Forget the pumpkin-spice latte for now -- at least the Starbucks iteration. There are so many other delicious, spiced, and yes, sometimes, pumpkin-flavored beverages to enjoy as the days get colder and shorter. We thought you guys could help us discover some more at places around St. Louis, whether it be a craft beer, apple cider or who knows what else.

What's your favorite brew? | Jennifer Silverberg

Scratch what we said last week -- it really does feel like fall. Pumpkin beers are everywhere, the more exciting sibling of the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte. With the amount of craft breweries in town, we also have an unprecedented number of pumpkin beers. You gave us some great nominations for lesser-known brews. So what'll it be? Should we check out Charleville Brewing, Crown Valley, Ferguson Brewing or Square One?

Ahh, fall. | Jennifer Silverberg

It's pumpkin beer season, even if it's not officially fall yet. Many of the autumn brews hit shelves back in August -- mostly to help with the sheer volume the public demands -- but we're just now getting into it. You know the big ones: O'Fallon Brewery's Pumpkin Beer and the Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. But who else should we try?

Is there such a thing as an overrated bloody mary? We don't think so, but we want to know where we can get a top-notch, vodka-fueled beverage early in the morning. Last year, we named the bloody mary at the Famous Bar (5213 Chippewa; 314-832-2211) the best in town -- it's got bacon-infused vodka and a quail egg as a garnish. Rooster, Cafe Eau and Barrister's are other favorites.

St. Louis is a barbecue town -- we're a city full of meat-eaters. But that doesn't mean there isn't a good veggie burger to be had. Whether you're an herbivore, omnivore or carnivore, you can enjoy a patty made of something other than beef. So, what's the restaurant that should get more love for its veggie burger?

Our latest on the countdown of Gut Check's 100 favorite dishes was the "burger" at vegetarian and whiskey restaurant Small Batch Whiskey & Fare (3001 Locust Street; 314-380-2040). It's made of a corn fritter and topped with Chihuahua cheese, guacamole, black bean salsa and rooster sauce. That got us thinking -- there have to be other delicious veggie burgers that even us omnivores can enjoy.
