Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Drinker

The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping, the boots are coming out, this can only mean one thing- IT’S FINALLY FALL! The best season with the best drinks. Bring on the pumpkin beer!

Maryland has a wide selection of breweries releasing their pumpkin beer around this time. Here is a list of some smashing pumpkin ales.

Pub Dog’s Monster Mash: Pub Dog started in 2005 as a pizza and draft house in Baltimore. They have since expanded, opening a brewery in Westmister, MD. This brew is a pumpkin/yam style. The label reads 6.66% ABV, those clever dogs! Sounds like a graveyard smash to me.

Flying Dog’s The Fear: Flying Dog originated in Colorado and relocated to Frederick, MD in 1994. Donned with crazy original Ralph Steadman art, this label is eye catching. This is an imperial pumpkin ale. This beer’s ingredients make it sound more like pumpkin pie; It is brewed with local pumpkin puree and a secret blend of spices. Racking up 9.0% ABV, this beer is not for the fearful.

Heavy Sea’s Great’er Pumpkin Ale: A brewery out of Baltimore, MD dating back to 1995. Heavy sea’s is a very popular baltimore brewery with a popular pumpkin beer. The Great’er is a bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin ale. Barrel-aging the beer add oaky, vanilla notes making this beer full of flavor. A strong flavored and very alcoholic beer (10.0% ABV!).
