The Season's Best Beers: can you say "Leaf Pile"?!?

From Time Out New York - GHBC's Leaf Pile is one of "the season's best beers":

"Dominating liquor store shelves and taps throughout the season, pumpkin ale is like the craft-beer world’s candy corn: an easy shorthand for fall flavors that usually offers little beyond sickly sweetness. Thankfully, this year’s crop includes a few selections that buck the trend. Long Island newcomer Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. has aced its first autumn seasonal—the superbly balanced Leaf Pile (available at Pacific Standard, 82 Fourth Ave between Bergen St and St. Marks Ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn; 212-675-2009; $6). Fresh, whole spices like nutmeg and vanilla pods provide an enticing whiff of pumpkin pie, but a strong malt backbone and a subtle hit of bitter hops rescue the brew from tasting too sugary."

Like you didn't already know that....

Get it while it lasts. Next year is a long way away!
