Fall Seasonal Beers: Something Delightful is Brewing
TAP INTO THE SEASON'S TASTY OFFERINGS FROM CLEVELAND BREWERIES
Autumn. Harvest time. We are blessed both by nature's bounty and by her annual pageant of dazzling colors. What better gesture to toast it all than with a season-inspired, local beer? Crafted with fragrant spices, toasted malt or locally grown pumpkins, here are a variety of delicious ways to raise your glass to fall. Cheers!
Lakes Brewing Company
A classically smooth German style creation, Great Lakes Brewing Company's Oktoberfest has prominent nutty and toffee-like malt flavors with a blossoming of hops. It pairs well with roasted pork, potato pancakes or, of course, another round.
Location: 2516 Market
Avenue Cleveland, OH 44113
Available: August-early October
Pumpkin Ale Thirsty Dog Brewing Company
This must-drink pumpkin ale is brewed with honey, spices and five varieties of pumpkin locally grown exclusively for Thirsty Dog. Rich. Creamy. Delicious. The caramelized pumpkin lends a golden orange color that rivals any jack-o-lantern - and will likely have you grinning like one.

Available: September 20-November
Old Zahm Oktoberfest Market Garden Brewery & Distillery
One bold beer. Full-bodied, yet smooth, Old Zahm Oktoberfest explodes with toasted malt. This is your father's classic German brew. Prost!

Cleveland, OH 44113

Spooky Tooth Imperial Pumpkin Ale Fat Head's Brewery
It's like pumpkin pie in a glass. The rich amber color and a chewy, creamy mouth feel complement the aroma of pumpkin and spice. Do yourself a favor - skip dessert and order another.

Rd., North Olmsted, OH 44070
