Spicy Fall Brews to Discover
If you have taken a stroll down our beer aisle recently, you have probably noticed another tell-tale sign that we have transitioned from summer to fall even though it still feels like summer outside: Your favorite crisp summer beers have been replaced by the heartier fall seasonal selections. If you are a summer-only beer drinker, it might be time to consider the beauty of weightier fall brew: They can pair wonderfully with a wide variety of foods, just like their summer counterparts can. Their richer, more complex flavors invite a new set of food partners to the table: Think hearty stews, chili, roasted/braised meats and roasted root vegetables. Here is a fall seasonal brew that we’re excited to carry that will give you a sense of what you can enjoy in the chilly months to come. Cheers!
