This year the folks at the Minnesota Craft Brewers Guild decided to hold their annual Autumn Brew Review at the end of October to give festival attendees a better fall experience. In past years, the weather has been extremely warm and didn’t accurately represent fall in Minnesota. This year there will be fire pits, a goat petting zoo, food trucks, s’mores station, wiffle ball batting cages, and a nice lineup of beers to go with fall colors instead of the summer heat. Autumn Brew Review is one of the longest running beer festivals in the country, and a fall backdrop promises to enhance the experience. Here are three beers worth seeking out if you are attending the festival.
Barrel Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale from Dangerous Man – This is a wonderfully balanced beer that doesn’t assault your palate the way a pumpkin spiced latte does. Warming alcohol with a nice balance of malt, hops, and spices will make this a festival favorite.
Pudding Dribbles from Forager Brewing – Maple sap, vanilla, cinnamon, cacao nibs, and toasted coconut are just some of the ingredients used to make this addition to the ABR lineup. Surprisingly this beer is not too sweet and will be your go to beer next to one of those fire pits.
Wild Rice Porter from Inbound Brew Co. – Wild Rice Porters have long been a go-to fall beer, and Inbound captures the spirit of this style. Flavors of baker’s chocolate and nutty wild rice will win over the hearts of festival attendees.
