5 Fall Beers To Get Your Hands On

Fall is here, bringing with it cooler weather and fuller-bodied fall beers. In preparation for the change of season, many brewers roll out limited and seasonal releases which are worth seeking out. The crisp weather begs for darker, maltier, more complex beers to warm us up. Here is our selection of 5 great fall beers to get your hands on now - preferable before they run out. 

Fall Beer Hopzeit IPA

Hopzeit Autumn IPA by Deschutes Brewery

This tasty brew is basically a hopped-up Märzen and utilizes the U.S. Sterling hop along with a few newer and lesser known German varieties - Herkules and Hüll Melon. The result is a copper-colored beer with a smooth malty base balanced out with bitter, aromatic hops that lend herbal, fruit and spice notes. It has the bitterness you’d expect from an IPA but it also has the bread and spice you’d expect in a Marzen. Give this seasonal release a try. 

Fall Beer Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest by Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

Every year, the brewers at Sierra Nevada collaborate with different German beer-makers to produce their Oktoberfest-style Märzen. This year, working with Brauhaus Miltenberger, they produced a really nice warm amber beer packed with honey, bready malt flavors and balanced out with subtle hoppy flavors. Its crisp and clean making it a crowd-pleasing option this fall season. This beer is definitely worth a try.  

Fall Beer Sumatra Brew

Sumatra Mountain Brown by Founders Brewing Co.

This bold imperial brown ale is a slow-drinking, deeply complex coffee beer. It gets its body from a few different malts giving it sweetness, depth of color, chocolate and caramel notes. The malty character is balanced out with a touch of bitterness from German and Perle hops. The addition of coffee adds another layer to this decadent beer. It isn’t overly sweet, as the nose suggests, instead offering a nice balance of roasted coffee and cocoa, caramel sweetness, and a slight hop bight. Sip this beer alongside some nice nutty cheeses - like gruyère - for a perfect fall treat. 

Fall Beer Oktoberfest Lager

The Kaiser by Avery Brewing Co.

This flavor loaded lager is a two-time medal winner as well as a favorite among beer drinkers, and for good reason. It weaves together rich, toasted Vienna and Munich malts with floral and spicy Hallertau and Bravo hops to create a bold dry Imperial Oktoberfest Lager. Rich and toasty with a hint of spicy and floral hops, this beer is well balanced and delicious. It comes in at 8% ABV making it is a solid drinking beer to enjoy on a cool fall night. 

Fall Beer Nut Brown Ale

Nut Brown Ale by Samuel Smith’s Brewery

As one of Britain’s older breweries, Samuel Smith’s makes tasty old-world style beers. The Nut Brown is made with water from a 250-year-old well and fermented in open air containers. It carries roasted accents with hints of walnut, caramel, and red apple. Aromas of toasted malt are balanced with hints of grassy English hops. This beer also has a bit of fruitiness from its open fermentation. It pours a garnet color and is relatively dry with a gently, malty, nutty flavor and a clean finish. It’s an approachable medium-bodied beer, great to try if you’re looking for an easy drinker on a crisp fall day.
