Brewed in the Mitten: Get Ready for Seasonal Fall Beers!
By: Toni Cunningham | September 11, 2013
While Bell’s Oberon holds a special place in my heart, there’s nothing quite like the craft beers produced in the fall.
If you ask me, pumpkin ale is what makes the autumn season so great–along with the changing leaves, of course. While Sam Adam’s Pumpkin Jack is a great choice, why not try a seasonal beer brewed somewhere in Metro Detroit? Also, by no means limit yourself to just the pumpkin flavored options this fall (even if they are the best).
Now that the weather is beginning to cool off (with the exception of today’s sudden heat wave), heavier beers are hitting the shelves and replacing the light, citrusy ones we sipped (or guzzled) all summer long.
Step away from the generic six-pack and take a look at the following list of local breweries, along with the beers they are offering this fall.
The Silverado is the truck that works as hard as you do.
Available since late August, Ichabod is brewed with real pumpkin and a generous amount of spices
I wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted to try all of these before the taps run dry. Just don’t do so all in one day! And, if you go to the brewery itself or somewhere out on the town, make sure you have a safe ride home. Happy drinking!
