The world of craft beer is rooted in creativity, and one of the ways that small and independent brewers showcase that creativity is through the creation of seasonal beers. Seasonal beers are a unique, fun way to capture the essence of a particular season. With more than 6,000 operating breweries in the United States, it can be difficult for beer lovers to stay up to date on the types of seasonal beers breweries are producing. We offer you a peek into new releases, and the return of some of your favorites, to help you stay on top of the world of seasonal beers.

Complete Coverage of the Many Types of Seasonal Beers

Our editors and contributors work hard to stay on top of the many types of seasonal beers that small and independent breweries produce. The different types of seasonal beers bring along a whole new world of tastes, and we work diligently to make sure that everyone who is interested knows about the seasonal beers that are currently on the market.

Highlighting Seasonal Beers 

Seasonal beers adopt flavors and tastes from the seasons we experience. There are pumpkin beers for fall, citrus beers for summer, even floral notes for spring. Granted, many flavors may be carried by brands year-round, but when we come across a true stand-out seasonal beer, you’ll hear about it. The toughest part about discovering enticing seasonal beers goes hand in hand with what makes the process so exciting, and that’s the fact that they usually don’t stick around for long. You can trust us to keep you in the know, so you can focus on grabbing those seasonal beers to enjoy while they last, before returning to your favorites.

Finding the Perfect Match for your Seasonal Beer

Not unlike the food you eat, the beer that you drink changes with the season, as small brewers often enjoy incorporating fresh, seasonally varying ingredients as they become more easily available with the changing seasons. Finding the perfect meal to pair with your beer can be intimidating if you’re new to pairing, and that is a large part of the reason why we work hard to find those pairings for you. Everyone has a different palate, but consider our team to be your personal beer experts, capable of pointing you in the direction of the perfect pairing. Get started by checking out our Beer and Food Pairing Chart on CraftBeer.com.
