Andrew: I just picked up a bottle of Southern Tier Imperial Pumking—by far my favorite pumpkin beer. I know that pumpkin beers are one of the most popular seasonal styles, but I find it strange that they are becoming available earlier and earlier. It’s seasonal for a reason—you expect to see them in the fall and not in July during a heatwave. It’s probably just because brewers recognize the popularity and want to cash in sooner and for a longer period. I’m not really complaining about it, since this just means we can enjoy these delicious beers for a longer time each year, just making an observation.
