North Valley Moms Blog - The Best Pumpkin Beers

It’s Fall and what does that mean?  Cooler weather (finally!), wearing flannel shirts, drinking hot coffee and PUMPKIN BEER! ๐Ÿ™‚  There are so many pumpkin beers out there so I decided to put a few to the test.  Find out what this mama enjoyed (and didn’t enjoy) on my pumpkin drinking adventure.

Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale Coors Brewing Company 5.70% ABV

By far my favorite of the beers I sampled.  Very smooth and tasty.  I will be drinking more of these! ๐Ÿ™‚

Pumpkin Porter Four Peaks Brewing Company 5.00% ABV

An enjoyable light beer and IT IS LOCAL!!! Bonus points.  Definitely will be getting this beer again.

Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale Boston Beer Company 5.70% ABV

This beer was easy to drink with just a hint of pumpkin.

Wasatch Black O’Lantern Pumpkin Stout Utah Brewers Cooperative 6.50% ABV

Not my fave but I can drink it. It has a strong aftertaste reminiscent of black licorice (anise).

Pumking Southern Tier Brewing Company 8.60% ABV

Very flavorful but I did not enjoy so much.  I was unable to finish this beer…

Shipyard Pumpkinhead Shipyard Bewing Co. 4.70% ABV

This seems to be an overall favorite but was my least favorite that I tasted.  Sweet but artificial?  I did not like the aftertaste and won’t be purchasing again.

 

A few more beers that I wanted to try but was unable to find:

Punkin Ale Dogfish Head Brewery

Night Owl Pumpkin Ale  Elysian Brewing Company

Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider California Cider Company

Red Hook Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter Redhook Ale Brewery

 

Do you have a favorite pumpkin beer?  Do you agree or disagree with my thoughts on the ones that I sampled?  I would love to know…
