New York City's Best Local Fall Beers

by Kerry Jepsen on Sep 12, 2017 in Roundups

While you can drink whatever you want to in the fall season, beer just happens to be a delightful go-to. Here in the Big Apple, there are tons of local breweries pumping out exciting brews for all seasons, and we are definitely excited to present our fall roundup for local brews to drink this season.

Big Alice Brewery: Honey Wit
Big Alice Brewing, located in the East Village and made in Long Island City, is constantly pumping out new and creative beers. For the fall season, we recommend trying out their Honey Wit beer brewed with honey, orange peel, and coriander — this beer’s light crispness is a refreshing way to bring in the new season.

Grimm Artisanal Ales: Candlepower
This wild farmhouse ale, brewed with sage and pink peppercorns, boasts strongly of barnyard funk, dry musk, warm sage and herbs. Brought to you by Grimm Artisanal Ales in Brooklyn, this beer will let you revel in the fact that it’s becoming chilly outside.
 
Circa Brewing Co.: Amber Ale
Brand new to the scene of NYC breweries, Circa Brewing Co., located in downtown Brooklyn, is pleased to open their doors and their kegs to the public with delicious, classic beers. Amber ales are always a sure bet when it comes to fall beers, and this one is no exception; bready and hearty with a light toffee sweetness, this amber ale is rock solid.
 
Strong Rope Brewery: Pork Chop Express
While it may not necessarily taste like a pork chop — and though it’s definitely not brewed with pork chops — there is something to be said about the Pork Chop Express blonde ale from Brooklyn’s own Strong Rope Brewery. The light fruitiness of this beer is met with a touch of musk, and the grainy cracker taste and aroma is a perfect accompaniment to a day of apple picking upstate.
 
Heartland Brewery: Smiling Pumpkin Ale
There’s a reason pumpkin ales are a thing — for the most part, they are delicious. To be clear, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill pumpkin ale, either; this is a real ale brewed with roasted pumpkin and spice like clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Delicious and full of integrity, this is one pumpkin ale you can drink without feeling basic.
 
Bridge and Tunnel Brewery: 1642 Mespeatches Ale
Named after the Native American tribe which is what Queens Maspeth is named after, this beer is brewed with honey and spruce and modeled after a long time brewing recipe steeped in Dutch brewing tradition. The ale, hoppy and piney, boasts a decent amount of body, yet the gentle sweetness of the honey makes this a well balanced brew for fall.
