Throughout October, F&W is squash-spotting on Instagram using #FWMuse. Awesome chefs like Marcus Samuelsson and Stephanie Izard are posting gorgeous shots of their new gourd-filled dishes. Per usual, we headed to the bar. The micro-season for pumpkin drinks is upon us and F&W’s not wasting time. Here, the best alcoholic ways to consume pumpkin, from expert pumpkin beers to pumpkin juice cocktails.
Classic Pumpkin Beers
Southern Tier Pumking: Southern Tier brewed this strongly spiced copper ale as an ode to Púca, a mythical Celtic creature who takes wayward travelers for life-changing rides on its back. It’s an appropriate mascot. The beer is known for turning pumpkin beer deniers into pumpkin beer lovers, thereby changing their beer drinking lives forever.
