That said, a lot of what we think of as "pumpkin beer" is really more "pumpkin-pie-spices beer", and that of course can be made perfectly adequately at any time of year, so go nuts.

Still, I'm now spoiled by my local brewery's yearly Dromgoole, which involves taking a cartload of actual freshly-baked pumpkin pies and tossing 'em in during fermentation. Everything else pales in comparison.
Yeah, Buffalo Bill's, my personal favorite and yearly Okami companion beverage, seems to have cut down on actual pumpkin and upped the spice content over the last few years in order to get it out of the door quicker. It's disappointing to say the least.
