Stuff we like: Fall drinks October 23, 2011

Fall is a great time for drinking. We’re really busy, there are great beers going on, and….well….when isn’t a good time to be drinking?

Here are some beers we’re into right now:

River Horse Imperial Pumpkin Ale

Onion Brewery Pumpkin Ale

Duck Rabbit Porter (even though it’s not seasonal, it’s fall-ish and delicious)

Update: Victory Moonglow Weizenbock

Don’t forget some autumnal cocktail options — subdued seasonal fruit flavors combined with the nice edge of hard alcohol.  These are definitely on the to-do list:

Amaretto and cream soda, mixed in equal parts

Pear and Sparkling Cider Cocktail

Ginger Smash (with gin!)

Glühwein (Mulled Wine) — this is a tiny bit early in the season (over excitement for the chillier weather!), but mulled wine is hands down amazing, fragrant, and flavorful, even when the landscape is sans snow. Must drink this out of a mug!

And of course, the traditional hot whiskey toddy. Not exactly a new and exciting flavor combination, but nevertheless still evokes fall in all the best ways. Use honey instead of sugar to get a smoother, less obvious sweetness.

Try them. You’ll like them.

    1) is glühwein like gløgg? wikipedia says: yes! but i think gløgg is a funner word to say. gløgg gløgg gløøøøøøgg.
    2) duck rabbit is from nc! have you had their milk stout? i love milk stouts for when it’s cooold. left hand’s is nice too and has the bonus of an attractive label which, let’s be real, is what i’m in the beer-drinking business for anyway.
