Abita Brewing Company Pecan Harvest Ale: This fine ale is brewed with a mix of pale, biscuit, Munich, caramel malts, and Willamette hops. Flavorful Louisiana roasted pecans are also added in order to give the brew a subtle nutty flavor. Great food pairings involve seafood, red meat, and of course nuts. For more information, visit 2. Dogfish Head Punkin Ale: This smooth brown ale is brewed with pumpkin meat, spices, and brown sugar to give you the ultimate flavors of pumpkin and caramel. Great food pairings would be the classic Thanksgiving dishes such as turkey, stuffing, or lamb but you can also combine it with roasted duck, dessert dumplings, or sharp cheddar cheese. For more information, visit 3. Samuel Adams OctoberFest: This rich flavor deep golden amber colored beer is a classic blend of hearty melts of deep yet smooth flavors of caramel. Octoberfest is a malt lover’s heaven due to its blend of four roasts of barley to create sweet flavors of caramel and toffee. For more information, visit 4. Founders Brewing Company Harvest Ale: With the first sip, your mouth is embraced with a juicy hop presence that is incorporated with fresh citrus and then followed by a toasted malt undertone. For more information, visit 5. AleSmith Evil Dead Red: Just like the sound of the name, this beer is deep blood-red in color, but with an aroma of pine and citrus. These hops balance the sweetness and richness of the brew’s caramel malts. A great combination to eat with this brew would be with caramel apples or toffee.
