Fall is officially here to stay, and if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate then you’re in luck because today is Drink Beer Day! Since beer and fall happen to be two of my favorite things I thought what better way to celebrate than with Pumpkin Ale Chili, and boy am I glad that I did. Keep on reading to get the chili recipe for yourself.
Not going lie, I was more than a bit hesitant about concocting a pumpkin chili with beer as the base instead of tomato juice, but it turned out beautifully. The rich flavor from the Pumpkin Ale embodies the chili with a robust flavor, while the pumpkin puree helps out balance out the spice of the chili seasoning(s).
Speaking of spice, this chili is one of the spicier things I’ve made. Cause of that I’d recommend enjoying a Pale Lager that cools and quenches while enjoying a bowl (or two) of chili. A lighter Lager will celebrate the powerful combination of ingredients with a refreshing dryness that is clean tasting and crisp.
