The crisp wonderful fall weather is upon us here. Who is brewing what for the colder weather? I'm considering a pumpkin spice ale. Any other ideas?

Yes, pumpkin, stout, porter, a darker lager, ie. OktoberFAST (have one on tap now I brewed end of August), I'm planning on doing a banana beer, ie. banana bread or the Bananas foster beer. Usually more rich, hearty, higher ABV beers to warm you up on a cold evening.

Ambers, Coppers, Stouts, Porters, Holidays are all great for the fall/winter season and a good IPA is a nice thing to have as well!

This is one of my favorites to brew for Thanksgiving time.

Fall and winter calls for brown ales and my annual batch of milk stout.

I'm brewing a chocolate stout than racking over some tart cherries, and since I'll have a fresh yeast cake I'll be trying my hand at utilizing that for an RIS i think.
