Unique Pumpkin Beers

Pumpkin beers have become the norm from American brewers this time of year. Thanks to their popularity, brewers are coming up with unique ways to present their pumpkin brews.

The folks at Star Hill Brewery in Virginia have added a pumpkin mash to a traditional English-style Brown Porter. The brewer says that “light spicing allows the subtle flavors of pumpkin and roasty porter to shine through”.

And in 6 and 12 packs we’ve got  Pumpkick. This brew from New Belgium Brewing Co offers a tart twist on pumpkin beer, with the addition of cranberries and lemongrass, to the usual cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.

Dogfishead gives their Punkin Ale a kick, weighing in at 7.0 ABV, much heavier than your average pumpkin beer. Punkin Ale is Dogfish’s most popular seasonal, and something of a flagship beer, having been brewed by their founder prior to the breweries inception.

For a more traditional pumpkin beer try Sarnac’s Pumpkin Ale. Spiced with everything you’d expect – cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger. At 3,000 pumpkins per brew, Sarnac is confident “you’ll think you just drank Fall.”
