Pumpkin, Pecan, and 8 Other Autumn Beers You Need to Try Before Winter Comes

Oh, fall. Sure, summertime is filled with sunlight, pool parties, and backyard barbecues, but autumn has plenty of things to bring to the table. Is there anything better than snuggling into your favorite sweater and sipping a pumpkin spice latte when it’s cold outside?

Speaking of pumpkin spice, it isn’t the only flavor that correlates with fall. Take a moment to remember your last Thanksgiving dinner, or brainstorm some of your favorite foods and drinks to indulge in when it starts feeling chilly outside. What are some seasonal specialties that come to mind? Maybe pecan pie, a warm cup of coffee, or a steaming bowl of oatmeal?

These foods and drinks are best enjoyed when it’s cold outside, but believe it or not, we’ve found something that will make your favorite fall flavors and dishes even that much better: turning them into a beer.

Luckily for you fall fans, there are plenty of breweries out there that offer a wide variety of autumnal brews, ranging from pumpkin beer to a seasonal breakfast blend. To make the transition to colder weather a little more enjoyable, we’ve rounded up 10 fall-flavored beers and where to get them once the summer ends.
