A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. This beer is brewed with pumpkin meat, organic brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is perfect to warm up with.
Punkin Ale is named after the seriously off-centered southern Delaware extravaganza Punkin Chunkin (check out some of these Discovery Channel videos of Punkin Chunkin, you gotta see it to believe it!). In fact, Punkin Ale made its debut as it claimed first prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest.
Punkin Chunkin has grown in size and scale, with pumpkins now being hurled more than 4,000 feet through the air! If you come down to see if for yourself, drop by and visit them.
It is released right around Sept. 1 each year. When you find it, grab some extra because it's usually gone by Thanksgiving.
