An Ode to the Pumpkin

A few weeks ago, I found myself sitting at the Dogfish Head Alehouse, enjoying copious amounts of their recently-released 2012 Punkin ale. As usual, I was not disappointed. Why would I be? The spices – hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove – were present, as was the malty sweetness that gives it the ever so popular pumpkin pie effect. I was mostly excited for the release of the new Dogfish Head beer; but I soon realized that this could be the start of a cascading effect from hundreds of breweries throughout the U.S. The pumpkin beer craze of 2012 had begun. As a matter of fact, a few other breweries were already getting their stuff on the market (Blue Moon, Shipyard, etc.). But I am always more interested in the tried and true or unknowns. I’m excited for Southern Tier’s Pumpking, Heavy Sea’s The Great Pumpkin, Weyerbacher’s Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Shipyard’s Smashed Pumpkin, and New Holland’s Ichabod Ale.
