Cheers to Pumpkin Beers!

Happy All Hallow's Eve, folks. Tis the season to celebrate pumpkin beer, and here are some ideas to get your mouth a-waterin'.

From the crew over at Beer America TV:
Pumpkin love continues, but this time with a twist, it's not an ale but a lager, the only one of its kind in the world! Lakefront Brewing gets a look and a taste with their Lakefront Pumpkin Lager. We also drop some knowledge about one of America's Founding Fathers.


* Some intrepid brewers make their pumpkin beer ... imagine this! ... INSIDE A PUMPKIN. Check out this slideshow: Brewing in a Pumpkin.

* Read about that "experiment" in more detail in Pumpkin to Tunkin: Last Call 

* One of those intrepid brewers is a contributing writer for Mother Earth News. Read his latest article: Brew Your Own Beer 

Also of seasonal interest:

Make Your Own Hard Cider 

* Those Beer America guys also took a look at Sam Adams Octoberfest.


Now what?

Now, I drink pumpkin beer! Here are the brews from my neck of the woods that I'm planning to try this weekend:

* Brooklyn Brewery Post Road Pumpkin Ale (New York)

* Greenpoint Beer Works/Heartland Brewery Smiling Pumpkin Ale (New York)

* Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale (New Hampshire)

But what about you???

Yes, you should try some pumpkin brew too. Drop a note about your favorites in the comments section below.

Ready ... Set ... Go!
