Tasty Tuesday: My Top Five Pumpkin Beers

After sampling my fair share of pumpkin ales since they arrived at the LCBO (I admit, I was a little obsessed), I can now present my Top Five for this fall. Stock up on these babies for your Halloween party before they’re taken off the shelves!

If you want a hint of pumpkin…

Try Post Road Pumpkin Ale by Brooklyn Brewery. It’s the perfect introductory pumpkin beer for the uninitiated. Basically it’s a well-made beer with a side of pumpkin.

If you’re craving pumpkin pie…

Drink Nightmare on Mill Street Pumpkin Ale by Mill St. Brewery. It tastes just like sipping a slice of pumpkin pie with all those familiar, warm spices of nutmeg and cinnamon.

If a balanced beer is your brew…

Get Great Lakes’ Pumpkin Ale by Great Lakes Brewing. It’s in between the first two beers in terms of flavor. Not too mild, not too spicy, but like baby bear’s porridge, it’s just right. Plus it’s my favorite bottle design out of them all.

If you prefer something traditional…

Pick up the top-rated St-Ambroise Citrouille by McAuslan Brewing. This beer is clean, crisp and has just the right amount of pumpkin to make you appreciate fall.

If you’re itching for something different…

Then Saison Dupump by Great Lakes Brewing is the way to go. One of my favorite beer styles made into a pumpkin ale? SOLD.

Happy Tuesday and happy drinking!
