10 Best Fall Beers

September 20, 2011

When the weather begins to cool and we start to crave richer and more comforting foods, the same happens with beer.  Fall is the time of year when we want to drink darker and intensely flavored beers.  Gayot.com, an online guide to restaurants, hotels, events, and even cars, has compiled a list of the ten best fall beers. If you are interested in pumpkin ales, click here to read a previous post on this year's picks. Do you agree with their selection? What are you drinking this season?

What? No Oktoberfest beers or pumpkin ales? You have to be kidding. Sam Adams makes an Oktoberfest beer in the German Style that is just outstandingly good. It's one of the few beers I'll buy in multiple case batches just to have on hand until the holidays pass. Harpoon Pumpkin ale is a great fall brew too.

I am disappointed that no WI microbrews made the list! We have some kick ass selections. This is what I'll be drinking this fall. http://www.jsonline.com/features/food/128327098.html
