Autumn is upon us, and there’s very few things that go better with falling leaves and crisp air than a finely brewed and refreshing craft beer. With that in mind, the team here at Goliath has had themselves a sit-down and a few long-winded conversations so as to cultivate a list containing 10 of the finest, freshest and intimately brewed craft beers money can buy. We’ve aimed to have a wide variety of brews on this list, including lagers, pilsners, stouts, porters and IPAs (India Pale Ale), or in other words, a whole mess of delicious and frothy drinks ready for ingestion. We feel inclined to include that some of these are regional, and we’re deeply sorry if we incite a craving in you that can’t be satisfied due to geographical limitations; if that’s the case, sound off about your location in the comments and we’ll be sure to respond with a gorgeous craft beer local to your area. But without further ado, here are 10 great craft Beers to try this autumn.
10. Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter (Funky Buddha Brewery)
A young woman from a very famous play once asked “What’s in a name?,” so as to suggest that the defining term for an object is irrelevant. With all respect to Juliet, we’re willing to bet that she never got her hands on a bottle of Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, the gloriously flavor-crowded microbrew from Funky Buddha Brewery in Boca Raton, Florida. With a name that describes exactly what’s going on in the beer (it is indeed a coffee porter with strong maple and bacon overtones, two flavors that anyone whose ever eaten breakfast knows go really well together), the Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is the signature ale of this small but much-loved brewery (they have two locations in the state of Florida, and both are consistently cited as having some of the best beer in the state). With a creamy texture consistent with what you’d expect from a porter, this maple infused brew is sure to leave you with a hankering for some pancakes.
