Founders Breakfast Stout
8.3%, American Double/Imperial Stout
Let’s start with breakfast. Technically, you can have any beer to accompany your first meal of the day, but this is really the only fall breakfast beer you need. It’s brewed with oats, chocolate, coffee, and all things good and holy, which is probably why it consistently ranks among the top beers in the country. If you get your hands on some Kentucky or Canadian Breakfast Stout, even better.
Atwater Brewery Bloktoberfest
6.3%, Amber Lager/Marzen/Oktoberfest, Detroit
In Detroit, you’re a long way from Germany, but Bloktoberfest is brewed with 100% German malt to give you a stronger, hoppier taste than a traditional German Oktoberfest brew. Suffice to say, das ist gut.
