Embrace Your 'Basic' Side With These Local Pumpkin-Flavored Foods

The internet has tried to convince the world that indulging in some of autumn's most iconic traditions means that you may fall into the category of a "basic bitch." We're not sure we agree with that statement, but we do know that a little bit of internet shaming shouldn't stop you from enjoying the ultimate flavors of the season: pumpkin and pumpkin spice. We like it in our lattes, we like it in our ice cream, we like it in our beer — its applications are limitless. We encourage you to embrace your inner "basic" cravings and succumb to all that this city has to offer when it comes to pumpkin-flavored food/drink options. We even made you this pretty little list of places you can find them. Enjoy. You deserve it.

Braxton Brewing Company
Pumpkin Pie Ale 
27 W. Seventh St., Covington, Ky.
In this collaboration with Graeter’s ice cream, the Pumpkin Pie Ale "features notes of pumpkin pie spice, as well as hints of pie crust. Consumers will notice the ale’s bold aroma, which brings about feelings of the fall season, as well as a deep brown color from the pour. The brew is the quintessential ode to pumpkin pie."
