Come celebrate the harvest! Pumpkins were used in early colonial American brewing as a way to supplement expensive imported malt with locally grown and plentiful ingredients. Over 150 pounds of pumpkin are added to each batch creating a beer with a sunset orange-amber hue, pumpkin aroma and a slightly spicy finish from our blend of spices that includes vanilla, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.

On tap at brewpub poured a cloudy orange hue w/ a small white quickly and fully diminishing head and no lacing. Moderate aromas of pumpkin and nutmeg. Taste of pumpkin, with notes of spices: nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. Light sweet initial flavor finish and light lasting spice. Watery texture and lively carbonation. A very drinkable pumpkin beer, flavors are well balanced.
