Halloween Tips and Tricks

At far as fall food and drinks go, pumpkin flavors tend to dominate the bunch, but not everyone is a fan of this festive squash, particularly when it comes to fall beers.

For those looking for non-pumpkin flavored fall beers, check out these five labels.

 

The Bruery’s Autumn Maple

This beer is brewed with 15 pounds of sweet potatoes in each barrel and contains notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla and maple syrup.

 

Abita Harvest’s Pecan Ale

A craft beer brand out of Louisiana, Abita’s Harvest Pecan Ale is an American Brown Ale made with real Louisiana roasted pecans.

Harpoon Brewery’s Flannel Friday

Flannel Friday is a seasonal hoppy Amber Ale from Harpoon Brewery, and while it doesn’t neccesarily contain fall flavors, per se, it does come dressed for the season in its own flannel label.

On Fridays, we wear Flannel - drink, I mean drink. ????(????: @beerstreetjournal) . . . #flannelfriday #lovebeerlovelife #flannel #flannels #craftbeer #lovebeer #lovelife #tgif
