Cigar City Barrel Ages Pumpkin Favorite

If you read far, far back in Beer Street Journal’s tweets (to Barrel Aged Hunahpu release weekend) you will see a few mentions of the above beer. Charlie Meers (formerly of the brewery) gave us a taste of a new breed of pumpkin beer out of Tampa- Good Gourd Almighty. ┬áThe seasonal pumpkin release aged in rum. I’m going out on a limb and saying – if this release is anything like the test batches, be ready for a mouthgasm.

This high-gravity gob of gourd-y goodness incorporates pumpkin in the mashing process and then gets wicked with the spices of Ceylon cinnamon, Jamaican allspice, Zanzabar cloves and nutmeg.

Style: Pumpkin Beer (w/ Cloves, Cinnamon, Allspice. Barrel Aged)
