All things pumpkin dominate the fall season and while most pumpkin beers don't necessarily contain pumpkin, it's the spices like cinnamon and nutmeg that remind us of tasty pumpkin pies.

Porters and Stouts

When fall sets in, the citrusy shandies are replaced in favor of darker brews. Porters are known for a chocolate or caramel-like flavor, while Stouts tend to have more of a coffee-flavor and fuller body.
