Good call on Maple Mistress, forgot about that one but that is another one of my favorite pumpkin beers.

Weyerbacher's is really good and so is Schlafly's.  Those are the two I have purchased so far.  Pumking from Southern Tier is about as good as it gets but I haven't seen it yet.  Last year I remember seeing it on shelves throughout the season though so even though most consider it the cream of the crop when it comes to pumpkin beers, it seems like they're able to make enough of it so we don't have to jump through hoops to obtain it.


Elysian makes three or four pumpkin beers.  Most of them were meh but I think The Great Pumpkin is up there with Pumking.  Give that one a shot if you see it.  I also usually buy Punkin from Dogfish Head and Hipp-o-lantern from River Horse.  I remember Triumph having a really good pumpkin beer too if you're in that area.

Maloney's in Matawan said they've already gotten kegs of some pumpkin beers, but they refuse to tap any until Labor Day.

Yeah this aggravates me too.  I feel like every year it gets worse but I remember seeing pumpkin beers on the shelf in late July either last year or the year before.  I have little interest in drinking pumpkin beers during the summer, but I don't want to be left with scraps by the time the fall comes around so I'm left with no choice but to buy all the pumpkin beers I plan on drinking once they come out, and then store them for a month or two until I actually want them.

Yeah I've had a similar experience.  Originally I was only able to buy two bottles and had to ask someone to get it out of the stock room for me, but lately the same store has had four packs on shelves.  Maybe more of it got shipped out here this year or something, or maybe demand has been diluted with many other great beers coming out every year now.

Maloney's in Matawan I think is the best beer bar in the area, it's about 20 minutes east of Starland Ballroom.  Directions
