Pumpkin Ale

Generally brewed and released as a fall seasonal beer, the Pumpkin Ale style dates back to some of the earliest European settlers in America.

Generally brewed with cut pumpkin, pumpkin puree, or just pumpkin flavoring, these beers also usually include pumpkin pie spices - ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The beer itself is usually on the mild side, with a low bitterness and subtle malt backbone that allows the pumpkin and spices to come through.

Generally served cool, 46-54 degrees, in a pint glass or beer mug.
