Have you been to the beer/liquor store lately?
Back in the day, if you wanted a beer, your choices were pretty simple – Budweiser, Michelob, Coors….
But now we are in the world of craft beers, unique ales and delicious ciders!
I am definitely NOT a beer connoisseur, so for me to recommend the best tasting beers, ciders and ales to drink in the Fall would probably only be based on the funky names they have!
So, I polled our readers!
I eagerly awaited for the onslaught of recommendations! Annnnnd, not gonna lie, crickets could’ve been heard if our social media pages had sound.
But, that’s ok! Because, like me, our readers are due for a little education on Fall-ish beverages, and some great recommendations!
So, I did me some research. Turns out, there are Facebook pages and Instagram pages devoted to this very subject!
Here in Frederick, MD, we love our local breweries – Flying Dog Brewery being the most popular! But, with this list, I’m going outside the box a bit.
Without further ado, I give you The 20 Best Fall Beers, Ciders and Ales – as recommended by beer/ale/cider aficionados (in alphabetical order)!
