‘Tis the season for all things pumpkin, and that applies to our local breweries too. If you’d rather pass on the gourd-geous pours of pumpkin-flavored beer, there are plenty of other options to get in the spirit.

Here are 11 seasonal brews you autumn know about.

Sam Adams Boston Brewery

Of course, it’s not fall in Boston unless Oktoberfest + Jack-O are on tap. Stop by the taproom for a pint of the third annual National Coming Out Day brew Proud To Be! — a tart lime gose that tastes like a “Margarita Beer.” If you’d rather sip on the dark side, the roasty Oyster Stout is brewed with Wellfleet oysters and is now available in cans.

Harpoon Brewery

Step right up and try the newest collab: The Swindler. This pale ale is a play on butter beer and was made to welcome The Great Mr. Swindle’s Traveling Peculiarium and the Drink-ory Garden, which will be at the Seaport brewery through Nov. 6. Pro tip: Don’t skip the cinnamon sugar rim on the UFO Pumpkin or this year’s Box O’ Beer collab with Dunkin’.

Aeronaut Brewery

Snag tickets to one of the haunted brewery tours this weekend, or grab a pint of Zero Meridian, a malty amber country lager or “landbier.”

Bone Up Brewing

Give this stout a try at the Everett brewery — Dark Humor is brewed with pumpkin spices and aged in rum barrels + is available on draft and in bottles to take home.

Night Shift Brewing

The nostalgia tastes so good with the peanut butter porter Phone Home, inspired by the movie “E.T.”

Dorchester Brewing

The annual return of Runs of Pumpkin has hit the taproom. Run, don’t walk to try the pumpkin spice amber ale before it runs out.
