Ahead, some of the latest and tastiest pumpkin ales, tailored to your very specific tastes. (RIYD = recommended if you dig.)More
How we imagine Starbucks would approach beers if they ever got into the brewing game, O'Fallon will release four new flavors this fall that read like one of the coffee giant's blackboard menus. Choose from Jack O'Latte, Vanilla Pumpkin, Apple Cinnamon Pumpkin, and Peach Pumpkin. Never a dull moment when you're kicking back with one of these new O'Fallon beers, in other words.
O'Fallon Brewery Fall Four Pack, available in select liquor stores throughout the United States.
This fall, Elysium will follow up on the success of its first seasonal release, Night Owl Pumpkin Ale, with a trio of tasty options. There's a smooth copper ale and a dark stout, but our favorite is this coffee-flavored (which may sound gross, but think of it as the perfect post-Thanksgiving dinner pumpkin pie + coffee combo) ale that packs a shot of Stumptown coffee for a bitter taste.
Elysian Brewing Company Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale (7.5% ABV), available August through the end of October in select U.S. markets.
