Terrapin Brewing’s Pumpkinfest is back! 2011 is the 3rd year for this beer. Pumpkinfest debuted in the brewery’s Side Project 22oz series before getting upgraded.
I have always wanted to brew a traditional Octoberfest for the Fall season, but it seems that these darn pumpkin beers are all the rage right now. So… keeping up with Terrapin’s out of the box brewing tradition, I have decided to brew a beer that combines both of these delicious brewing styles. “Pumpkinfest” is a traditional Octoberfest brewed with over 1 pound of pumpkin per barrel along with pumpkin spices.
All of the malt of a German Fest beer and all the spice of Grandma’s pumpkin pie! Eat it up! Spike
