Alright, I apologize if there is already a thread like this, but I figured start one. I have only had Shipyard Pumpkinhead, Saranac pumpkin ale, and Sam Adams Oktoberfest so far. Although I like Oktoberfest, Shipyard is by far my favorite beer this Fall. Unfortunately almost all the beer distributors in my area are already sold out of it for the year. Any other fall beer recommendations or reviews?

Southern Tier Pumpkin Ale is the best out there that I have ever had. It tastes like pumkin oatmeal cookies with an 8.6% kick.
Pyramids oktoberfest is better than Sam Adams in my book.
Dog Fish Head Pumkin ale is pretty good but not as good as Sothern Tier

Oktoberfest is in season, so it's a great time to have at it. I love Spaten, Bell's makes a great one (expensive $$), and I don't drink Sam Adams because I feel all their beers are real mediocre, with the exception of Sam Adams Light, a pretty damn good light beer. I don't mind the pumpkin beers but I can only have one at a time, so I generally don't buy them. SHipyard is definitely one of the best ones though.

That reminds me, Anchor Steam will have it's Winter Ale coming out around November. I tried it last year and really liked it, but it was too late in the season and was sold out everywhere. I'd recommend trying it and picking up enough to last for awhile if you like it.

I'll have to try some of these out sometime soon. Never heard of Spaten or Southern Tier. I have heard dogfish makes pretty good beer. Was talking to a few of the local distributors and it turns out they're receiving their first fall beers in early to mid August. So knowing this now, I might have start looking for winter ales soon. Definitely will try Anchor Steam out as well if it's in stock.

Schlafly Pumpkin Ale is the best out there if you can get it.

I agree with Jess on the Schlafly. Being in the restaurant business I try a lot of beers and of the Pumpkin variety, which is really hot now, St. Louis has some of the best offerings between Schlafly, O'Fallon, and believe it or not, ShockTop has one of the best varieties I have tried. SA Octoberfest is completely overrated and is usually out way before October actually comes around as it is the fall equivalent to Blue Moon, meaning that it's one "craft" that all the Bud Light drinkers will try.

The only thing fall micros do for me is get me excited for the winter brews. Pyramid Snow Cap. Period. Kicks ash on any other winter micro.

Southern Tier Pumking - I wish they would make pumpkin pie that tasted this good.

I'm a big fan of the Sierra Nevada Tumbler. Great taste. Now if only the Ruthless Rye will come out sooner than later.
