Southern Tier Pumking has been back on shelves since mid-July

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,

Peppers & Bourbon: Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls returns on Valentine’s

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls,  a small batch release series returns to spotlight on Valentine’s Day.

Truly a beer name you won’t forget, with a flavor you won’t forget, Turtles on Pterodactyls is first and foremost in imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels. When the beer was first released 4 years ago, that’s exactly what it was. Now there’s more turtle and more Pterodactyl. Birdsong has added cinnamon, coffee from Central Coffee Company, cocoa nibs, and serrano peppers into the recipe.

One day, friendly Dino turtles were caught in a volcanic corruption – the dangers time to be slow and steady. Fortunately, the vigilant Pterodactyl Rescue Squad noticed just in time! The dactyls swoops down with a thunderous call! And hitched the turtles to the rescue vests. Hot lava covered the earth but the turtle dudes were safe and sound. Want to be a pterodactyl? Harness their brave and gentle spirits but sharing this beer with a dinosaur loving friend. Cowabunga!

Birdsong Turtles on Pterodactyls is a part of the brewery’s Take Flight Series. 16-ounce cans are available in the taproom when it opens on February 14th.

Himalayan inspired Great Divide Chai Yeti makes another fall appearance

Great Divide Chai Yeti

Great Divide Chai Yeti a new variation on the brewery’s widely popular imperial stout is returning for another fall. 

“Yeti” is synonymous in the beer world with a big, highly rated imperial stout. Variants include Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti, Espresso Yeti, Oak Aged Yeti, and Oatmeal Yeti. Last fall, the brewery released Velvet Yeti, a nitrogen infused edition. Now, Yeti is spending some time with a few exotic spices.

Great Divide Chai Yeti is brewed with a plethora of chai spices, including cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla. The brewery states this beer is a nod to Yeti’s home region of the Himalayas.

Our beloved Yeti is going back to its roots with this Himalayan-inspired variation. Traditional Chai spices of cinnamon, green cardamom, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg, and vanilla blend seemlessly with Yeti’s rich, roasted malt backbone for a spicy beast fit to tackle Everest.

Great Divide Chai Yeti is a 22-ounce bottle and draft release, available now through December 2018.

Style: Imperial Stout (Cinnamon. Green Cardamom. Black Pepper. Ginger. Nutmeg. Vanilla.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft

Pumpkin pie soaked in rum. Avery’s massive ‘Rumpkin’ returns

Avery Rumpkin Halloween 2016

One of the biggest pumpkin beers out there, Avery Rumpkin has returned again ahead of fall 2018.

“A pumpkin pie soaked in rum.” That was the general idea when creating the Avery Rumpkin recipe. Besides pumpkin, Avery Rumpkin is brewed with nutmeg, allspice, ginger, and cinnamon, then aged in rum barrels.

Rum barrels have been a big leaking issue for Avery in the past. If a barrel leaks, you beer killing oxygen getting in, or other off-flavors introduced into the beer. Over the past 7 years, the brewery has lost between 30% & 40% of the batches. To fix this issue, the brewery has flown in professional coopers in the past from France to restore the rum barrels before Rumpkin rested in the wood.

The 2018 edition of Avery Rumpkin debuts on August 20th.

Style: Pumpkin Beer (Nutmeg. Allspice. Ginger. Cinnamon. Barrel Aged. Rum.)
Availability: 12oz bottles
Latest Return: August 2018

16.9% ABV
