As the leaves turn, our thoughts—and taste buds—turn to the pumpkin beers lighting up our shelves this month. Many October revelers believe pumpkin beers are a recent concoction, but they actually go back to pilgrim times!
Every major brewer crafts a pumpkin ale and many craft breweries carve out several. Some capture the taste of pumpkin pie so closely, bartenders rim glasses with cinnamon and sugar to serve them. Get your pick of the pumpkin beer crop at Spec’s… here are some of our favorites!
