The leaves are changing colour, the air is crisper… Tis the season for pumpkin-spiced everything. But I’m not really an Uggs and lattes kind of girl. I’m looking for something different.
This Thanksgiving weekend, why not spice up your life by bringing that something different to your gathering? A number of local craft breweries are offering pumpkin-spice inspired beers. Here are my top five. Some are only available in the taprooms of the breweries, but many are available at Manitoba Liquor Marts (who deliver by the way).
Barn Hammer Brewing – Moonlight Desires Smoked Pumpkin Saison
$7.49 – 650ml – 5.4% – 20 IBU (available at MB Liquor Marts)
Brazen Hall – Mrs. Oktoberfest South German Lager
$8 – 22oz – 6.4% – 25 IBU (available at their location only)
She's done Brewin, and Mrs. Oktoberfest over here is ready to celebrate! - Did you know that Women were the original beer makers of the family, in Munich, Germany? Munich is also the city that originated Oktoberfest! So I guess that means women are to thank for the most celebrated beer festival in the world?! - This South German Lager is clean & malty with notes of spice & earthiness...available after 4pm...get her while she's here! #oktoberfest #celebrate #germantraditions #bebrazen #mrsoktoberfest #localbrewery #betterwithbeer #girlpower #munich
