To me pumpkin in beer is the equivalent to pineapple on pizza, it has no business being in there.  I know it's just how I feel, some people like it, that's fine.  I find it kinda gross.

I agree with the Germans. Don't put shiat like that in your beer. Grain, hops, yeast, and water and no more.

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

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

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!

ghall3: SlothB77: 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.

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

For an even crazier time mix half a pint of their Creme Brulee (sp?) with Pumking


Oh dude, the Creme Brulee is excellent!  And something like 10% - not a joke beer at all.

I don't really like flavored beer, but I love fall SO much that I will absolutely get one pumpkin beer at some point, as well as a pumpkin spice latte from starbucks.  The reminder that fall is coming that is implied by those flavors makes me very happy.

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

I"m drinking the Sam adams from a variety pack and I like it. But I only have one at a time.

Worst beer I ever had was their Little white Rye. Flavored with Sage and just nasty to drink. But I'd crock pot cook chicken with it.

Tunacrab: ... It was made as a necessity, not by choice... the settlers had little else to brew with in those times.


You could say the same thing about the hops in an IPA; they were only added as a preservative. People develop a taste for the strangest things.
Semi-related, Yard's makes a historical brew that replaces malt with molasses and hops with spruce tips. You brew with what you have, and sometimes you wind up enjoying it.

should be "best pumpkin beers you can easily get in the northeast, and specifically around boston" but yeah, sure. People around here *love* this stuff, and i just don't understand it.

Pumpkin beer is garbage. It was made as a necessity, not by choice... the settlers had little else to brew with in those times. The stuff you buy today is not true pumpkin beer. It is pumpkin flavored beer that 9 times out of 10 testes like perfumey pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin beer is stupid.

About the only thing that makes beer better is coffee, and even then it's only in a stout. Outside of that please don't put stuff in my beer.
