Pick the Saison with Jalapeno to really spice up your winter night! It might feel cold, but it's hot, hot, hot.
Doylestown Brewing Co.
Aged with cinnamon sticks, try their Cinn’ister Stout beer on the upper level of their tasting room called The Still.

It tastes the way a coffeehouse smells! Try the C.O.B. (coffee,oatmeal,brown), an Imperial English Brown Ale with roasted coffee that includes notes of caramel, brown sugar and toasty graham cracker.
Great Barn Farm to Glass Tap Room
Nova Espero English Old Ale is an award-winning remake on a custom ale requested to be made by the Queen of England in 1852 for the crew on a ship completing a rescue mission in Canada.
Mad Princes Brewing
Grab a strong Scottish ale, the Bruce Wee – Enter the Flagon. A big, malty ale with a Kung Fu kick made from roasted barley to give it body and brown sugar that provides a dose of “molasses-y” goodness.
McCoole’s Red Lion Brewery
Slainte, Guinness lovers! Enjoy this Irish stout, the Cannonball Stout! It is dark, delicious and brewed inside McCoole’s Historic Red Lion Inn.
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company
Try the Neshaminator. This holiday offering is brewed with orange blossom honey, malted wheat and dark Munich malt, a hint of Chocolate malt, and German Hallertau and Tettnanger hops. Prost!
The Proper Brewing Company
Summer may be over, but the sweetness remains with the Prop-er Cherry Stout. Rested on Ecuador cocoa nibs, this ripe brew is blended with chocolate cherry coffee.
Tower Hill Brewery
It’s called Big Dipa and it comes with a punch! Warrior hops give the bittering flavor and Centennial hops give it its aroma and flavor.
Triumph Brewing Company
Bavarian beer lovers began celebrating the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest in 1810 and still do today. Try Triumph’s version of Oktoberfest: a malty, amber, not-very-hoppy German lager.
Vault Brewing Company
Brewed with roasted sweet potatoes, cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg and served on nitro, their Sweet Potato Ale truly is a liquid version of sweet potato pie.
Naked Brewing Co.
It’s not scary, baby, or posh...It’s Ginger’s Spice Wheat Beer, and it’s flavored with pumpkin pie spice and fresh ginger for the fall!
Moss Mill Brewing Company
Lucky for you, the brewery taps a new beer every Friday! Try their popular PA Brut, a play on the Brut IPA style taking over San Francisco. It’s a dry, light-bodied beer with a little bit of sweetness at the end.
