5. Autumn Maple, The Bruery (Placentia, CA)
A cut above your average pumpkin beer, mostly because it don’t use pumpkins—those are actually yams. This is a Belgian-style brown ale brewed with vanilla, molasses, maple syrup, and other spices, so there’s naturally a lot going on here. Don’t expect it to be too carbonated, but the alcohol is also somewhat dangerously subtle, considering that the high ABV can knock you on your ass pretty quickly.
