Fall is here, and it’s time to break out warm, woolly sweaters, brown boots and puffy vests and get ready for the cool, crisp air that comes with fall. Also, with fall, comes a different type of beer. Beer that is darker and full of flavour that reminds us of the colours, scents, baking — and yes the pumpkins — of fall. Here are some new fall beers from across the USA that you may like to try.
Happy Autumn sipping!
