A seasonal beer is a beer that is typically brewed during or for a particular season, holiday or festival period. Many breweries and microbreweries produce seasonal beers. Seasonal beers may be produced when fresh ingredients are available during various seasons, per climatic conditions during the time of the year, and also as a tradition.Furthermore, seasonal beer is produced based upon seasons, holidays, festivals and events.
Autumn seasonal beers incorporate the use of spices such as cinnamon, pumpkin and nutmeg, which serves to associate the season with the beer’s flavor, or to create a “frame of reference unique to that season”. Pumpkin ale is often brewed as an autumn seasonal beer.
A harvest festival is an annual celebration that occurs around the time of the main harvest of a given region. Harvest festivals typically feature feasting, both family and public, with foods that are drawn from crops that come to maturity around the time of the festival. We here at Tysons Biergarten will have a wide variety of food and beer that incorporate the harvest.
