Six Fall Beers You Should Try

Fall Beer You Should Try

Fall is finally here. It's crazy because it feels like it was just a few weeks ago that I posted our favorite summer beer. There is no better time than Autumn's first few weeks when it is still "back porch weather" when my husband comes home from work.  I know I've mentioned this before, but I couldn't imagine life right now if the surge in the craft beer movement didn't take place.  There is little my husband and I enjoy more than spotting some craft brew with a cool label and just trying it out.  

I hope you guys are fortunate enough to have a good craft beer retailer near you.  The Craft Beer Cellar in Newton is our go-to for getting our edbrewcation (ha) on different beers worth the try.  The staff is so knowledgeable that if they're not just hammered from drinking beer all day long, I don't know how they do it.  They always have a recommendation we end up loving.  

So I asked my beer experts to round up a few of their favorite brews for Fall.  And, as always, all of their recommendations were on point.  I also want to preface this list by admitting I am not a beer connoisseur; I just like good beer.  Therefore, you won't hear me talk about the nose, clarity or what fruit or herbal notes are pulling through.  It will be more of a Homer Simpson, "It is good" description.  Cheers and Happy Fall!


Fall Beer You Should Try


       Did you know Sierra Nevada's Pale Ale is the 2nd best selling craft beer of all time behind Sam Adams Boston Lager?  Well they have certainly continued to top their own success with their 2016 seasonal, Oktoberfest.  It is never the same year to year on account of partnering with different German brewers to find new approaches to the style, which gives you something besides the PSL to look forward to every Fall.

       Another German Oktoberfest style beer, Jack's Abby Copper Legend is a little malty, a little hoppy and a little sweet. With the brewery located just down the road from Boston in Framingham, MA, this winner is brewed with locally sourced wheat. It is a great beer for the season and available in cans!

       An apple cinnamon oatmeal amber ale!  This beer has made my Fall brew fantasies come true!  It sips as delicious as it sounds.  It is their take on an Apple Crumble and is brewed with apple cider, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Move over pumpkin beer, apple pie beer has just kicked your jack-o'-lantern face.

       Ok, ok so I'm not totally off pumpkin beer especially after trying Wormtown Brewery's Fresh Patch Pumpkin Ale (another MA beer!).  I've had pumpkin beers that are a little too sweet and almost taste artificial.  Wormtown Brewery's recipe contains the perfect blend of natural pumpkin flavor and spice.

       Brewed in Plymouth, MA, this American brown ale is rich, smooth and perfect for Autumn.  The multiple varieties of malt used in brewing makes this ale really complex and interesting.  I also love that it comes in cans!

Victory Brewing Company Festbier

       I'm going to end this list with one more Oktoberfest.  Like any good Fall beer, Victory Brewing Company's Festbier is a perfect balance of malty and hoppy.  The brewery is located in PA, but this beer is brewed using only imported German malts.  It is easy to drink and very satisfying!
