Pumpkin Brews are Back!
It wouldn't be fall without something pumpkin-flavored, and what better way to have it than in a brew! Spend your fall weekend tasting pumpkin brews around DE with this round-up of locations.
Argilla Brewing Co. @ Pietro’s
Boogsley’s Pumpkin Ale
A tasty spiced amber ale, brewed with shredded pumpkin that’s added to mash before being hit with a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove & brown sugar.
Autumn Arch Beer Project
They proudly proclaim that “no pumpkins were harmed” in the making of the 2021 “Sans Pumpkin” dark porter, but you’ll surely appreciate its distinct pie-like accents, and enjoy the delicate notes of cranberry in each sip.
Big Oyster Brewery
Shuckin' Pumpkin Ale
Crushable fall goodness brewed with pumpkins, and spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, clove and allspice.
Blue Earl Brewing
The word on the street is that this Imperial Pumpkin Ale is “dangerously drinkable,” with a solid malt backbone, notes of caramel and toasted pie crust, and sweet touches of local brown honey and maple syrup.
Crooked Hammock Brewery
This smoked pumpkin coffee ale is as complex as it is delicious. Packed with real pumpkin smoked over Bethany Blues' cherrywood, this brew boasts a balance of smoke, spices, dark malts and dark roasted coffee beans from our friends over at Swell Joe.
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Grab some Dogfish’s signature fall brew soon, because the shelves may be empty by Thanksgiving. Named in honor of the Delaware-born (and nationally known) “Punkin Chunkin” event, this full-bodied brown ale has hints of pumpkin and brown sugar, along with seasonally appropriate spices.
Fordham & Dominion Brewing Company
Pumpkin Pie Stout, Spiced Harvest Ale
For years, their medium-bodied, pumpkin-spiced Harvest Ale has been a seasonal crowd favorite. This season, we get to sample a fresh fall contestant: Pumpkin Pie Stout is an American sweet stout that’s infused with vanilla beans and oak chips during conditioning, delivering a smooth and roasty flavor with a hint of (you guessed it) pumpkin pie.
Iron Hill Brewery – Wilmington, Newark & Rehoboth
This is a medium-bodied copper ale, malty sweet with a balancing bitterness. Spiced with traditional pumpkin pie spices and vanilla instead of finishing hops.
