Eat + Drink
As Indian summer fades into the San Franciscso sunset, the cooler weather prompts us to reach for warmer gear and warming beers. We find ourselves bypassing the lighter, summer beer styles and stocking up on Harvest or Fall brews: maltier ales with a tad more alcohol and a bit of spice. And while pumpkin beers generally fall into this category - Almanac Beer Co. and 21st Amendment Brewery offer excellent local choices - we thought we would explore some squash-free beers that both celebrate and pair well with Autumn.

This October marks the end of a long and delicious run for Pépin, who recently began production on his last (and thirteenth!) series, Jacques Pepin: Heart & Soul, filming at the local KQED studios.
