This Sunday, September 22nd, Avery’s Rumpkin returns. The brewery ages their pumpkin ale in rum barrels, and the result is a fall symphony in a hard to find bottle.
We wondered what would happen if a monstrous pumpkin ale, plump full of spicy gourdiness, were aged in fine fresh rum barrels to add suggestions of delicate oak and candied molasses. Rumpkin is what happened!
This first member of the Annual Barrel-Aged Series (along with Uncle Jacob’s Stout) is brewed with organic pumpkins and spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.
The release party is at the Boulder, Colorado brewery. Each 12oz bottles is $12 dollars. 1 case max per person. That’s $288 dollars for those who are counting. There will be a Rumpkin Raffle Benefiting the Foothills Flood Relief Fund. Party starts at 5pm MDT.
Style: Pumpkin Beer (Barrel Aged. Rum)

Thanks to this new Troegs label, Metallica’s Master of Puppets is stuck in my head. (Perfectly ok with that.) Hershey Pennsylvania’s Troegs Brewery will bottle a gourd offering in October.
Master of Pumpkins uses Pennsylvania pumpkins grown just a few miles for the brewery. Take those and add a few pie spices and autumn is starting to take shape. Don’t think this is starting to sound like just any pumpkin beer. This master uses a French saison yeast, for a crazy flavor change.
Troegs says this brew boasts flavors of vanilla, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and honey. To be bottled in October, 2013.
Style: Pumpkin Beer
Availability: 750 ml bottles
Arrival: October, 2013
