A great seasonal is about get a little better, thanks to some time spent in oak. Saint Arnold Bourbon Pumpkinator is coming this fall.
The brewery’s seasonal, single batch, pumpkin beer has a cult following among their fan base. It got its start as the ninth release the brewery’s Divine Reserve Series. The brewing team’s pumpkin beer approach is an imperial pumpkin stout, brewed with black and caramel malts, plus pumpkin, molasses, brown sugar, and spices. This “pie in a bottle” offering is the most expensive beer Saint Arnold has brewed.
In 2017, the Houston, Texas brewery is kicking the seasonal up a notch, with Saint Arnold Bourbon Pumpkinator.
As Bishop of Metz, Saint Arnold spent his life warning of the dangers of drinking water and extolling the virtues of beer. During his funeral, his pallbearers stopped to quench their thirst, but they only had one mug to share among them. Then a miracle happened. The mug never ran dry, and all the mourners we satisfied.
Saint Arnold has begun teasing the release of this barrel-aged offering, but no debut date has been set.
Ed note: Bottle size has been changed to 12oz, instead of 22oz as previously reported.
