While the return of fall might mean PSLs for some of you, I like to think of this as pumpkin beer season. Everything from light lagers to dark stouts are filled with autumnal flavors, and I am here for it. Yes, the seasonal brew can be quite polarizing — my husband (much to my benefit) refuses to even try a pumpkin beer, let alone drink an entire pint.

But I will admit they're not all equal; finding a spiced-just-right brew can be an interesting albeit expensive journey. And that’s why I’m here. I tried a whole bunch of pumpkin beers, with no help from my husband, and I can tell you these seven sips are ones I’ll gladly drink from now till the cold weather really sets in.


Crisp and refreshing, this pumpkin ale has a faint cinnamon scent and sweet notes that make it an easily drinkable brew. If you like pumpkin pie and beer, this shandy is for you.

While O’Fallon credits its Pumpkin Beer as being its most popular seasonal offering, this vanilla-infused amber ale should not be overlooked. It features cold-pressed Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, which adds an irresistible flavor that strikes the perfect balance with the cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

Saranac Brewery takes great pride in the fact that this seasonal is made with 3,000 pounds of REAL pumpkin. One sip and you’ll agree this amber-colored ale is not just like all the rest. It’s brewed with cinnamon, allspice, cloves and ginger for a flavor that’s like fall in a bottle.

Pumpkin meets coffee in this full-bodied brew and you win. This beer is especially delicious if you’re into creamy, lactose-infused sips that are subtly spiced. Enjoy hints of chocolate, cinnamon and pumpkin.

This full-bodied brown ale comes complete with hints of brown sugar and spice, and it's a true fit for beer lovers — it tastes more like beer than it does overpowering baking spices. Brewed with baked pumpkins, it’s exactly what you want to sip as the leaves change.

When the weather outside is just starting to lean toward fall but isn’t quite there yet, this is the pumpkin brew for you. Made with pumpkin puree and a blend of seasonal spices, this unfiltered ale definitely features fall flavors, but it's a clean and smooth sip that’s nothing short of refreshing.

Buy It

Shipyard suggests you serve this wheat ale "in a pint glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon," and that does not sound like a horrible idea. As soon as you pour this cinnamon-infused beer you're hit with the fresh scent of fall in the best way possible.
