Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today. Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce. Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain. In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

Great tasting beer which appears / tastes to change slightly every year! I believe this was one of the first pumpkin beers I ever tried, and to date, is still my favorite. There are lot of things going on w/ this beer that make it a great try for people of many different tastes. I would recommend this beers as a must try to start out your fall season (every year!)
