Nothing slakes that late summer thirst when you're relaxing on a beach, camping near a lake, or just grilling on your deck, like a tall, frosty, malty glass of Pumpkin beer. Are you serious craft beer community? Seasonal creep gives me the seasonal creeps.

If the sight of pumpkins and Märzens sitting next to lemon shandies and beergaritas looks strange, it’s not from drinking too much.
