10 Pumpkin Beers You're Seeing Before Labor Day and Why
New Belgium Pumpkick
New Belgium partnered with Seattle's Elysian Brewery a few years back on a sour pumpkin ale called Kick and has had a craving for pumpkin ever since.
That beer was brewed with cranberries for a little tartness and aged in oak barrels to produce some punch. This brew skips the oak and keeps its bit to a relatively mellow 6% ABV.That little kick of cranberry juice remains, however, and gets a bit of help from cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and just a bit of lemongrass to complicate somewhat the traditional pumpkin ale recipe. The result is a surprisingly aggressive pumpkin ale that's a joy to drink, but isn't as easygoing as some of its pumpkin contemporaries.
