Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Released: July

This Easton, Pa.-bred pumpkin ale is a big Mid-Atlantic favorite even early in the season for the basic fact that it smells and tastes like pumpkin pie and has enough alcohol behind it to make it similarly warm.

Loaded with caramel and spice before and packing a 8% ABV punch, a little cardamom and clove give it a witbier-style bite without any of the citrusy tartness. We can't emphasize strongly enough just how much Weyerbacher's ample portions of pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg boost this brew's overall flavor, but seeing this around so early is anything but a disappointment for drinkers looking forward to a long fall.
