It's the first weekend of fall, and if you're a beer drinker, the cooler weather may give you a taste for heartier brews.Becky Nischik, marketing manager for Town and Country Distributors based in Itasca, visits ABC7 to talk about some seasonal beers made to enjoy right now.

Abita Pecan Harvest Ale

ABV%: 5.0%
STYLE: Ale
BREWERY & ORIGIN: Abita Brewing Company, Louisiana

Pecan Harvest Ale is made with real Louisiana pecans that have been toasted to perfection. That makes it something really special, because most beers with a nutty flavor or aroma aren't made with real nuts. The natural oils from the Louisiana pecans give the ale a light pecan finish and aroma.

BREWERY & ORIGIN: Blue Moon Brewing Co. Golden, CO
COLOR: Amber Brown

In the great tradition of fall seasonals, this rich amber ale is hand crafted with all of the flavors of the season-vine-ripened pumpkin, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. It's the perfect complement to your harvest celebration.

New Belgium Hoptober

STYLE: Ale
BREWERY & ORIGIN: New Belgium Brewing, Ft. Collins, CO

Five hops and four malts make Hoptober Golden Ale a veritable cornucopia of the earth. Pale and wheat malt are mashed with rye and oats to create a medium-bodied ale with a creamy mouth feel.
