Craft Beer Cellar: Pumpkin Beers

16 Oct

I’m not sure why everyone gets so excited about pumpkin things in fall more than they seem to over any other seasonal food item, but when it comes to pumpkin beers, I can understand. I’ve been wanting to make my own six-pack of beers, so when I got a coupon in one of those flyer-things that come in the mail for 10% off a make-your-own-six-pack at the Craft Beer Cellar, it was enough for me to go check this place out.

This store is serious about their craft brews. They have the store organized by regions and have a nice selection of local brews as well. They had a whole display of pumpkin beers. I could have made 5 six-packs from their huge selection, but my wallet refrained me. They also have rotating beers on tap where you can get your growlers filled, and I think they rent the space out for brewing-related events and meetings.

I like that you can buy a single beer from any six pack they have, especially since I haven’t tried but maybe 5% of the beers they actually have in the store. If you’re looking for a beer you can’t find at the grocery store, or just want to try something different, I would definitely recommend checking this place out. The store is located at 1937 W. Brandon Blvd., in the plaza with the Chili’s in front of the Sams’s Club.

Check out the pumpkin beers from my six-pack creation. I would definitely get all of them again except for the Southampton Pumpkin Ale; it was just ‘eh’:
