  As happens every year those Pumpkin beers appear, but now it seems earlier than ever. Good ones, bad ones, ones you could care less about. So that begs the question, why is almost every craft brewery in North America trying their hand at brewing what everyone else is? God help us are they actually competing for "market share" like the big boys? Well if you're so inclined to sample the myriad of beer all brewed with pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla and other thanksgiving spices here's a look a just a few.. I'll wait for "The Great Pumpkin" with Snoopy.
