If you want to blow the lid off of your pumpkin ales, crush up some graham crackers, and put it around the rim of your pint glass, like you would salt on a margarita glass.

I love pumpkin ale season for this reason alone.

Hmmm...interesting.


The bar around the corner from me does it with a cinnamon brown sugar mix.

Best pumpkin brew I've ever had. It has a pungent pumpkin smell and it's really smooth. It's from Terrapin, a local Athens brewery, but it is incredible. Sells out within 2 weeks.


Was hoping to get my hands one some of this, but it's doubtful.

Do any places in Baton Rouge carry Terrapin?

Nope, Terrapin doesn't distribute here yet. I had my parents look for it last weekend when they were in Destin, but no luck there either.

The Blue Moon would be good for someone who is scared to try a pumpkin ale. It was okay, but nothing special. It had the spice flavor but not the pumpkin taste I was looking for.

Yes.

It's different. It's got a funky aftertaste. I guess i came in expecting a beer, and i got a cider with pumpkin, which is just a strange flavor.

Overall, not a big fan.

I don't believe i'm a pumpkin beer fan.

I loved my pumpkin beer i brewed, and pumpkinator is simply amazing, but every other pumpkin brew i've had, i don't like.

Wasatch = too much spice not enough pumpkin
Shipyard = same
Brooklyn Post road = same, way too much spice and no pumpkin
Dogfish head = a little better, but not great


Sam adams fatjack = not bad. One of the better pumpkins i had
Pumpkinator = The best pumpkin ale, period.

I have Southern Tier pumpking coming in, and one by Elysian brewing. Hopefully those are good.

Well, it is called a cider for a reason.

Pumking is awesome, but on the pumpkin pie end of the spectrum.

Try to find weyerbacher imperial pumpkin. Thats was my favorite last year.

Post Road might be my least favorite Pumpkin. It's almost sour with a tang. It has little to no pumpkin flavoring.

Had a Southern Tier Pumpking last night



Easily my second favorite pumpkin beer. Finally a pumpkin beer with pumpkin and the right amount of spice. You can actually taste the pumpkin and are not overwhelmed by the spices.

This is easily #2 behind Pumpkinator

Zea actually made one years back that was great. Every pumpkin beer I've had since is almost all spice and no pumpkin flavor. In my attempt to fix this, I have a pumpkin ale fermenting now. Decent amount of pumpkin, and very little spice.

I think i talked to you earlier about my pumpkin ale. I used about 3-4 cans of pumpkin, with 1 packet of pumpkin spice (recipe kit from Austin Homebrew). Came out great, except i did a shitty job carbonating it.

I have a bomber of Jolly Pumpkin pumpkin beer (don't remember the exact name of the beer....sounds French) that I'm saving. Might drink it around Thanksgiving or something. Hope it's good.

I grabbed a bottle last year. I don't really remember too much about it. However, i do recall being very unpleased with it. Because i kept on seeing jolly pumpkin and would wonder, why no pumpkin ales from jolly pumpkin. I tasted it, and i found out why.

However, its been awhile and my beer palate has improved some, so maybe i wasn't ready for it yet, or it is just plain bad.

Good luck.

They are known for sours/farmhouse/wild ales, so that could be part of your dislike for it.

Ah, this was the reason then.

I still can't get myself to really enjoy a sour.
