Southern Tier Tropical Blaze
Southern Tier Pumking has already hit shelves again in 2019. In reality, it started hitting shelves in mid-July, alongside the brewery’s pumpkin stout, Warlock. Pumking is easily one of the most unique (and highly debated) pumpkin beer across craft beer since debuting in 2007.
The 9% strong ale is brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, clove, and allspice. Each sip is an over-the-top fall beer that tastes like biting into pumpkin pie (crust included). Much to the chagrin of beer drinkers and their social media hatred of beer seasonal creep, Pumking really is the king one thing – it’s always the first pumpkin beer on shelves every season for the past few years. The brewery has not said if that helps beer sales or not.
In 2015, Pumking also shipped 12-ounce bottles, making the imperial pumpkin ale a little more manageable if you are flying solo.
In 2014, the brewery added Southern Tier Rum Aged Pumking,
Southern Tier Pumking is available in 12-ounce bottles, 22-ounce bottles, and draft through the fall.

Expect Southern Tier Swipe Light in 12-ounce cans and draft starting in March 2019.

Southern Tier Cinnamon Roll has debuted going into November, for those needing a little dessert beer by the fireside.
Dessert-style beers have done quite well for the Lakewood, New York-based brewery. Choklat (featuring Belgian chocolate) Salted Caramel, Thick Mint (echoing the Girl Scout cookie) and the big daddy dessert beer – Creme Brûlée all grace the lineup. In mid-November, tack on a cinnamon bun inspired beer to the lineup.
The base beer features blend of toasted malts, cinnamon, and a touch of lactose milk sugar for a sweet, creamy finish.
In this brew, lightly toasted malts with subtly spicy hops blend into cinnamon avors and creamy lactose sugar. Their coalescence is so uncannily close to fresh baked cinnamon rolls that it was impossible to name this beer anything other than Cinnamon Roll Imperial Ale! Pairs perfectly with eggs benedict at brunch, after dinner, or next to the re for an unforgettable nightcap.
Southern Tier Cinnamon Roll is now available in late-October in 12 and 22-ounce bottles and draft.
