    I voted more.

    Since last year, I've moved to an area with different distribution, and will be looking to try out a bunch of new ones.

    I will buy NONE. Same as 2014. I just hope I don't accidentally drink any.

    I have a horrible feeling lots of british breweries are going to jump on this bandwagon. May they fall off at high speed.

    I usually buy one sixer of pumpkin beer/year. I'll likely do the same. I can't drink it when it's 90 degrees out though. Get me to mid October and then I'll have one. Maybe I'll just buy a bomber if I find one reasonably priced.

    I will likely buy more (quantity) but less variety.

    Tried to like pumpkin beer last year. Won't be buying any this year.

    So Fall is one of my favorite seasons. As such I love to see Fall beers, Pumpkin beers being one of them. So yes I will buy more. In fact I saved one from last year and have aged it off to see if it's better than the year before.

    Generally not my thing, but I'm sure I will sample a few at friends' houses. Probably not buying any though as there are so many other good fall/winter options for me.

    I tried holding out until what I consider fall but unfortunately some of the pumpkin brews come out so early they are gone by that time. This year I decided to give a go early although the weather just did not seem right. I will probably purchase the same amount this year because this weekend I tried a three pumpkin beers that are supposedly the best out there but left me underwhelmed. I think this year I will stick my favorites (laughs are coming) Pumking (and ba Pumking) and Warlock. Those two along with Harvest Pumpkin seem to fit the bill for what I am looking for in a pumpkin beer.

    I will buy exactly the same amount. None. And I will continue that trend as long as I can.

    I will be sticking to my favorites this year. Nothing beats a cool evening sitting around the fire pit outside drinking a good pumpkin beer. But I refuse to indulge in them until after Labor Day.

    I started this thread so I've been watching the responses. In June I had a beer tasting at my house with 7 people. I had some left over Whole Hog Pumpkin so I included it in the tasting. 5 people had never tasted a pumpkin beer before. All 7 of us gave a positive response to this pumpkin beer in June. I was very surprised.

    None. About 3 years ago I went from loving them to hating them. Feel some just taste artificial and fake.

    Same amount, enough to carry me through the season.

    Scratch that. Same amount, = 0. Just tried Warlock and instantly decided that I'm not buying the bomber. Very thin and feels way too watery. Not getting any "stout" from it.

    I will probably buy about the same amount. A good pumpkin beer can be very rewarding at this time of year (even if it is a bit early), even though the style is not my favorite. I am looking forward to trying Avery's rumpkin and pump(kyn). It's a great time for beer!

    PJ-I agree, the warlock is a very watery and thing stout, but I still love it. Might be my favorite pumpkin beer, but not a great stout. Make sense?
