One of the largest components of Tahoe’s nightlife is the mix of countless breweries, bars and restaurants that offer unique drinks difficult to find outside the basin. In our Drink of the Week segment, we’ll showcase one type of beer, wine, cocktail — you name it — to try during your stay in the region.

This week’s drink is Alibi Ale Works’ Pumpkin Pie Bier, a festive amber ale that settles in at 5.4 percent ABV.

Made with pure Tahoe water (as all Alibi libations are), the easy-drinking beer is true to its name and tastes just like the dessert — so basic girls are sure to have a feast with this beverage.

According to Alibi’s description, the Pumpkin Pie Bier is “a malty, lactose-infused amber ale” that is “first fermented cool with our German ale yeast, then totally transformed by conditioning it with loads of pumpkin puree, graham crackers, vanilla beans and just a touch of classic spices. The result is liquid pumpkin pie bliss.”

It’s not hoppy, and truly tastes like fall in a glass with the blend of graham cracker and pumpkin flavors.

Alibi Ale Works has two taprooms: Incline Village and Truckee. Swing by and grab your pint of Pumpkin Pie Bier to celebrate the season while supplies last.

The Incline Village taproom is located at 204 E Enterprise St., and the Truckee public house is found at 10069 Bridge St.
