There’s no need to feel like you’re missing out this season if you’re not a fan of pumpkin. The taste of fall comes in more flavors than one and that’s why we pulled some of our favorite non-pumpkin beers that you can enjoy this fall…without feeling left out!
Allagash Haunted House
Roasted Barley and Blackprinz malt curse this beer with a gravely dark hue. Hopped with Crystal, Chinook, and Saaz hops, this beer ends with a ghost of coffee-flavored bitterness and hauntingly complex malty palate.
Abita Pecan Ale
Made with real Louisiana roasted pecans for a subtle, nutty flavor and aroma. It’s brewed with pale, Munich, biscuit and caramel malts, and Willamette hops. The roasted pecans are added in the brewhouse. Crack one open and geaux nuts!
Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest
A refreshing ode to beer’s biggest party. Toasty malts and German hops yield notes of fresh bread and floral, fruity character for a balanced, crisp lager that makes any moment festive.
Long Trail Harvest Ale
Vermont maple syrup added during the brewing process yields a lasting sweetness on the palate that’s guaranteed to warm your soul alongside the rich, chocolate profile and earthy hop character of this classic American brown ale.
Dogfish Head Campfire Amplifier
Inspired by cold nights around the campfire, this milk stout is brewed with marshmallows, graham crackers, cocoa nibs, cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla beans and smoked malt. The only thing missing is a tent, and a few fireside ghost stories.
Based on the “Bavarian” style beer that Naragansett produced in the ’60s and ’70s, this elegant Oktoberfest style Marzen is brewed with the highest quality German malts and hops. Weyermann’s Munich malt creates a rich bready and toasty base, while the noble Tettnang hops add a crisp, but subtle and dry spiced finish.
