The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are starting to cool, and the tree's leaves are beginning to change colors – it can only mean one thing: fall is finally here! And with the arrival of fall comes the perfect weather for enjoying a cold beer. If you're looking for a new type of beer to try this season, here are three styles that you'll love.
What makes Beer Seasonal?
With the changing seasons, it's important to have a beer that matches your mood. Beers are designed for every occasion and can be enjoyed year-round or just during certain parts of the calendar years; however, most seasonal brews incorporate ingredients that only appear at their peak after being harvested--this gives them more flavor than usual as well as an added benefit in terms on taste!
With that in mind here is a list of 3 beers that pair perfectly for the fall season.
3 Best Beer Styles for Fall
First up is a Marzen. Marzens can vary from pale to amber in color, making them perfect for cooler weather. They have a toasted bread or biscuit-like malt aroma and flavor, and they go down easily on a cool day. Try an Augustiner Brau Marzen Bier
Next is Pumpkin Ale. Pumpkin Ales are a popular style of beer in the United States. They can be brewed with pale ales, wheat beers, porters, and stouts. Often produced as a seasonal beer by adding pumpkin, squash, nutmeg, cinnamon, and/or vanilla to the mash bill. Try Picture If You Will - Bottle Logic Brewing
Lastly is the English Brown Ale. They range from deep amber to brown in color. Caramel and chocolate flavors are evident. They can be nutty, malty, sweeter, and lower in alcohol. Try McAllister Brewing Co.'s - First Love
