There is no holiday season more identifiable with American traditions than Thanksgiving! And of course, one of the more cultural aspects to a solid holiday season like this month’s is a good beer to accompany every festive meal you’ll be gobbling up.

With Thanksgiving being all about a holiday that revolves around food, football and snacks, don’t just settle for any beer to complement your courses this year. Once the temperatures dip and the leaves start to turn, it’s time to welcome sweater weather and break out a nice, spiced and sweet, toasted brew that might even top grandma’s pumpkin pie served up after a mouthwatering turkey.

To help you make your decision this season, we take a look at six delicious pumpkin beers to enjoy the season and embrace all things pumpkin spice!

Breckenridge Brewery Nitro Pumpkin Spice Latte Stout

If fall is synonymous with PSLs, this is the brew for you. The smooth, seasonal beer combines real pumpkin with cold pressed coffee to create a festive, buttery brew that is also bound to keep you awake this season from the pounds of turkey devoured.

Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Wheat

A personal favorite, this pumpkin brew sets itself apart from several popular Oktoberfest drinks thanks to its rich flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice. Not to mention, it’s the perfect complement for seasonal soups like a warm butternut squash or beef dishes.

Samuel Adams 20 Pounds of Pumpkin

These season suds are like no other! Made with 20 pounds of real pumpkin per barrel and roasted malts, this beer gets its body and sweetness from spices like clove, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg bound to warm you up on a crisp day.

Death by Pumpkin

This Indiana made beer blends allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and whole Madagascar vanilla beans with pure pumpkin for a diverse malt fermented through cold-fusion for a crisp flavor reminiscent of that beloved autumn air.

Southern Tier Cold Press Coffee Pumking

If you are craving caffeine to stay awake through all those Thanksgiving festivities, but want the indulgence of a nice cold one, this beer with its pumpkin spices and nutty, chocolatey notes of cold press coffee will do the trick!

New Holland Ichabod

If you are looking for a beer that is almost like a dessert, this beer named for the famous Sleepy Hollow character is one you will absolutely adore. Made with pumpkin and offering crisp notes, it’s a bit on the side and sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. After dinner, try it out with your favorite dessert!
