With the fall season upon us, it’s about time to see pumpkin beers showing up on shelves around the world. Most pumpkin beers are either an ale or a stout (for the most part) but the IPA has only recently become a new canvas for brewers to experiment on with the beloved gourd. These are just a handful of the many great pumpkin IPAs out there, so keep an eye out this fall.
1. Kickin’ Knowledge – Barrier Brewing
This one by Barrier Brewing is Milkshake IPA brewed with Vanilla, Coconut, Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Coriander, All Spice & hopped with Mosaic, Motueka & Citra. It comes in at a nice 7.0% ABV.
We are flying down to Brazil for this one! Bier Hoff has created a beautiful & festive brew called Jerimoon Pumpkin IPA that uses an abundant amount of pumpkin and a perfect combination of five different types of imported malts.
Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks are great but PSL’s from your favorite brewery is better! Change our minds! This beauty by Masthead Brewing uses real pumpkin, cinnamon sticks, whole nutmegs, cloves, coffee beans from Six Shooter, lactose, and real Madagascar vanilla beans. Kick back by the fire and embrace being basic.
Tattered Flag Brewery went with a New England IPA brewed with lactose and hopped with a scary amount of sweet and sticky hops! It was fermented with whole pumpkin pies from Costco and then conditioned on a bounty of fresh pumpkin purée, Madagascar vanilla beans, and fall spices. No tricks, all treat. 🎃
