This award-winning recipe traces its roots to the old Cottonwood Brewery in Boone, NC, where head brewer, Don Richardson, perfected his spiced pumpkin ale in 1997. A few years later after Cottonwood had sold, Don generously agreed to lend his pumpkin beer recipe to his good friend, Scott Pyatt, Co-Owner of Catawba Brewing. Catawba has continued to faithfully reproduce the beer as an annual limited release, under the “King Don’s” name to honor its original brewer.
King Don’s is deep orange in color, and uses five separate barley varieties, fresh pumpkin, and an assortment of spices (cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, nutmeg) to create its complex flavor profile. Drinks like pumpkin pie in a glass! Show Less
