Best Fall Beers
Southern Tier, an upstate New York powerhouse, honors All Hallows' Eve with a beer bearing an insidious logo.
A scowling, snaggle-toothed jack-o'-lantern appears on the packaging, but don't fear, since this copper-colored ale pats your palate with velvet gloves. Pumking smells like a pumpkin pie, and would pair well with an actual pie at either Halloween or Thanksgiving. A well-balanced blend of hops and malt help mask the power of this beer, which weighs in at 8.6 percent ABV.
