DuClaw Brewing Co. | 31 Pumpkin Spiced LagerOctober 26, 2021 | Jereme Zimmerman
If you think you’ve had enough pumpkin beers this fall, hold your headless horsemen. This Halloween-themed Pumpkin Spiced Lager from Maryland-based DuClaw Brewing Co. isn’t just for pumpkin beer aficionados. Although it has the traditional seasonal flavorings (pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg), they don’t overwhelm the Munich Dunkel foundation this beer is built on.
4 Noses Brewing Co. | Pump Action Imperial Pumpkin AleSeptember 21, 2021 | Darren Cockrell
Somebody call Green Day and tell them that September is ending. Autumn is officially here, so it’s time to don your sweater, ditch the Pilsners and prepare your palate for Stout season. And, as nature changes her hues, perhaps the most fittingly transitionary beer is the humble pumpkin beer: smooth, sweet, spiced and full of that guilty pleasure that we crave this time of year.
Brewery Vivant | Pumpkin TartSeptember 16, 2019 | Jack Raymond
Buckle up for spooky season. Ghosts and ghouls, sweaters and chai, crunchy leaves under your feet. You know the drill.
For the beer world, this time of year bears one of the industry’s most polarizing styles: Pumpkin Ale. To some, they’re as comforting and scrumptious as a slice of pie. To the rest, they taste like a scarecrow farted in their snifter. It seems the trick to making a successful pumpkin beer is using the gourd in pure form or in conjunction with other styles/ingredients. With Pumpkin Tart, a blended Farmhouse Ale brewed with real pumpkin and spices, Brewery Vivant checks both these boxes.

Maine’s Shipyard Brewing Company wants you to call it a comeback. The brewery has a bold goal for its seasonal, 20-year-old pumpkin beer: Grow sales, despite consumers experiencing pumpkin burnout. (Maple, right? That’s the new, trendy flavor of fall 2017?) Read More
Cloudburst Brewing | Remember the Maine Smoked Pumpkin PorterOctober 19, 2016 | Katelyn Pelak
As our own writers have demonstrated, pumpkin beers can be a divisive topic. But despite the controversy attached to this particular category of beer, West Seattle’s beloved beer bar and bottle shop The Beer Junction has devoted an entire week to celebrating this type of beverage with an event titled Pumpkin Junction 2016. This event features 30 taps devoted solely to pumpkin beers and ciders for eight straight days (Oct. 15-23). I attended the Pumpkin Junction on opening day and chose Cloudburst Brewing’s Remember the Maine Smoked Pumpkin Porter as my inaugural pumpkin beer for the season. The Beer Junction’s promise of pumpkin did not disappoint.
