Pumpkins are for water pipe making, not making beer.

fark you! Pumpkin pie, coffee, ice cream and beer are all awesome.

envirovore: Not a huge fan of Pumpkin beers, but Southern Tier's Pumpking is pretty damn good. Far better than DogfishHead's.


Pumking is far better than many of the other beer mentioned in the article. Glad there's others who feel the same.

You are not alone, good sir.  In my opinion, Pumpking is *the* pumpkin beer.  Dogfish can eat a dick.

It may not be the best, but it's pretty tasty and priced right... you know.. for grilling and stuff.

WhiskeySticks: Pumpkins are for water pipe making, not making beer.


I can get behind that... well.. I dont smoke anything anymore... but Pumpkins are also good for making jockey boxes...i.e. portable beer faucets.

hollow out the pumpkin like a jack-o-latern, bit in stead of cutting a face out, you drill out a 3/4" hole in the front for the beer faucet and a pass through beer line/ drainage hole in the back, bottom of the pumpkin.

coil your beer line up in side the pumpkin, attach to faucet, fill pumpkin up with ice... viola! Party pumpkin!

Polish Hussar: There's a place called Bastone by me that makes a great pumpkin porter.  I'm really hoping that they brew a batch of it this year.  Ichabod from New Holland is also a tasty pumpkin beer.


Too many deep vee's for me to enjoy that place.

/the beer is excellent tho

SlothB77: Before people lose their shiat,

Cisco Brewers Pumple Drumkin Spiced Ale, Bluepoint Pumpkin Ale, Southern Tier Pumking, Harpoon UFO Pumpkin, Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Hoppin' Frog Double Pumpkin, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, Cambridge Brewing Company Great Pumpkin Ale, Ithaca Brewing Country Pumpkin, Shipyard Brewing Pumpkinhead, Smuttynose Brewing Pumpkin Ale, Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin, Jack-O-Traveler Shandy, Wolaver's Pumpkin Ale, Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale, and Fisherman's Imperial Pumpkin Stout

it looks like they stayed regionally focused in the Northeast.  Fine, out of that limited selection, the top six they chose probably weren't horrible choices.

I think the Weyerbacher and Southern Tier are both excellent.  I have been meaning to try the Cigar City Good Gourd.  The Schlafly Pumpkin seasonal is also quite good.


Very regional selection as noted. The Dogfish Punkin is pretty good but there are great Mid-West and Western breweries who make damn good pumpkin / Octoberfest style beers. Most recent one I tried was the Whole Hog Pumpkin Ale from Stevens Point Brewery. Damn good!

/If ya like that sort of stuff!
//continue the beer snobbery!

I'm going to try a pumpkin beer someday .Although being a veteran beer drinker I should know better . I really don't expect much of it as I have tried many of those fruity beers . Thankfully I've never bought a six pack of any of them .

Hahaha - Shipyard Pumpkinhead is an institution up here. Not surprising the Boston beer snobs put it at the bottom of their list. Boston sucks.

It's not pumpkin beer. It's regular beer that's had a hit of pumpkin pie spice added, and it's disgusting.

I like Shipyard Pumpkin head, ice cold, with a rimmah.

Pumpkin pie, bread, cheesecake, latte, yum. I'm drawing the line at beer, though.

I thought pumpkin was what West Virginians did. What's that have to do with fall holidays?

ghall3: I don' trust their list as they say Southern Tier is the worst of all they tried. Easily the best.


THIS!

It's too bad that this fine beer is no more:

I would argue that Shipyard's not actually a beer. It's more of a  "Malt beverage with pumpkin spice added"

I really don't dig pumpkin anything (that's right pie Nazi's - suck it), but Rogue's pumpkin patch ale is the BOMB.

But honestly, Rogue has yet to put out anything that I haven't loved. Gotta give my home state credit for making some tasty, tasty beers.
