A Light Version of 'America's Best Beer' Will Arrive Next Year

A Light Version of 'America's Best Beer' Will Arrive Next Year Bell's Two Hearted Ale is getting a 'lo-cal IPA' iteration set for release in early 2020.

We asked bartenders, restaurateurs, and general managers of some of the coolest bars in North America to weigh in on their favorite autumnal brews.

From Oktoberfest beer to brown ales to pumkin stouts —here are the best fall beers you can enjoy This is your fall beer if you’re still not ready to reconcile the fact that grocery stores are selling For all the beer ’s roasty-toasty flavors, there’s a strong spine of crisp hops—which makes OBD the perfect

We are creeping into the darker, colder, less fun months of fall. Know what might warm your cold heart? One, or many, of the best fall beers available. There’s no bad time to drink beer, but fall might be one of the best times. As the temperature dips, you’re finally able to drink some of the heavier, darker (more flavorful) beers that would just weigh you down in the dog days of summer. But it’s still not so cold that those trendy hazy IPAs are off the table.

Of course, with more choice comes the paradox. When you can drink basically any of the beer on the table, how do you actually figure out which to uncap? Making that simple decision has only gotten harder as the wave of craft beer enthusiasm brought confounding terminology and tasting notes to a beverage people literally crush against their foreheads. What’s the difference between an imperial stout and a single stout? A stout and a porter? Who decides whether this is an Amber Ale or a Brown Ale? Do I want something that tastes “dank?”

Your head spinning, you’ve probably defaulted to whichever beer had the coolest label. And honestly, that might have worked. But if you’re looking to do things a little bit more intentionally, we’re here to help. We talked to eight bartenders, restaurateurs, owners, and general managers from across the country (and Canada!) about the best fall beers they and their favorite customers come back for as the weather cools. They range from six packs you can find in your local grocery store to beautiful bottles you’ll have to uncork.

The Best Brown and Amber Ales

Every expert we spoke to said they gravitate towards brown and amber ales during the cooler months. For good reason! Darker ales are made with roasted malts, which gives them a kind of toasty flavor. The darker the malt, the darker the beer.

Bell’s Best Brown Ale was the first beer mentioned by several of our experts. “I associate it with cooler weather, but it’s also doesn’t act too heavy,” said Matty O’Reilly, a restaurateur in the Twin Cities who owns Republic MPLS. “It has a great malt backbone, caramel and chocolate in the profile, but it’s 5.8% ABV and smooth AF. It’s seasonally appropriate in it’s depth, but you can crush a bunch of them, too.”

The Role of Your Beer Glass Is More Important Than You Think

The Role of Your Beer Glass Is More Important Than You Think For suds lovers and brew newbs alike, here's a guide to types of beer glass, plus where they came from, and what kind of beer to serve in each one. When I first encountered it, beer only came in cans or Solo cups. But now that tailgates and off-campus parties are but faint memories and my options are more craft and less mystery keg, I decided it’s time to step up my game and find out—just why are there so many different shapes of glasses for beer? A better first question might have been: Why use a glass at all? It has to do with the fact that your nose and mouth are a dynamic duo when it comes to your sense of taste.

It's 8.4% ABV, so if you’re having one beer this could and should be the one. But then have like 2 more because life is pretty short."

IPAs and stouts are my two favorite beer styles. You can dive right in with a Guinness, which is an easy stout to drink , or you can transition to more malty beers by drinking red ales or amber ales I have only had a few stouts / porters and I wasn't a fan. What beers would you guys recommend to

Fall is the perfect time to drink beer . You probably spent a good portion of the summer enjoying a frosty brew while you attempted to stay out of the blistering sun as much While warm weather is for pale ales , pilsners, IPAs , and sour beers . Fall is perfect for lagers, porters , stouts , and brown ales .

The Best Porters and Stouts

Porters and stouts are both types of ales, but they usually feature malts that are roasted even more than those used to make amber and brown ales. They tend to be the heaviest beers, but also feature nutty and chocolate notes that could offer comfort against a brisk fall chill. Since the historical difference between the two is hotly debated, there is no universal standard to distinguish one from the other. Either way you go, you're going to get something dark, and hopefully delicious.

If You Think You Hate Beer, You Likely Haven't Tried These 5 Approachable Styles

  If You Think You Hate Beer, You Likely Haven't Tried These 5 Approachable Styles Beer culture in America has swung back to embrace the crisp classics of Germany: pilsner, lager, and other styles low in alcohol and long on flavor. For many years, the beer pendulum in the U.S. had moved to bitter West Coast IPAs and heavy, higher-alcohol brews. But the recent interest among both the craft and casual drinker in German-style beers marks a series of thrilling returns. A return to beer’s history. A return to the styles that immigrants first brought to America. A return to simple brews that you can drink without mental fogginess, without foiling diet, or without feeling overly full.

The word imperial, when applied to beer, is usually an indication that this is a strong, high ABV beer. "This is an imperial stout that's aged in Willet Rye Barrels.

When it comes to something like this, I want a 10-ounce pour."

The Best Fall Lagers

Lagers often get a bad rep, mostly because it's an enormously expansive category or beer. Yes, Coors Light is a lager, but so are a ton of well-balanced, flavorful beers that do not taste like toilet water. Many of our experts said they gravitate towards darker styles of this brew, particularly the kinds with extremely long German names.

"Anytime you see a beer name with the suffix -ator, it's a doppelbock," says Elise Capers, general manager of Axelrad Beer Garden in Houston, Texas. "This one has a mild molasses flavor, with toasty and roasty carmelized darker fruits."

Weihenstephaner Korbinian

To explain why he loves this doppelbock, Chekaldin told us an extremely evocative story of its origin. According to him, a monk name St. Korbinian won a permit to brew this beer by defeating a bear on his way to the Vatican. "Now we can all enjoy one of the best strong, dark lagers in the world," he says. We have no way to verify this story, but Chekaldin's enthusiasm makes us at least confident this beer tastes incredible. (Capers is also a fan.)

A weizen doppelbock is a doppelbock made with wheat. According to Capers, it's got a similar molasses flavor as the doppelbock. "But when you put the wheat in it brings a whole other level of nuance. It's got almost a banana pudding flavor and lot of clove. I used to suggest this beer to anyone who was a little scared to drink beer when I was a server."

The Best Sour Beers and Lambics

In our current climate of obsession with anything pickled, it's no surprise that sour beers (also called Lambics, depending on where the ingredients are sourced) have become more widely available and widely liked. They're usually formulated with a more complicated mixture of yeasts that produce tons of wild, tart flavors that would be completely unwelcome in a smooth lager. It might seem like an odd choice for the cold weather (isn't anything sour and sweet perfect for summer?), but a lot of experts turn to these kind of beers as they prepare to hibernate.

Guevara loves this lambic, which tastes a lot like white wine. "It's a classic Belgian. You have a steak, you have dessert, then you come to our bar two hours later and have a glass of this. It helps after a heavy meal. Put this on your Thanksgiving table."

Nick Kennedy, who refers to himself as the "Senior Executive Barback" at Civil Liberties Bar in Toronto, found a new appreciation for this Lambic on his mother's 60th birthday. "My mom, who never drinks beer, tried a pour of this and her eyes lit up. 'This is the best cocktail I've ever had,' she said. 'It's not a cocktail,' I said. 'It's not? What kind of wine is it?' she said. 'Mom, it's beer!' 'Beer? I haven't had beer in 40 years.' I love that my mom got to skip 40 years of mediocre craft beer culture. I'm looking forward to crushing lambics with her for the rest of the season."

The Best Fall IPA

Most of the experts we talked to were really tired of the craft IPA crazy that's been raging for over a decade. And, they noted, the assault of hazy fruit hop flavors provided by conventional IPAs doesn't really make sense for the colder months. That said, there were a couple of IPAs, interestingly made by the same company, that some of our experts were looking forward to drinking this season.

"It is hop harvest time and “wet” hop harvest ales are in season," said Roper. "It is hard to beat Sierra Nevada’s Northern Hemisphere Harvest Ale. The fresh hops explode on your tongue." This is a good thing!

The Best Fall Ciders

Yes, yes, we know ciders aren't beers. But there is really nothing quite as refreshing as a crisp, slightly tart, just sweet enough glass of cider. Several of our experts agreed.

"Ciders are always at the top of my list this time of year," says Gunn. Peckham's ciders, which are made in New Zealand, are some of her favorites.

The Best Pumpkin Beers

Pumpkin beers were another divisive offering among our experts. Most said they were too syrupy and poorly balanced (too much nutmeg!) for their tastes. But if you do want a pumpkin beer, there are a couple that were deemed passable.
