Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale

Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale is a clear amber color, well-carbonated, and produces a creamy head. The complex estery aromas are due no doubt to the yeast strain used. This medium-bodied brew offers a full mouth-feel along with an overall malty flavor with just hints of any pumpkin in its ingredient list.

Flavor Profile is Sweet and Spicy.  Pairs well with beef dishes and seasonal soups.

DogFish Punkin Ale for Fall

A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. Punkin Ale is brewed with pumpkin meat, organic brown sugar and spices. This is the perfect beer to warm-up with, as the season cools.

Punkin Ale is named after a locally-famous and seriously off-centered event in southern Delaware.

In fact, Punkin Ale made it's debut as it claimed First Prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest. Punkin Chunkin has grown in size and scale with pumpkins now being hurled more than 4,000 feet through the air! 

It is released right around September first each year. When you find it, grab some extra because it's usually gone by Thanksgiving.
