Here in Denver, beer with any meal is encouraged, but especially so with dessert. Since it’s fall, it’s a good time to enjoy some seasonal desserts and down a few brews to complement them. With the help of one of our resident home brewers, Will here at FSW, we’ve come up with five desserts you should eat this fall and the beers to enjoy them with.

My dad once caught me hammering a nail into a piece of plywood with a crowbar. Overbearingly quiet, he swiped the tool from my hands and stood over me with his “I’m disappointed” look. While I thought I was in store for a lecture about going through my dad’s tools without permission, 10-year old John was actually about to receive a piece of tell-tale advice from his father. “Use the right tool for the job,” he said, producing a mini hammer from behind his back. And he couldn’t have been more right. This childhood lesson also applies to beer drinking. When you use the right glass, the experience is that much more brewtiful.
After a week of dramatic finishes, walk-off wins and crushing defeats, the the World Series match up has been decided. Will the San Francisco Giants continue their decade of dominance, or will the upstart Kansas City Royals finish their unlikely run with a ring? Only time will tell.
