NEW RELEASE: Jolly Pumpkin La Parcela

La Parcela No. 1 Pumpkin Ale by Jolly Pumpkin (Dexter, MI) was first brewed in 2008 and released only at the brewery.  2010 sees an expanded release for this fall seasonal.  It, like all of Jolly Pumpkin’s beers is aged in oak.  Ironically this is the brewery’s first pumpkin ale.  30 lbs of pumpkin were used per 310 gallons of beer.  The beer is also bottle conditioned.
