As the color of the leaves change, so does the color of our beer. Autumn brings on darker and more flavorful beers. Tis the season for pumpkin ales, autumn browns, harvest ales and brews made with spices and other fun ingredients!!
These beers tend to be maltier and richer than their summer cousins. Full of flavor, I call these “jeans and sweatshirts beers”…perfect for that last BBQ or gathering before the winter closes in on us. Too often these beers are squished between the oktoberfests and pumpkin beers and the winter ales and xmas offerings, but some of them are definitely worth the search. Sierra Nevada’s Tumbler is a solid autumn beer that is fairly widespread and easy to find. Check your local breweries for their autumn offerings and enjoy!!
