Flying Dog The Gourd Standard: Hops Meet Pumpkin

Flying Dog The Gourd Standard

Flying Dog The Gourd Standard, a hoppy pumpkin offering on the horizon from the Frederick, Maryland brewery.

As you can gleen from the label, the base beer is an India pale ale, brewed with pumpkin puree and mix of spices.

I know it’s cheesy, but I feel grate about tonight. We just have to keep in mind that if the clock gets hungry, it will go back four seconds, but the bike can’t can’t stand alone because it’s two-tired. My one friend used to be addicted to soap, but he’s clean now. And whatever the banana wears better be appealing. Seriously, this is going to be the gourd standard at parties.

Flying Dog The Gourd Standard will be available in 12oz bottles. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: IPA (w/ Pumpkin. Spices.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft.

Southern Tier Pumking Takes Aim at 12oz Bottles

Southern Tier Pumking 12oz

The wildly popular Southern Tier Pumking takes aim at 12oz bottles when it returns in the fall (July). One of America’s most popular pumpkin beers might be a bit more manageable when you are drinking alone.

Southern Tier Pumking is nearly 10%, making a 12oz bottle option quite manageable.

The beer typically arrives in July each year, and sells out by Thanksgiving. Late 2014 saw the bottle release of a Southern Tier Rum Aged Pumking.

Style: Pumpkin Beer 
 Sterling, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row Pale, Caramel

Availability: 22oz Bombers.  Draft. 12oz Bottles (Tentative)

Rogue Pumpkin Savior Ale, Spring 2015

Rogue Farms Pumpkin Savior Ale

Rogue Farms had a bountiful pumpkin harvest this year. Some of those pumpkins are used in Rogue Pumpkin Patch Ale. With the excess pumpkins, Rogue frozen the gourds whole, and is creating Pumpkin Savior Ale.

Rogue Pumpkin Savior Ale is a witbier, brewed with fifteen ingredients, including cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, vanilla beans, and cloves.

Created with pumpkins grown at rogue farms in Independence, Oregon. This year we had an abundant harvest that left us with extra pumpkins after we brewer  pumpkin patch ale. So rather than let our precious pumpkins rot in the field we decided to save them by freezing them whole and brewing a spring pumpkin wit.

Rogue Pumpkin Savior Ale will be available of 750ml bottles in Spring, 2015.

Style: WItbier (w/ Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Ginger, Cloves)
Availability: 750ml bottles

Mother's Brewing Squashed Chocolate Pumpkin Porter

Mothers Brewing (Springfield, MO) Squashed Chocolate Pumpkin Porter is back for a second year. What started as an experiment (Thing 1 & Thing 2 Series) prompted Mother’s to promote the beer to seasonal. Another boozy round cometh.
