Saint Arnold Brewing Company's Pumpkinator (American Double/Imperial Stout, 10% ABV)
Holly says: "Originally released as No. 9 in Saint Arnold's Divine Reserve series, this imperial pumpkin stout is not one to be taken lightly. Coming in at 10% ABV, the beer is dark, sweet, and packed with some of the best fall spices including cinnamon and clove, not to mention one of the most mouth-watering pumpkin tastes and aroma. While pumpkin beers can be pretty hit or miss with beer drinkers, nearly everyone can agree on Pumpkinator. Pair it with your Thanksgiving dinner or sip it casually through your Halloween horror movie fest."
Rogness Brewing Company's Rogtoberfest (Oktoberfest/Märzen, 5.5% ABV)
Holly says: "An Austin take on the classic German Oktoberfest style, Rogtoberfest is the perfect beer to help you welcome in the cooler weather (or at least the hopes of cooler weather). With a slightly red-brown tint, the lager starts off bitter but balances out with a nice malty finish and an aroma that can only be described as autumn. Rogtoberfest hasn't hit shelves yet, but when it does, stock up so you can enjoy the taste of Fall all season long."
