As a craft beer drinker you can't escape the furor and excitement that starts to bubble up in August...that's when the first pumpkin beers are released. Everyone, from craft beer lovers to those who normally don't care about craft beer, clamors for the gourdy goodness. In fact, it's to the point that many breweries have to contract out some of their pumpkin beer production or start way ahead of season just to keep up.
Every year there is more and more excitement and the date that the first pumpkin beers drop gets earlier and earlier. What I want to know is, "why?"
Let us know why you love pumpkin beer so much. I'll take all this information and put it together so we can finally answer that age old question, "why is there so much hype around this orange fall-time fruit?" Give us your responses in the comments section below or tweet us at @DrinkCraftBeer with #WhyPumpkinBeer.
If you don't like pumpkin beer, feel free to let us know why as well.
