COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s that season again, time for giving thanks, eating lots, and pumpkin beer! We made this batch of pumpkin ale with about 75 pounds of pumpkins that we chopped up and roasted ourselves, in addition to pumpkin pie spice to add to the aroma and flavor. This beer has a medium body and a low hopping to let the pumpkins to shine through.
