Speaking of Pumpkin ales, I'm brewing mine as I type this.
This beer is a major pain in the arse to brew, but I love how that hot break resembles pumpkin pie.
Well, on 8/2 I went to S. CA for a mtg.
Went here looking for Pliny:
Dint have it , but the beer dude suggested I try this: (had it w/ a Inn-N-Out Burger)
If ever there was a Pesto flavored beer - this would be it.
So 2 days ago I treated myself to a delightful lunch at the Bernards Inn.
Oddly, they do not have beers on tap but featured this on the menu(mentioned much earlier in this thread)
I didnt like it too much but finished it. Maybe too much for :
red quinoa, pickled cherry tomatoes, corn, garlic scapes, parsley & pine nut salsa verde
Today's escape from stress and the crushing weight of everyday life:
So I went to the Yard House at the Palisade Mall last night. Took forever to get a table so hit the bar. What a delightful selection of a ton of beers. Had the following last night.
Ommegang Witte- Belgian style was very soft and smooth. Pretty much what I drank the whole night
Breckenridge Vanilla Porter- Had this for desert. Again, smooth. Lighter than Guinness and more flavorful.
Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold- Washed everything down with this Yeasty, spicy with a nice, very discreet hint of hops.
There selections are unbelievable. Check them out
Hoppin' Frog's B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout
Hoppin' Frog's Hollow Double Pumpkin Ale
Southern Tier Pumking
Wolaver's Pumpkin Ale
Had some Tiger Beer tonite, from Cambodia. My bud's sopne just did ythe spring semester abroad in Cambodia and Vietnam, drank this a lot, found it in Rhode Island.
Though if you are just getting into Pumpkin beers you probably want to work york way up and try one of these fist. Wolaver's Pumpkin, Southampton Pumking, or Smuttynose Pumpkin. Shipyard Pumkinhead is a probably the least "Pumking'ny" beer I know of.

My favorite pumpkin beer is Southern Tier's Pumking. It's pumpkin pie in a bottle.
