The Bruery Autumn Maple

Top 10 Fall Beers

A bottle of The Bruery Autumn Maple, one of our Top 10 Fall Beers

BELGIAN-STYLE BROWN ALE
The Bruery "Autumn Maple"


The Bruery in Orange County, California, has its own take on the pumpkin beer style. Its Autumn Maple is a conglomeration of yams, maple syrup, allspice, vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, nutmeg and its own traditional Belgian yeast strain. The result is a bold, spicy, Belgian-style brown ale logging in at 10 percent ABV. The robust flavors and warming of the high alcohol make it an excellent libation to appreciate on a cold autumn evening. This beer is perfect for anyone who relishes the sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving, but with all of the spices in the mix, it smells and tastes like a pumpkin pie.

Price: $10 for 750 ml.
