10 Fall Seasonal Beers Without Pumpkin
PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- As much as beer lovers look forward to the fall, taking in all the beer it has to offer can get a little daunting.
A fan of pumpkin beer, are you? It's been on shelves since July. Want a beer brewed with fresh hops? You're just about out of time to taste one. Love some Marzen and Oktoberfest beer? Well, if you didn't get over to Munich and have some Spaten, Ayinger, Paulaner, Lowenbrau, Augustiner Brau or Hacker-Pschorr -- or didn't get to your U.S.-based Hofbrauhaus -- you're left with either not-so-fresh imports or reasonable local facsimiles of said Bavarian brews.
We're not even a month into actual Autumn yet, but the beer aisles and tap suggest the season is almost over. Fortunately, there are a lot of breweries and beers out there that aren't such sticklers for beer dogma and don't feel that fall selections should be limited to regions with hop vines, brewers with piles of canned pumpkin sitting around or German imports. Somewhere in the middle is a lovely little group of malty, smooth and ingenious brews that stick out among the seasonals.
They don't smell like handfuls of hops, don't taste like a rack full of pie spices and aren't generally served up in liter steins. But these 10 fall-friendly beers will get you through the rest of the season without boring you by winter.
