Pumpkin beers tend to be a divisive topic within the brewing intelligentsia – some tolerate them, some would rather drink sun-warmed clam juice – but there’s very little argument that this perennial offering from rising Gilbert brewer Desert Monks is one of the finest versions in America. Winner of the silver medal in the pumpkin beer category at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival – one of only three Arizona breweries to medal that year – the spicy, medium-bodied sipper also pulled gold and bronze at the 2022 and 2023 Arizona Craft Beer Awards, respectively, in the Specialty beer category. Grab a four-pack and make it one of your T-Day traditions.
