SEASONAL RETURN: Post Road Pumpkin

You wouldn’t know it immediately by the label, but Post Road Pumpkin is brewed by Brooklyn Brewing Company (Brooklyn, New York).  Post Road Pumpkin is the latest in pumpkin beers to hit shelves for the season.

Commerical Description:

Early American Colonialists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing ale, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful, and nutritious.  Blended with barley malt, pumpkins became a commonly used beer ingredient.  Post Road Pumpkin Ale brings back this tasty tradition.  Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center, and crisp finish.
