Pumpkin ciders and Pumpkin Flavored ales!
Everywhere I look someone has a new one for me to try, but which ones are worth your dollar and which aren’t? I have two for you that I can guarantee personally will not let you down! Pumking from Southern Tier Brewing Co. is my first pick as its rich in its flavor, smooth in its bite and not too sweet to enjoy. To many of these fruit ales are loaded with a sweetness that will punch you in the gut later, but Pumking and the folks out at Southern Tier seem to have found that perfect balance to make it just right! Next on my list is local from the boys over in Tampa at Cigar City and its called Good Gourd Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Sitting at an 8.5% ABV, Good Gourd is an impressive feat for the Cigar City brewers as it is not only top two on my list, but it also comes in at number one on Beer Advocates top ranked pumpkin ales out there! To put it simple for you, if you come across Good Gourd, GET IT! That is all.
