It is that time of year, pumpkin season. Instead of hitting up a coffee shop for pumpkin spice anything, try out one of these great Central New York pumpkin beers.

It sure seems that year after year that the list of pumpkin-flavored things grows. Some of them get really absurd, like pumpkin spice cheesecake enchiladas. Although that dish sounds just a slight bit intriguing, when will enough be enough? If you're the kind of person who prefers the tried and true fall flavors, then you're also in luck. Pumpkin beer is prevalent and a great way to support local businesses.

There are so many breweries in and around Central New York. The 3-1-5 area code itself actually has over fifty total breweries. While there are many you've most certainly heard of like Saranac, there are a lot of other great hidden gems from one end of Central NY to the other. Another thing we have a lot of in CNY is pumpkin patches. Eighteen of those breweries take advantage of that and celebrate fall using pumpkin in their brewing process.

Some of these breweries choose to go wild and creative with names, like one listed below called 'Oh My, Pumpkin Pie', while others just call their beer something more traditional like 'pumpkin ale'. But, regardless of name, all of the beers will be downright delicious. if you enjoy sitting back and relaxing with a seasonal beer in your hand, this list is so for you.
