Buffalo Bill's Brewery Original Pumpkin Ale, one of our Top 10 Fall Beers

PUMPKIN ALE
Buffalo Bill's Brewery "Original Pumpkin Ale"

Buffalo Bill's was the first brewery in modern times to brew with the orange squash that appears to be the official vegetable of fall, with Halloween and Thanksgiving boosting its demand. This beer is modeled after the pumpkin ale George Washington is believed to have brewed, with baked and roasted pumpkins combined with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. With a golden orange color and a spicy nose reminiscent of the first whiff of a freshly baked pumpkin pie, this beer tastes like it smells and has been described as "pumpkin pie in a bottle."

Price: $9 for six-pack of 12 oz. bottles
