Top 10 Fall Beers

Beers to Drink This Fall

By Bob Barnes

Fall is a season that has the word "beer" written all over it. Cool nights unleash a craving for hearty beers, whose colors mirror those of the turning leaves. Fall brews are more flavorful and more substantial than summer's bright quenchers. Colors deepen and flavors get toastier as the tastes of the harvest table call out for malty partners. It doesn't take much to trade up to luxury in the beer world, so why not live a little? Autumn's finest offerings await: seasonal specialties, solid standbys, innovative American craft brews and international ambassadors of style.
