Fall is here and October is right around the corner!

One of my favorite aspects of fall is pumpkin beer! I know the style doesn’t drum up much support from the people who view it as a drain pour, but I enjoy pumpkin beers. There is something about the pumpkin flavor and spices used to create a wonderful beer to drink as the weather gets cooler, leaves start falling, and it begins to get darker in the evening sooner and sooner.

I’ve had a ton of pumpkin beers over the years. From macro beer brands to my local brewery down the street, I have always had my eye out on pumpkin beers wherever I am. To get an idea of my favorite pumpkin beers, check out my Freakin’ Flight of Pumpkin Beers from last fall. This fall I am going to set out on a quest to drink and review new-to-me pumpkin beers during October and November.

Hard Seltzer Summer taught me that slow and steady wins the race. It’s almost October and I’m still drinking fruity hard seltzers. To that end, I will be seeking out one new-to-me pumpkin beer a week instead of trying to find any of the possible pumpkin beers out there, buying them all at once, and trying to drink them all before December.

This should be a fun adventure this fall. Stay tuned to the “Beer Reviews” section of the blog to keep track of what I and the rest of the Better on Draft blogging team are drinking, pumpkin beer or not.

By Ed Norton

Edwin "Ed" Norton was first introduced to craft beer when his designated fraternity Big Brother Vince asked him if he knew anything about the topic. Ed admitted his ignorance and the rest is history as Ed and Vince would split six-packs of craft beers each week during Ed's probationary status. Ed is now a craft beer enthusiast who is always on the lookout for a beer he has not tried when bottle shopping or drinking at breweries and bars. In addition to drinking beer, this livelong Michigan resident enjoys a bunch of hobbies that he doubts you really care about, other than drinking beer and sounding off about it.
