It's the great pumpkin debate that's sweeping the SouthCoast: pumpkin beer vs. pumpkin cider.

In all honesty, it wasn't until a few years ago that I started enjoying pumpkin anything. Now that fall has arrived, New Englanders are celebrating the crisp autumn season with all the basic trends. From Ugg boots to apple picking, and football to harvest festivals, this truly is a magical time of year that's not too hot and not too cold -- the perfect in-between.

This is also the time of year when pumpkin beers and ciders are customary on every tap on the SouthCoast.

Although I enjoy both, I'd rather sip on a beer than a cider.

I took to social media where curiosity made me ask:

"What would you rather sip on?"

The responses began pouring in (pun intended).

Out of 50 people on the SouthCoast, pumpkin cider received 17 votes while pumpkin beer got a 20 votes. The remaining 13 votes were for neither, followed by "pumpkin is gross" or "I hate pumpkin anything."

Although more people prefer pumpkin beer, pumpkin cider is a close runner-up. Like most categories these days, the crowd is divided.

It's safe to say that no matter what team you are on, beer or cider, almost everyone enjoys that caramel rim sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. It's like a dessert in beverage form.

Drink responsibly, my friends!
