Brewed for September: The Best New and Seasonal Beer Releases

September is your month for Oktoberfests and pumpkin beers.

It's hard to keep up with all the beers coming out these days. And if you think the summer had more seasonal ales than you could imbibe — from Bell's Oberon to Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Extra — just wait until the fall is in full swing. This is the time of the year when Oktoberfest lagers, pumpkin beers, and the year's first wet hop IPAs all come out. In other words, it's a great time to try something different.

As part of a new monthly column exploring the just-released and recurring seasonal beers from breweries around the country, we offer you the brews to look forward to this September.  If you don't see your favorite pumpkin ale or Oktoberfest lager listed, that's probably because it was released in early August — call it another case of seasonal creep.
