NoDa Gordgeous Cans

This year you’ll find NoDa Gordgeous in 16 ounce cans (4 packs) around Labor Day. Draft has already debuted in the tap room for the 2015 season.

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.
Release: TBA

6.7% ABV

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)

9% ABV
