Fall is nearing. And American craft brewers are addressing things with a full slate of new beers you’ll want to chase down.
A Fest Best (Brooklyn, NY) Threes Brewing is celebrating the changing seasons with something inspired by the world’s largest beer fair in Munich, a style that has historically lent itself community and gatherings.
Pouring with a deep orange and crafted with a hefty dose of German Vienna Malt body and German Spalter Select Hops, Threes Hereafter is a 5.5% ABV Oktoberfest Lager that uses 100% German ingredients and is ultra-smooth and balanced.
“This style is less about the beer and more about what the beer symbolizes,” said Threes Head Brewer Matt Levy, “beer as a conduit to togetherness, community, seasonal transition rituals, and an appreciation for what came before us.”
Hey Pumpkin (Charlotte, NC) – One of the original craft breweries of the Southeast, D9 Brewing Company is looking to fall with the return of the brewery’s most anticipated seasonal release.
Crafted with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom, D9 Head of the Horseman is a massive 10% ABV Imperial Pumpkin Ale brimming with sweet pumpkin, fall spices and brown sugar flavors that inform but never overpower.
“Almost since the beginning of our history, Head of the Horsemen has been that one release where we have really been able to show the world what we can do at our best,” says Andrew Durstewitz, Founder and CEO of D9. “We innovated a lot of the ‘Flavor First’ attitude that has come to define the craft beer industry.”
