Although the official first day of fall doesn’t happen until September 22nd and the humidity is unrelenting, breweries in the Philadelphia area started releasing their fall beers a little early this year. Although this list doesn’t cover every single release, below is a list of some of the most notable fall beers that released a little early.

Funk Brewing, located just outside of Allentown, debuted a new Saison brewed with Chai spices named Falliage. They describe this beer as “a comforting light amber brew. Toasty and slightly caramelized.” This Saison is only 4.9%. Therefore, it’s a perfect way to combine fall spices with the outdoor Summer weather.

Neshaminy Creek Punkless Dunkel is probably the most well-known beer from this list. This 8.8% pumpkin beer is in their yearly rotation and has the highest abv of these fall beers. Also, if you’re looking to save money, a 4-pack of pounders is the cheapest at the supermarket.

Stable 12 Brewing debuted Oktober-Kolsch this week. This beer is another low ABV fall beer from a Philadelphia-area brewery. As a result, this German Lager is yet another fall beer that can be enjoyed in the Summer heat.

Yards introduced a new Oktoberfest to their lineup. The Unter Dog label features a person in lederhosen with a dog mask, a clear nod to the Philadelphia Eagles’ underdog mask made famous by Chris Long and Lane Johnson of the 2017 Super Bowl-winning team. However, fans can only hope there is a football season this year due to the pandemic.
