It seems like every year our favorite pumpkin beers come and go quicker than we'd like. This year we're sharing which old (and new!) pumpkin beer sippers you should definitely try. But act fast and get them before they are gone!
Schlafly Pumpkin Ale
New to the Chicago market and one of our personal favorites, Schlafly has finally hit the shelves of Binny's - EVERYWHERE! That's right, no more four hour road trips to get your hands on this St. Louis staple. Check out the other Schlafly goodies
that are now conveniently available at your local Binny's.
O'Fallon Pumpkin Ale
O'Fallon Pumpkin Ale is one of our Fall favorites year in and year out. We love how the pumpkin flavor takes center stage and the spices, while present, take the backseat as a balancing act. A pumpkin beer that is oddly quenching, it is far too easy to make your way through a 6 pack. Whether you choose bottles or cans this is a winner.
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale
Looking for something a little more drinkable, but still packing a pumpkin punch? We recommend Dogfish Head Punkin. Punkin helped launch the Pumpkin beer craze in America and consistently remains one of the top tier pumpkin beers in terms of quality year in and year out. The balance between hops, malt, spice, and pumpkin flavors is spot on.
Southern Tier Pumking
Our two most sought after pumpkin beers from years past, Southern Tier Pumking and Dogfish Head Punkin, finally have enough supply that we can send an email out telling the world how awesome they are. Do you like Grandmas pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving dinner or freshly baked pumpkin muffins? Then Pumking is the beer for you. Packaged in a 22oz bottle and clocking in at 8.6% ABV, Pumking is the ideal beer to share with family and friends alongside your favorite dessert.
Big Muddy Pumpkin Smasher
This beer continues to impress us with every year it's brewed. This heavy, but balanced brew is full of savory pumpkin pie spices and hints of natural cinnamon and nutmeg. You literally should have no problem "smashing" a few of these back as it is very easy to drink. Big Muddy's pumpkin ale is a sessionable pumpkin beer at best.
Greenbush Unicorn Killer Pumpkin Ale
Our friends in Michigan sure know what they are doing when it comes to seasonal brews. This pumpkin ale differentiates itself from other pumpkin brews as it has heavy aromas of nutmeg, marshmallows and brown sugar. It makes for a sweeter mix of our favorite fall flavors. The price is a bit steeper than most 6 packs - but trust us, it's worth it.
Saugatuck Pumpkin Chai
This beer tastes like Starbuck's Pumpkin Spice Latte met and mingled with Argo Tea's chai tea latte. It's incredible. Try adding it to our Pumpkin Spice Vanilla cocktail
for an extra boost of flavor.
