Seasonal Spotlight: New Belgium Pumpkick

Seasonal Spotlight: New Belgium Pumpkick

With dipping temperatures in the Hoosier state, it’s really starting to feel more and more like fall! AND, we all know that nothing pairs with sweaters, boots and bonfires quite like a good ole’ pumpkin brew. This week’s spotlighted seasonal is Pumpkick Spiced Ale – straight outta the New Belgium Brewery.

Tasting notes: What’s that bite of tartness doing in a pumpkin beer? Adding the unexpected kick of cranberry juice to brighten this traditionally spiced seasonal ale. Pumpkick is brewed with plenty of pumpkin juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice, but it’s the cranberries and touch of lemongrass that send your taste buds sailing. Available in August-October 2015.

Pair this brew with a pumpkin bread loaf topped with Pumpkick inspired glaze. Recipe here.
