Uinta Punk’n

Uinta Brewing is a Utah-based brewer that’s popped up on my radar recently—at least under the “Uinta” label. I have a bottle of their barleywine in my fridge (found at the Bier Stein in Eugene) and found their Punk’n Harvest Pumpkin Ale here in Bend this year. (They also apparently brew the “Crooked Line” series of beers that come in the 750ml corked bottles, and the “Four+” line of organice beers—both of which I thought … Continue reading →

Kick, Pumpkin and Cranberry Ale

Kick is a collaboration pumpkin ale from Elysian Brewing and New Belgium Brewing and is released under New Belgium’s Lips of Faith series—and as such it is more than just another pumpkin beer. It is, in fact, a pumpkin and cranberry sour ale, 8.5% alcohol by volume, blended with wood-aged beer so that 75% is the pumpkin cranberry, and 25% is the wood-aged sour. Understandably, it is one of the most unusual pumpkin beers I’ve … Continue reading →

Hence I am always excited when I find pumpkin beers being brewed by Oregon breweries. Last year I had posted a (short) list of Oregon breweries that I … Continue reading →

Stone, Elysian, Bruery pumpkin beer collaboration

Stone Brewing is heading up another collaboration beer, this time with Elysian Brewing and The Bruery, and what caught my eye about this particular brew is that it’s a pumpkin beer (of course!). Dick Cantwell of Elysian spills the details about it on the Elysian blog: The boys from the Bruery were a great addition to the scheme, suggesting using yams and fenugreek in the beer. Apparently they use fenugreek in their Autumn Maple beer, … Continue reading →

Saranac Pumpkin Ale

When I received the Saranac selection of beers last month, the one I was most interested in and excited to try was (naturally) the Pumpkin Ale. It is, in fact, the first pumpkin beer I’ve seen—and drank—this season, so (and I admit this is an overt bias) while the other Saranac beers I reviewed were good, drinkable beers, this one is the star. Saranac Pumpkin Ale is 5.4% alcohol by volume, and is a classic … Continue reading →
