My Favorite Six Beers of Autumn
It's the best time of the year, isn't it? Most would agree. I like the changing of the leaves and the crisp nights. I like putting the lawn mower away. I like firepits with the neighbors on cool evenings. But I really like the beers of fall.
My neighbor Matt and I recently picked up a bunch of October beers that we though we'd enjoy. After a really fun afternoon, here's what we though were the best of the best: (It's like Oprah's Book Club except cooler)
Combines everything we like about fall. Brewed in our neighboring state of Minnesota, this beer is much like the 2016 Vikings, fast and impressive start, but a mellow finish.
A good starter. Crisp and refreshing after raking leaves. Also, a good sipper while handing out candy on Halloween night.
Heavy on the spices - especially nutmeg. A good beer - but like pumpkin pie, one is plenty.
The hops hit first. It's a fine brew with a hint of spicy caramel. Great beer. Gets our "Best Artwork on the Label" award.
"Usually, when I hear pumpkin in a drink, I want to puke - but this is highly consumable. Like grandma in a glass." - Matt
A couple of these could mellow Negan - and Negan needs some mellowing.
