What's the most notable symbol of fall? The pumpkin, of course!

It's about time we start getting ready for all things creepy -- all things Halloween. It only makes sense to prepare with a great pumpkin beer in-hand!

These three beers are great because they all capture the essence of the season in different ways. We have a brew recommendation for people who prefer subtle flavors, one for beer enthusiasts who love big, bold flavors, and another for drinkers who just enjoy the classic flavors- cinnamon, and of course, pumpkin.

Check out the best pumpkin beers to get you ready for the spookiest time of year!

    Ballast Point Pumpkin Down

    The caramel and toffee maltiness of Ballast Point’s Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, they add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor (5.8% ABV).
