Southern Tier's Pumpking is my #1. If you can find it, id def recommend it.

If theres a BJs in your state their Pumpkin Seasonal is good. http://www.bjsbrewhouse.com/locations/nation

St Arnolds Pumpkinator is also a limited release but really good and a diff take on pumpkin beers.

Elysian's The Great Pumpkin.

Harpoon's Imperial Pumpkin

Heavy Seas The Greater Pumpkin

Avery's Rumpkin

Dogfish Head's Punkin

Blue Moon's Harvest Pumpkin Ale. Great beer for a macro brewery.

Rogue's Pumpkin Patch Ale

Boxcarr's Pumpkin Porter

Schlafly's Pumpkin Ale

All those are placed in my higher ups of pumpkin beers.

Good list ^.

Shipyard's Smashed Pumpkin is pretty decent as well if you get it in your area.

Weyerbacher's Insanity. Goddamn fantastic. Barrel aged goodness.



New Castle's Werewolf. Its only like 4% abv but its pretty flavorful. Would have again if offered.

I thought so. I don't like the regular one either. Try a single though. Wouldn't want you getting a sixer, hating it, and then cursing me to fucking hell.

lmao. Ill give it a try this weekend ... for science, and come back with a full report on Mon XD

I had forgotten how amazing this stuff was. Perfect blend of flavors, really smooth and mellow, with a small kick. Its a little piece of heaven and I dare say this is probably my top 2 or 3 in pumpkin beers.


Good stuff from Alaskan, pretty smooth, and a good companion on a nice coldish night, would buy another 6er to just have around the house,

so I was unfamiliar with unibroue brewery(I know, shoot me) so from a podcast, I heard to try la fin du monde(if you are a hot female and want to know how to properly pronounce this, pm me).

I never been a fan of the blonde ale since i always hated the after taste in most of them but this one was really good.

doesnt' make me rethink my perception of these types of beers but if there ever came a time where I'd have to choose one, I'd choose this one and I'll be a very happy drunk. don't get me wrong, the look of it and the smell of it is f'ing awesome but god damn that after taste, I just can't get over it. du fin du monde is my exception!

i picked up a 4pack of a darker variety off the shelf from unibroue but I haven't tried it yet so can't comment but i suppose I will soon. there's a very tough work week ahead.

heck if a brewery could completely turn around my perception on a beer type of dislike, this could very well become my favorite in north america...(can't believe i just said that)

You guys have any Pumpkinators left in town? I think we only got like 3 cases total for the whole Valley. I know Houston's surrounding cities (S.A., Austin, etc) get it by the shitload though XD

@ Cheer. That's some good stuff. IMO its like a pre-autumn beer, regardless of its whole Xmas themed marketing. Not too light, not too heavy.

Not sure if it was me, but this was dam near horrible. Lemongrassy sour-ish flavor, some citrus too, but not all that well blended together. Light to med. sediment also. Argh


2012 Vintage. It has aged very nicely. Spices have not only mellowed out, but also continue to blend very well. Almost taste like a fresher version of an IPA. with a small kick that you usually get from the spices in a Xmas Ale.

We ran out within a day or so : /. Also it was a 1 p/ person limit, due to the low quantity we got down here.
If you can get your hands on it, Id def recommend, that stuff is beyond words.
@ bottle form, you might wanna try Specs, I know they have a wider variety of craft beers than most places.

Unibroue is fantastic.

St. Arnolds Pumpkinator. Fucking awesome. One of the better pumpkin beers. They need to fucking expand already.



New Belgium Trippel. Wouldn't get again.



Elysian's Superfuzz. This was pretty good. Didn't really get the blood orange but just straight up grapefruit.



St. Arnold's Summer Pils. Damn good. I'm pretty mad they were able to pull of a pils like this. Again I wish they'd expand to the East Coast.



21st Amendment Fireside Chat. Eh. Its good but not memorable.



Oh I also had Southern Tier's Warlock the other day. Fucking awesome. If you can get it, try it.

Yes! I don't know how to explain it but its fucking awesome. Can't think of another craft pils that comes close. Fuck you St. Arnolds!

Some good stuff these past few weeks.

Unibroue Maudite. Excellent.



Unibroue La Fin Du Monde. Excellent.



Real Ale Brewer's Cut Kolsh. A good take on a kolsh (though kolsh's aren't my thing).



Left Hand's 400 Pound Monkey. Pretty good.



Sierra Nevada's Celebration. Excellent. I buy a case every year.



Heavy Seas Winter Storm Catergory 5 Ale. Very nice. If you like ESB's, you'll like this one.



Left Hand's Octoberfest. Decent attempt.



Elysian's Dark o The Moon. Excellent.



Left Hand's Good Juju. No. Just no.



Oskar Blue's Ten Fidy. Excellent.



Weyerbacher's Merry Monks. Aside from the creepy label art, excellent.



Elysian's The Great Pumpkin. Excellent.



The Duck Rabbit's Milk Stout. Very nice.



Left Hand's Milk Stout Nitro. Very nice.

Some decent to good stuff these past few weeks.

Stone's Expresso Russian Imperial Stout. It was pretty good.I enjoyed Lagunita's Cappuccino Stout more (and its available always).



Troeg's The Mad Elf. Very good (but fucking strong!). Its an acquired taste.



Full Tilt's Bergers Cookie Chocolate Stout. Screw this bullshit. I was excited to try this, like this, and trade this but dammit all to hell. Bergers is very famous around here and these guys didn't do them justice IMO.



Weyerbacher's Old Heathen. Nope. I'll give their Heresy a try though which is the barrel aged version of this.



21st Amendments + Elysians 'He Said' Baltic Style Pumpkin Porter. Awesome stuff.



21st Amendments + Elysians 'He Said' Belgian Style Trippel. Nope. Very disappointed.



Greta Divide's Hibernation Ale. Pretty good but somewhat forgettable. I could do maybe like 2 but definitely not a sixer this season.



Southern Tier's 2XMAS. Excellent. As hipsterfuckingesque as it sounds, it taste like fucking XMAS, .

There was a chocolate beer that I loved that I purchased. Sadly, I don't remember what it was called.
