It’s that time of year again 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 six seasonal brews you autumn know about.
Of course, it’s not fall in Boston unless Oktoberfest + Jack-O are on tap. Stop by the Jamaica Plain brewery or downtown taproom to grab a pint of the Basic Witch Beer — a brown ale with lactose for a sweet, creamy impression.
Don’t skip the cinnamon sugar rim on the UFO Pumpkin or this year’s limited release collab with Dunkin’ — a latte inspired ale.
Give the David S. Pumpkins Ale a sip. This golden-hued ale is brewed with a blend of autumnal spices features mild notes of toffee and maple, plus tastes like a fresh-baked pumpkin pie.
The Pumpkin Piescraper is a pie-inspired beer with pumpkin, vanilla beans, fall spices, maple syrup, and milk sugar. This is available on draft and in cans.
When pumpkin season is in full swing it means it’s also time for the return of Lumina, a pumpkin witbier featuring spices like cinnamon, coriander, cardamom, and vanilla bean.
The Dorchester brewery has a limited-release pumpkin ale called Pie Fight ready to pour. Run, don’t walk to try the pumpkin spice amber ale before it runs out.
