Pumpkin beer. Hey gourdeous! This time of year it is as controversial as Halloween Circus Peanuts. Many people won’t touch it simply out of fear of the unknown. Others seem to find an odd connection between pumpkin beer and pumpkin spice everything that has swept the nation over the past decade. Meanwhile, others, myself included, love a good pumpkin ale now and then during the season of the witch.

Pumpkin Beer Brewing History.

Pumpkin beer really isn’t a new thing. In fact, according to Wikipedia, The brewing of beer with pumpkin in the United States dates back to 1771. However, the first commercially brewed pumpkin ale came from Buffalo Bill’s Brewery in Hayward, California, in the 1980s. Moreover the recipe was based on brewing studies made by none other than our Founding Father himself, George Washington! So saying that you hate pumpkin beer is like saying you hate America! Now aren’t you ashamed!

Style Of Pumpkin Beer A Brewery.

Many styles of pumpkin beer are produced in the USA, including pale ales, wheat beers, porters, and stouts. Obviously, pumpkin styles of beer are most often produced as seasonal offerings in the Fall, from breweries that have pumpkins readily available to be mass purchased, or in some cases grown just for the purpose of heading to the brewery.

How A Brewery Makes Pumpkin Beer.

Pumpkin ale may be produced using pumpkin flesh in combination with malt or other more typical beer grains as a portion of the mash, contributing fermentable sugars. It may also be produced by adding natural or artificial flavoring to a finished beer. Furthermore, pumpkin spice flavor may be added to evoke the flavor of pumpkin pie.
