    From their Facebook Page, "Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale - Our newest addition to our specialty pumpkin beer line-up. Coming September 2014." Sounds pretty tasty!

    I swore off pumpkin beer for the upcoming year, but this looks like a must try. Their Night Owl is really good.

    Oh, two of my least favorite flavors in one beer. I can't wait:rolling_eyes:. Are we sure this isn't a co-brew with Rogue, and will come in a pink bottle?:wink:

    Elysian is the king of pumpkin beers, in my opinion. Stoked for this. I'm seriously considering flying out to their great pumpkin beer fest this October.

    I would imagine it will be part of their pumpkin four pack this year with Night Owl, Dark O' Moon, and The Great Pumpkin!

    I'll grab this for sure. The Great Pumpkin is not only my favorite pumpkin ale, but one of my favorite all time beers. I never miss Dark O' the Moon either.

    This sounds pretty awesome. If anyone has access to Elysian and would like to set up a trade for this ahead of time, drop me a line.

    I had this at Snallygaster last Fall. It's pretty tasty stuff. Wish we got Elysian in VA.

    This sounds delicious. I LOVE pumpkin beers. Pumpkin beers are what got me into craft beer, and exploring what the wonderful world of craft beer has to offer. I would love to get my hands on a bottle or two of this. Does Elysian distro to New York?

    My only reason for trying this would be the hope that the coffee might tame the pumpkin flavor. Have never had Great Pumpkin, but I find Night Owl overbearing and too squashy. I like my punkin subtle.

    Almost a full page of comments and nobody has freaked out about the premature release date/talk of pumpkin beers? Oh hell, here goes. I'm still in gose/Berliner Weisse mode and will be until the first New Mexico freeze. No pumpkin talk till then, k thanks.

    That's fucking crazy, a pumpkin beer that is dropping in Sept. Pumpkin beers should be released in July.

    Just when I said that I wasn't going to buy pumpkin beers, and something like this comes out. Dang it! It'll only be Punkuccino and Pumking. That's it.

    Punkuccino sounds delicious.

    I must say that I cannot quite understand Elysian’s distribution footprint. I can get some Elysian seasonals regularly here in PA (including Night Owl), but I have been searching for the Great Pumpkin for years and I just can’t seem to find even a single bottle.

    I feel like Linus.

    Any wisdom on this.

    I had this on draft last. For pumpkin beer lovers, it is as amazing as it sounds. The coffee is light - nutty and chocolate-like. And it's got a creamy mouthfeel. It's the pumpkin spiced latte God intended.

    This sounds super delicious! Heard it was poured at the Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Fest last year and was a big hit, hence it is now coming out in bottles.....as a MAJOR Pumpkin beer aficionado, I find Elysian beers to be some of the best out there.....this will be their 10th Pumpkin Beer Festival this October 3-4 this year.....thinking of going out to Seattle for it this year! Enjoy!

    My thoughts exactly.

    Out of all new autumnal releases this year, this is the one I'm most excited for.

    Has anyone seen this yet? This sounds like the beer of my girlfriend's dreams. I see a fair share of Elysian stuff where I'm at, but I haven't heard of this being released yet.
