It’s Pumpkin everything season and Delaware has a top ranked pumpkin beer!

You can’t leave the house without running into a new pumpkin product.

But it seems amongst all the pumpkin overload the pumpkin beer has been a staple for years! recently released their Top 20 Pumpkin Beers for Fall 2022.

So how did they decide on who ranked where? Taste and preference.

Delish said their methodology included “Delish staff favorites, regional picks, some faves from restaurant folks, and the best-reviewed pumpkin brews on the internet.”

Dogfish Head place very high this year and it’s no surprise.

Dogfish Head Punkin’ Ale was ranked just outside the Top 10!

Coming in at #15 the annual ale was just narrowed out by Flying Dog The Fear Pumpkin Ale at #14.

Delish describes the beer as “This pumpkin beer is warmed with nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove to create a full-bodied brown ale with plenty of brown sugar flavor. Dogfish Head likes to change up the packaging of Punkin Ale. Last year, the design featured a glow-in-the-dark element, while this year, it’s got sunflowers and a boisterous pumpkin.”

The top spot on the Top 20 Pumpkin Beers for Fall 2022 was Two Roads Roadsmary’s Baby.

Delish said this about the top beer: “Go traditional with this pumpkin ale from Two Roads. It’s aged in rum barrels and has delicious notes of pumpkin, spices, vanilla, oak, and rum.”
