Big Boss debuts the brewery’s first cans, starting with their pumpkin beer

Big Boss Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale

Big Boss Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale is available for the first time in cans; incidentally the brewery’s first canned offering ever.

Like so many American craft breweries across the United States, glass is dying. Can demand continues to grow. Raleigh’s Big Boss Brewing is ready to make a jump to aluminum this fall, not with their IPA, but with a seasonal.

Big Boss Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale is brewed with fresh pumpkin and a secret blend of spices (no, this isn’t a fried chicken recipe). The brewery touts this release as a beer “that still tastes like beer”. After 10 years this release is still one of Big Boss Brewing’s most requested seasonal releases.

Big Boss Harvest Time is available in 16-ounce cans and draft while supplies

Style: Pumpkin Beer
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Seasonal Release.
Debut: Late September 2018

The Last Barfighter is the Best Video Game Ever [VIDEO]

Take all of your childhood memories of playing Street Fighter at the mall arcade and make them better the only way possible – by adding beer.

Meet The Beercade featuring The Last Barfighter, a 2 button and joystick video game that awards the winner a full pour of beer. A cold refreshing beer is way better than tickets, and definitely more awesome than your name on the high score list. The Beercade is now part of a marketing campaign for North Carolina’s Big Boss Brewing.

The entire machine was hand made from the arcade cabinet to the game itself. Expect to see it at special events in the near future.
