With Oktoberfest and football season both in full swing, there’s no better time to indulge in a brewski. But good German beers can be hard to come by here in the U.S., and we know that barley-and-hops bevs aren’t every girl’s guzzler of choice. So, we’re sharing our favorite fall drinks, be they traditional beers or seasonal twists on cool cocktails! Choose your favorite(s) and fall on in.
Pumpkin is one of the season’s most powerful tastes, so enjoy it in a refreshing brew instead of a heavy pie. Pumpkins plus fall spices make up Smuttynose’s Pumpkin Ale for a bev that’s best enjoyed around a fall campfire. Smuttynose is currently only available in the Northeast/Eastern seaboard, so check out Beer Advocate’s list of pumpkin beers if you’re located elsewhere!
