Reminisce or make new memories at the oldest brewpub in downtown St. Louis. Taste pumpkin paired with fabulous fall flavors of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg that make up Schlafly’s pumpkin ale. Enjoy it with an order of Schlafly’s fries or other menu options. Sit back and savor as the hint of pumpkin pie in this beer adds a touch of sweetness. This fall brew is available in September and October only.

You can almost hear the leaves crunch beneath your feet as if you are enjoying a leisurely hike through the autumn woods with Ferguson Brewing Company’s pecan ale. It is a taste of nature made with real nuts. Sip a 64-ounce growler that never comes to an end with $9 refills. Add a taste of pecan ale, St. Louis pale ale or pumpkin ale for a nice accent to the crisp fall air. Pumpkin ale is available through November 23 only.

Contrary to one of its most popular fall beer names, Urban Chestnut Brewing Company is certainly no myth even though you may feel as if you have stepped into a dream with its array of fall brews. Taste the Harwood Myth which is an English brown porter. Savor an English pale ale or instead order the Oachkatzlschwoaf for Oktoberfest. Enjoy a one- or two-liter growler and never run dry with refills starting at $6.

Step back in time and savor a piece of history while keeping pace with the finest in hometown brew. Handcrafted on the site of the old Falstaff Brewing Company, Six Row Brewing Company knows how to welcome fall with its seasonal beers. Enjoy the hops flavor but don’t leave your sweet tooth behind. Munich malt adds just the right amount of chocolate to make up the seasonal Oktoberfest amber brew. Also try the fruity and floral Killer Whale or locally sweetened Honey Wiezen wheat beer.

Put on your lederhosen and brush up on your German. Trailhead Brewing Company’s Oktoberfest full-bodied lager welcomes fall in German style. It is amber and malty with just the right touch of hops spice flavor. Sip for a preview of an American Thanksgiving with the pumpkin ale or a smooth, unfiltered honey wheat brew available throughout the fall. Sample any beer before you buy and then enjoy the brew with a meal or get a growler to go for picnic.Related: Top Spots for a Picnic in St. Louis
