Upstate New York is Home to Two of the Nation’s Finest Fall Beers
Upstate New York has brewed its way to autumn glory!
As the leaves turn and the air turns crisp, the hunt for the perfect fall beers begins. For many, the moment has arrived to trade in the hoppiness for the rich, malty flavors of amber ales and copper lagers.
Well, New York should be proud that our state has been named home to two of the best for this very occasion. Two exceptional brews from Lake Placid Pub & Brewery and Southern Tier Brewing Company respectively have been named among America's finest in USA Today's 10Best seasonal beers list.
SOUTHERN TIER BREWING COMPANY • PUMKING ALE
For those who shamelessly flaunt their love of pumpkin spice everything, then Southern Tier's Pumking might be the perfect beer for you: it ranked No. 9 on the list.
While pumpkin notes take center stage in this imperial ale, there’s also a complex blend of vanilla, nutmeg, and allspice to add some decadent dessert notes to the overall flavor profile.
LAKE PLACID PUB & BREWERY • AUTUMN RYE
Featuring its famous Adirondack chair label, Lake Placid Brewery secured the No. 5 spot with its Autumn Rye. According to 10Best:
After a long day of leaf peeping in the Adirondacks, Lake Placid Pub & Brewery offers a wealth of flavorful beers to toast to a successful day on the trails.
A Toast to Upstate New York:
With Pumking and Autumn Rye, Upstate New York has solidified its reputation as a hub for exceptional fall brews. These two beers not only capture the flavors of the season but also reflect the dedication and passion of the local breweries that create them. Prost!
