Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville to join Farm to Barrel Series

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville looks to join the brewery’s ongoing Farm to Barrel Series in the coming months.

The California based brewery already has a few different renditions of “Brettaville” in their lineup, including a Tangerine de Brettaville, and a Peach de Brettaville. Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville features roasted heirloom pumpkins and fall spices, aged in oak barrels.

We start by brewing a bright and aromatic farmhouse ale with a blend of twelve “brett” yeast strains. After a vigorous primary fermentation, the beer is racked into wine barrels to mature. In cask, the beer takes on the complex flavors of the oak, and the brettanomyces yeast creates an exotic melange of earthy funk and tropical fruit flavors.

Almanac Pumpkin Pie de Brettaville will be a 375 milliliter bottle offering.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Pumpkin. Oak Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 375ml Bottles, Draft. Limited.
Release: TBA

7.3% ABV

Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin coming this fall

Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin

Last year, Boulevard Brewing released a slightly tart pumpkin beer, Funky Pumpkin. (Imaginee a slightly tart pumpkin beer with spices, and you’re close). Building off of the success of that release will be a new Smokestack Series offering, Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin.

Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin is funkier indeed, as the brewery has allowed the wild yeast Brettanomyces more time to develop.

Never content with brewing “to style,” our brewers’ approach to Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin is far from your standard take on pumpkin spice beers (much like its sibling, Funky Pumpkin). Here theyve given bretranomyces additional the to develop, adding further complexity and character. Subtle pumpkin flavor is accented by traditional spicing in a beer that showcases the hallmark earthy notes of our house wild yeast strain.

Boulevard Funkier Pumpkin will available in September in 750 milliliter bottles. Funky Pumpkin is also on the release calendar again in 2016.

Style: American Wild Ale (w/ Pumpkin, Spices)
Availability: 750ml Bottles, Draft. Limited.
Release: September, 2016

8.5% ABV

The first Smokestack Series release of 2016 is now shipping, Boulevard Chocolate Ale with Raspberry.

Avery Pump[KY]n, Batch 2, returns November 8th

Avery Pump[KY]n

Avery Pump[KY}n, Batch 2, returns to the brewery’s lineup on November 8, 2015.

Avery’s Barrel Aged Series is damn near legendary, featuring sours alongside bourbon imperial stouts. Avery PumKYn, a compliment to the the slightly boozier Avery Rumpkin, is a Kentucky bourbon barrel aged porter with a smattering of fall spices. The 2015 edition’s alcohol by volume is 15%.

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 and draft at the brewery on the 8th, limited distribution found below.

Style: Porter (w/ Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Allspice, Clove, Pumpkin. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles
Arrival: 11/7/15
Distribution: CO, CA, IL, KY, MN, MO, NJ, NY, OK, PA, SC, TX, VA, WI
