Yes, it’s true that summer is just ending – but that isn’t stopping breweries from rolling out their pumpkin beer.

While pumpkin-flavored beer – or actually, pumpkin-flavored “anything” – seems like it should be enjoyed when the weather cools off, retailers are finding that people are grooving on the pumpkin stuff earlier and earlier every year, including beer.

It’s kind of like the malls rolling out Christmas decorations before Halloween. While some people moan and groan about it, most people actually like it.

So if you’re a pumpkin beer fan, you might want to stock up now because stores actually have a hard time keeping it in stock – and often run out in September. (WashingtonCityPaper)
