As the first weekend of cool weather descends on Cincinnati, I’ve been hard at work at an annual task of the season – picking this year’s favorite pumpkin ale. It’d be an understatement to say pumpkin is having a moment. From cookies to lattes to beers, it seems the world (or at least Pinterest) goes pumpkin crazy once the first chill of the season blows in. While pumpkin beer has been on the shelf for a few weeks now, I’ve been holding off as I prefer my seasonal beers to actually reflect the season they represent. So this weekend I took a trip to Party Source and picked up three of this year’s contenders — Rivertown’s Pumpkin Ale, Southern Tier’s Pumking, and MadTree’s The Great Pumpcan. Not a complete line up of the amazing pumpkin beers out there, but three hard hitters.
