Toronto’s thriving bar scene has led to the city becoming an epicenter for craft beer lovers. Many beer-orientated events are hosted throughout the year within the city and the GTA. After another successful Toronto Beer Week, it’s apparent that very few things usher in fall quite like seasonal beers and pumpkin-flavored foods. Since autumn is officially here, sample these 10 pumpkin beers to get into the spirit of the season.
Not all pumpkin beers are exceptional, but it’s always good to support your local brewers, especially at such a historic site. Black Creek’s Pumpkin Ale hits your nose with strong spicy aromas, but don’t think that what you smell is different from what you taste. This beer tastes very strongly of cinnamon, nutmeg, burned pumpkin seeds, and vanilla, not to mention a slight sourness and light carbonation. Although it is not a standout pumpkin ale, it’s still a good reference for the different styles of pumpkin ales made in this city.
