Southern Tier Brewing Company Pumpking Ale
bestbeerbuzz edit: Craig! Your contributions are always appreciated! I’ve been looking forward to your review on this one.
Pumpking is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale brewed by Southern Tier Brewing Company since 2007. It is available as a seasonal from August until stock runs out, and only in 22 ounce bottles and 1/6 kegs for those lucky enough to find it on tap.
Pumpking is brewed with two types of malt, two types of hops, pureed pumpkin and ale yeast for an 8.6% ABV and 19 Degrees Plato.
Pairing recommendations for this highly praised masterpiece include a formal Thanksgiving meal and complements a classic homemade pumpkin pie.
Southern Tier makes great beer all around, and I might have to try this one as I wait for my seasonal hombrewed pumpkin ale to mature.
