COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pumking is an ode to Pca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Pca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed. Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of the year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow its alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape the Pumking.

If you are a pumpkin lover this is the beer for you. Grab it while you can. I tried last year to save one Bomer for thanks giving. Ya that didn't happen lol. Hope to be able to get more that three bottles. Don't miss it its here and gone and you will not be sorry if you try it but will be sorry if you miss it.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 THE best pumpkin beer out there! Aroma is full of pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, just straight up pumpkin pie fresh out of the oven! The taste was no different! Completely well balanced, with almost no traces of the 8.6 ABV. I get a boner just thinking about this beer! A case of 22oz might not be enough for this year. Perfect!!!
