15 fall seasonal craft beers with absolutely no pumpkin!


I like Cinderella’s original car as much as the next guy, but it’s too early for orange fruit beer. Here are 15 fall seasonal craft beers you should be drinking instead of pumpkin beer. Now go use that extra day off for Labor Day to drink all 15.

Of course, like the awesome cocktails recipes shared yesterday, these fall seasonal craft beers have absolutely nothing to do with the labor movement. Holidays are just a great time to drink excessive amounts of beer.

Little Sumpin’ Wild – Lagunitas

It’s like a Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ but with more booze. What’s not to like?

Foray – Deschutes

What would happen if Belgians gave up and started making IPAs? Here’s your answer.

Flipside Red IPA – Sierra Nevada

Tropical fruit and citrus. Sounds like summer; tastes like fall. How? Magic.*

Ten Fidy – Oskar Blues

This might be on shelves by now. It might not. It’s sorry for partying.

Mars: The Bringer of War – Bell’s

This DIPA is the first in Bell’s Planets Series. To be consumed only with epic music in background.*


Harvest Saison – Samuel Adams

Sam’s commercial says they make 974 different beers per year*, and this is one of my favorites.

Moonglow Weizenbock – Victory

Isn’t Moonglow a celebrity kid’s name?* It’s definitely a damn fine beer

Tour de Fall – New Belgium

Pale ale perfect for cycling enthusiasts and/or people who like to drink beer.

Tramonay Rouge – Saranac

Saison with grapes sources from NY. I’m pretty sure that makes it healthy, right?*

Double Trouble – Founders

9.4% DIPA will have you seeing double… especially if you suddenly find yourself upside down.


Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale – Boulevard Brewing

Actually a year-around beer, but tastes even better in the fall.

Bitches Brew – Dogfish Head

“If peeing in your pants is cool, consider me Miles Davis.”

Nosferatu – Great Lakes Brewing

Red Ale named after the earliest movie Dracula. It’s only in 4-packs, so you know it’s good.

Autumn Ale – Breckenridge

“Always straight to business, eh Morpheus?” That’s why I like you, Breckenridge.

Stone 18th Anniversary IPA – Stone Brewing Co.

Congrats on making it this far, Stone Brewing. Now get back to work. I can’t live without your beer.*
