Heavy Seas Brewing (Baltimore, MD) is ready to ship (or already shipping) The Great Pumpkin & Great’ER Pumpkin. The difference? Great’ER spends time in bourbon.
The Great Pumpkin – 8.5%
Our fall seasonal, The Great Pumpkin is the pumpkin beer you spend the summer looking forward to: a robust amber ale to which we add a blend of pumpkin spices (nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, and allspice) while it’s in the kettle. Dark brown sugar adds color and a little bit of dryness to the spicy ale. Look for it in bottles and on draft.
The Great’ER Pumpkin, the bourbon barrel-aged version of The Great Pumpkin. Our brewers wrangled fresh, just-emptied bourbon barrels from A. Smith Bowman Distillery in Virginia, then fill them with The Great Pumpkin, and let the beer age inside the barrel for three weeks–bringing out vanilla and oak notes. The Great’ER Pumpkin will come out in very limited supply, in bottles and on draft.
