Go for the gourd! Yes, there's pumpkin beer to be had. Of course, these craft brews are seasonal so you'll be able to crack open a cold come October. Wen Lie!! Pumpkin beers •Pumking Southern Tier Brewing Company, Lakewood, N.Y. 9 percent ABV. Pumpkin pie aroma, pumpkin pie spices mix with malt in this sweet seasonal. •Punkin' Ale, Dogfish Head Brewing Company, Milton, Del. 7 percent ABV. A beautiful brown ale with hints of nutmeg and cinnamon, but the spice is much quieter than in most pumpkin brews. •Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Easton, Pa. $10.99 a four-pack. Big pumpkin pie spice aromas - cinnamon, nutmeg - and the taste mirrors the aroma.
