new favorites. This pumpkin beer has a tart cranberry bite and combines nutmeg, allspice and lemongrass. This pumpkin beer definitely stands out from the rest.
Brewery: Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Style: Brown ale
If you are looking for a pumpkin beer that isn’t heavy to drink, definitely try Dogfish Head’s Punkin. This beer still has a kick at 7% abv and has a great blend of pumpkin, brown sugar and spices. Also be sure to take a road trip this fall to Dogfish Head’s Punkin Chunkin event www.punkinchunkin.com.
