I’ve had 2 new pumpkin beers this season and drank a bottle of one other I’ve had before. Thank you

Don't particularly enjoy them. Don't really understand the disdain for them either.

This, pumking does not do much for me, but I typically enjoy a Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela to feel like I am taking in the season.

Me personally = Yuk.
Got a buddy who loves them however.

Has everyone else noticed that there seem to be fewer and fewer pumpkin beers on the shelves every year? I actually saw a guy running around a liquor store frantically looking for a pumpkin beer and all he could come up with was a pumpkin shandy (a combination that quite frankly horrifies me ;) ). Of course, he could have gotten the Sam Adams fall mix pack and gotten a couple of pumpkin beers with that, and I think there might have been some of the DFH pumpkin beer on the shelves. I guess I could have said something, but I was pretty tired and off in my own world. It's only just now that I suddenly realized that I had some potentially relevant information to add to something that was going on around me hours ago. ;)

Still, regardless, not as many pumpkin beers. It seems like it's a fad who's time has come and gone. That said, I hate to see things die out completely, so I'm glad that there remain some mass market examples of this. I do actually like my 2 pumpkin beers per 12er I get in the Sam fall packs each year. That basically satiates my desire for a pumpkin beer. :) I would probably buy Pum-kick with the Cranberry and Pumpkin if I saw it anywhere (Has that been discontinued? It doesn't seem like I've seen any in recent years). It was getting a little much when it seemed like half of the store was pumpkin beers a few years ago from August to November, though.
