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
Hops: Sterling, Magnum
Malts: 2 Row Pale, Caramel
Availability: 22oz Bombers. Draft. 12oz Bottles (Tentative)

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.

Style: WItbier (w/ Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Ginger, Cloves)

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.
Mother’s Squashed Chocolate Pumpkin Porter is brewed with cocoa nibs, pumpkin pie spices, locally grown butternut squash and pumpkins and aged in rum barrels.
“Pumpkin beers are one of our favorites styles and we knew we wanted to add another one to our lineup,” said Jeff Schrag, Founder. “Squashed is complex and yet extremely balanced. The flavor really compliments the weather as we move further into the fall season and people enjoy outdoor fall activities like bonfires, barbeques, and camping. We’re excited to get this beer out into the market again for our fans to enjoy.”
Squashed Chocolate Pumpkin Porter is available in 22oz bottles and draft.
7.4% ABV, 28 IBUs
