    This is from the Moon River brewery restaurant in Savannah Georgia: moon-river-tater-sweet-potato-pale-ale. This was amazing.

  2. DocJ says

    Dogfish hands down on this list. Not even close. But Williamsburg Ale Works makes a great pumpkin beer.

  3. Sean G says

    Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. No-brainer. It’s one of the better beers all year, not just a great Pumpkin Ale.

  4. says

    I’d like to write in my favorite pumpkin beer, which just so happens to be local — Catawba Valley King Don’s Original Pumpkin Ale.

    If you are a fan of heavily-spiced pumpkin beers as I am, you will love this one.

  5. Shane says

    Where are Cottonwood Pumpkin and Terrapin Pumpkinfest? They should both be in the top! Southern Tier’s the best though. :)

    In the last couple of years the competition has gotten immensely better. The typical pumpkin beer used to be over-spiced and extremely acidic(to the point where I felt I was guaranteeing a bit of acid reflux by drinking one). That being said, nothing beats a Pumking especially when it has been aged for a year or two. Liquid pumpkin pie for the win! Parcela is a pretty close second imho

    Nice post. I haven’t had many of these. I’ll definitely try the Schlafly, Smuttynose, and Heavy Seas. My favorites are from Rocky River (Monster Mash), O’Fallon Pumpkin Ale, and recently Mine.

    Hugely underrated and my #1 without question – Heavy Seas The Great’er Pumpkin (barrel-aged)
