‘Tis the season! It’s time for pumpkin-flavored everything. One of the best parts about this, is the huge selection of pumpkin-flavored beers that are hitting the shelves. Here are the top five pumpkin beers for this fall.

  1. Southern Tier Pumking

Southern Tier Pumking is so savory and scrumptious. This beer is perfect if you kind of want dessert, but also kind of don’t. It’s basically a lighter dessert in alcoholic beer form. Slightly on the heavier side, very rich in pumpkin flavor, and satisfies that sweet tooth craving. It especially tastes great with a honey and cinnamon rim. Another plus is that it’s 8.6% alcohol content, so you will feel pretty nice after just one pint.

  1. Two Roads “Roadsmary’s Baby”

Two Roads “Roadsmary’s Baby” pumpkin ale sells itself with its ridiculously clever name, but if you still need convincing all you have to do is try it. It’s nice and light and smooth with great pumpkin and vanilla notes to it. Two Roads also brews this beer in rum barrels so it makes the flavor and taste even more pronounced and rich.

  1. Good Gourd Pumpkin

Good Gourd Pumpkin ale is not for the faint of heart—this beer has attitude. It is incredibly rich in pumpkin flavor and spiciness, but goes down surprisingly easy. Be careful, though, because it’s another strong one, coming in at 8.5% alcohol content. Something really spectacular about this brew is the pumpkin flavor tastes extremely organic, as if you were drinking it right out of a pumpkin.

  1. Shipyard Pumpkin Ale

Shipyard Pumpkin Ale is definitely for those people who truly love the pumpkin taste. It’s not very high in alcohol content so it makes for a relaxed night, but what it lacks in alcohol it makes up for in flavor. This beer has one of the most pronounced pumpkin tastes. It is so deliciously spicy and sweet, any pumpkin-lover will be satisfied after a couple of these.

  1. Elysian’s The Great Pumpkin

This is another strong one, but man oh man, is it amazing. It has that same spicy pumpkin taste as the others, but what separates this beer are the undertones of creaminess. It has a subtle malty taste to it that makes it great for lovers of stouts, too.
