Jason Kessler, yes the Heart Attack and Kessler Report dude, found us this outrageous dessert confection we’re pegging as the perfect fall brunch. Thanks, man!

We’re already in the thick of fall and that means that anything and everything should be pumpkin-flavored. You might be down with pumpkin spice lattes, but I think pumpkin ale is a much better pick-me-up. Since I can’t drink beer in the morning without getting the stink eye from my neighbors, I just throw it into my cinnamon rolls, thanks to this recipe from Jess DiBona, pastry chef at San Diego bourbon baron Barleymash. You can use any pumpkin beer you’d like, but it’s wise to choose from this list of the best pumpkin brews to try right now. -Jason
