Avery Rumpkin, and now PumKYn

Avery PumpKYn

Avery Brewing’s rum barrel aged pumpkin beer, Rumpkin, is slated to return on September 28th. It looks like that isn’t the only barrel aged pumpkin beer from Avery this year.

Avery’s Barrel Aged Series is damn near legendary, featuring sours alongside bourbon imperial stouts. Avery PumKYn looks to join that line up, a Kentucky bourbon barrel aged porter with a smattering of fall spices.

What’s in a name? Sometimes the simplest can be the most descriptive, and in this case, derisive and divisive! After much internal debate (ad nauseum! Bourb[KY]n, anyone?), we decided a single letter change was the best way to embody the bourbon barrel-aging that adds layers of complexity to an already exquisitely spiced pumpkin porter.

Avery PumKYn will be available in 12oz bottles.

Style: Porter (w/ Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Allspice, Clove, Pumpkin. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Arrival: TBA

16.25% ABV

Bourbon & Pumpkin: Heavy Seas Great’ER Pumpkin 2014

Heavy Seas Great'er Pumpkin

Heavy Seas (Baltimore, MD) Great’ER Pumpkin returns to shelves in a few weeks, to all 18 states to which the brewery currently ships.

A few years ago (more than 4 maybe?) Hugh Sisson gave us a taste of his bourbon barrel aged pumpkin beer he was trying to perfect. Instantly we knew it was the start of a great seasonal release. From the Mutiny Fleet, to the new Uncharted Waters Series, Great’ER Pumpkin has gained popularity with each release.

Heavy Seas Great’ER Pumpkin will be available starting in September, through October. Or… however fast it sells out. 22oz bombers, and draft.

Style: Pumpkin Beer (Barrel Aged, Bourbon)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft. Firkins
Arrival: September, 2014

10% ABV

Meet Terrapin Imperial Pumpkin Porter [VIDEO]

Terrapin Beer Co. (Athens, GA) is ready to ship their 3rd release in the Special Reserve Series, Imperial Pumpkin Porter.

A departure from the brewery’s other pumpkin offering, Pumpkinfest, Imperial Pumpkin Porter starts with a porter beer as a base. From there, the beer is then nuanced with a plethora of spices – nutmeg, clove, ginger, and of course, pumpkin. The result is what “Spike” calls, luscious.

Terrapin Imperial Pumpkin Porter follows inaugural release White Chocolate Moo-Hoo, and Cinnamon Roll’d W-n-B. In the video above, Spike discloses the next two offerings, MooHoo-ciato (chocolate milk porter with coffee), and French Toast Wake n Bake. (Think breakfast.) Those two will round out the Special Reserve Series in 2014.

There are about 10,000 bottles of Imperial Pumpkin Porter headed into the wild. Be on the lookout starting this week.

Style: Imperial Porter (w/ Pumpkin, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Allspice, Ginger)
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft. Very Limited

9.2% ABV
