NEW BADGE: Pumpkin Beer Season (2023)
Pumpkin beers—trick or treat? Yes, this style is polarizing, but love 'em or hate 'em pumpkin beers are an iconic part of the fall season.
We're all for giving the gourd some love this October!
After all, pumpkin beers didn't initially start as a gimmick. During the seventeenth century, common ingredients used in beer today, such as wheat and barley, weren't as easily accessible as those smiling jack-o' lanterns.
But people had a healthy supply of those gorgeous gourds with their pulpy interiors full of fermentable sugars.
Today, you'll find a pumpkin patch of pumpkin/yam beers on the shelf—some imperial, some barrel-aged, some made with pie spices, and others with real pumpkins.
If you hate pumpkin beers, you've probably stopped reading by now. But if you're good on the gourds, check out our newest badge, pumping up the polarizing pumpkin.
