Himalayan inspired Great Divide Chai Yeti makes another fall appearance

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.

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

Pumpkin meets habanero in New Belgium Atomic Pumpkin
Looking to make fall a little more spicy for a second time is New Belgium Atomic Pumpkin. A pumpkin beer that’s just a little different from the coming onslaught of pumpkin-themed everything.
Now, not every pumpkin beer is the same. Especially if it’s brewed with habanero peppers. New Belgium Atomic Pumpkin starts sweet, with a touch of Saigon cinnamon, and finishes with a kick of peppery heat. Think pumpkin pie with a little burn.
“Atomic Pumpkin is a twist on pumpkin ale for beer drinkers who like some heat. Classic fall flavors like pumpkin pie and cinnamon offer a sweet counterpart to the fiery peppers, making it a great, full-flavored beer for the crisp autumn weather.” Bryan Simpson, public relations director
