Thirsty Thursday-Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin
Happy Thirsty Thursday! I know what you're thinking, why in the WORLD do we need another Pumpkin Beer?!? Honestly I tend to agree, but after trying this beauty from Shipyard Brewing Co. in Portland, ME, you need to make room in your Fridge for one more. Smashed Pumpkin is AMAZING! As you can probably tell by the name, this one will definitely help you on the road to being Smashed. Maybe not the full intention of the name but at 9% ABV it's not for the faint of heart...(Please Drink Responsibly). This beer not only packs a punch but is full of Autumn flavor and furthermore makes you wish Fall could be a season enjoyed year round. Shipyard's description is spot on: "A big-bodied beer with a pleasing aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. Pale Ale, Wheat, and Light Munich malts combine with the natural tannin in pumpkin and the delicate spiciness of Saphir and Hallertau Hops to balance the sweetness of the fruit. **This beer is best enjoyed at 55 degrees Fahrenheit." **Don't sleep on the last part, definitely best enjoyed at 55 Degrees Fahrenheit..trust me. So let the Pumpkin Season begin and add another brew to your Fall beer selection. Grab some, you won't regret it. Cheers!
