Fall is just around the corner and American craft brewers are addressing things with intriguing new beers you’re gonna want to have around as the weather cools.
Gordian Hot (Hershey, PA) – Tröegs Independent Brewing is returning a perennial fall favorite and it’s now available in gracious 16oz cans. Made with more than 3,000 pounds of Pennsylvania longneck pumpkins, a hearty heirloom variety similar to butternut squash grown locally for the brewery, Tröegs Master of Pumpkins is a 7.5% ABV subtly spiced Pumpkin Ale with notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla as well as a backbone of caramel malt.
“To us, a pumpkin beer should have pumpkin,” says brewmaster John Trogner. “We’re a Pennsylvania brewery, and pumpkins grow really well here, so using Pennsylvania pumpkins just makes sense. Tröegs lovers definitely appreciate the connection to local agriculture.”
Bold And Buzz-Free (Toronta, Ca) – With more craft breweries than ever before brewing serious non-alcoholic beer, ACB is expanding our coverage to include new NA beers that matter. And Partake Brewing has returned a special seasonal “bier” just in time for your Oktoberfest celebrations. Smooth and easy-drinking with a rich amber hue. Partake Oktoberfest is the perfect mix of rich dark malts and German. And it’s not only convincing, and only 30 calories, it’s delicious.
“Oktoberfest is our most seasonal and celebratory brew,” said Evan Cohen, CCO and President of Partake Brewing said. “In a landscape of changing brews, Oktoberfest is a classic tradition in the Bavarian brewing. It’s the perfect non-alc beer for all fall festivities.”
Frontline Football Beer (Longmont, CO) – It’s football season so you’re gonna need beer and Oskar Blues Brewery crafts the perfect ‘gameday’ option that’s as classically American as craft beers get. Strong, dank and tethered to a sturdy malt backbone, Dale’s Pale Ale is a 6.5% ABV refresher with a piney character that gives way to sweet, tangy finish.
