It’s Fall and what does that mean? Cooler weather (finally!), wearing flannel shirts, drinking hot coffee and PUMPKIN BEER! 🙂 There are so many pumpkin beers out there so I decided to put a few to the test. Find out what this mama enjoyed (and didn’t enjoy) on my pumpkin drinking adventure.
Blue Moon Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale Coors Brewing Company 5.70% ABV
By far my favorite of the beers I sampled. Very smooth and tasty. I will be drinking more of these! 🙂
Pumpkin Porter Four Peaks Brewing Company 5.00% ABV
An enjoyable light beer and IT IS LOCAL!!! Bonus points. Definitely will be getting this beer again.
Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale Boston Beer Company 5.70% ABV
This beer was easy to drink with just a hint of pumpkin.
Wasatch Black O’Lantern Pumpkin Stout Utah Brewers Cooperative 6.50% ABV
Not my fave but I can drink it. It has a strong aftertaste reminiscent of black licorice (anise).
Pumking Southern Tier Brewing Company 8.60% ABV
Very flavorful but I did not enjoy so much. I was unable to finish this beer…
Shipyard Pumpkinhead Shipyard Bewing Co. 4.70% ABV
This seems to be an overall favorite but was my least favorite that I tasted. Sweet but artificial? I did not like the aftertaste and won’t be purchasing again.
A few more beers that I wanted to try but was unable to find:
Punkin Ale Dogfish Head Brewery
Night Owl Pumpkin Ale Elysian Brewing Company
Ace Hard Pumpkin Cider California Cider Company
Red Hook Out Of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter Redhook Ale Brewery
Do you have a favorite pumpkin beer? Do you agree or disagree with my thoughts on the ones that I sampled? I would love to know…
