6 Best Local NYC Beers for Fall

by Kerry Jepsen on Oct 4, 2016 in Roundups
For beer lovers, fall means some of the best brews of the year. Oktoberfests and pumpkin ales fill brewery taps and we’ve rounded up some of the greatest seasonal brews from our very own local breweries. These are beers that take those classic fall staples and make them a must try for those seeking a little something beyond the norm this autumn.
 
Big Alice Brewing: Sweet Potato Farmhouse Ale
Brewed with sweet potatoes, this medium-body brew has the dryness and subtle sweetness you'd expect from a farmhouse style beer. Yet, the earthy notes from the sweet potato as well as the vegetal sweetness from those spuds makes it a truly special sip for the season. (6.2% ABV)
 
Brooklyn Brewery: Oktoberfest
Of course the Märzen Oktoberfestbier is a style often seen, yet local brewing heroes from Brooklyn Brewery have created a riff on this style that is truly memorable. It's a full-bodied lager, that is malty, satisfying, and goes down easy and  is of course a New York staple to be enjoyed during the fall season. (5.5% ABV)
 
Bridge and Tunnel Brewing: 3 Sisters Pumpkin Ale
As if a pumpkin spiced ale wouldn’t find itself on this list… 3 Sisters Pumpkin Ale from Bridge and Tunnel is unlike anything you’ve had yet that's pumpkin spiced. The name is derivative of the essential food groups of the Native Americans—mainly corn, beans, and squash all of which are incorporated in the brewing process. (6.5% ABV)
 
Heartland Brewery: Not Tonight Honey Porter
Of course Heartland Brewery is producing Oktoberfest and pumpkin beers; however, direct your attention towards this baby for the fall season. Dark and rich with a lingering gentle sweetness, like molasses and honey—this beer is sure to satisfy as the nights get cooler. (6.5% ABV)
 
Bronx Brewery: Autumn Pale Ale
Bronx Brewing knows how to do a pale ale. This fall, be sure to look out for their seasonal submission, the Autumn Pale Ale brewed with freshly pressed apples. Notes of wood and mint give way to maltiness and a subtle piney bite, ultimately creating a lovely autumnal brew to binge. (6.5% ABV)
 
Transmitter Brewing: Oak Aged Biere de Garde
For those die hard enthusiasts this one is a must grab. While this beer is not limited to the fall season, it drinks perfectly for the chilly months. Earthy, funky, and malty the beer is rested in red wine barrels providing further depth and complexity. Perfect to buy now or cellar for later. (7.3% ABV)
