4 Local Beers to Drink This Fall

Contrary to internet belief, not all food and drink consumed in the fall needs to be pumpkin flavored. With upwards of 40 breweries in St. Louis (and the surrounding area), a good brew is easy to find. I recommend enjoying these four local beers as the leaves change colors and the temperatures dip. Sorry, pumpkin, we’re saving you for pie!

Oachkatzlschwoaf, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company A beer traditionally served at Oktoberfest in Munich, Oachkatzlschwoaf is created specifically for the annual Urban Chestnut Oktoberfest celebration. The “export” style lager is a malty beer with bready notes that pair well with, you guessed it, a hearty pretzel.

Chocolate Milk Stout, 4 Hands Brewing Company Few things are better on a chilly evening than a stout. The rich, velvety texture of the dark brew is complimented by aromas of dark chocolate. I wouldn’t call it a dessert beer, but I wouldn’t not call it a dessert beer.

Flash Bang, Excel Brewing Company With tropical notes and hints of grapefruit, this unfiltered American wheat beer is a hoppy treat. Though technically not a seasonal release, this dry-hopped brew is great for autumn days.

TIPA, Schlafly Beer Showcasing zest from the southern hemisphere, this Tasmanian IPA is brewed with 100 percent Australian hops. Incorporating flavors of citrus and pineapple into the traditional hoppy characteristics of an IPA beer, the Schlafly TIPA is a refreshing brew to sip this fall.
