Pumpkin Ale

The perfect brew for fall, our Pumpkin Ale recipes are clean and sweetly malty, with just enough hop bitterness to balance. A dose of select spices at the end of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the pour to the last swish in the glass.

Autumn, and a homebrewer’s thoughts turn to capturing the sensory experience of the season … crisp nights, colorful leaves, and ripe gourds being turned into pie. We’re often asked for pumpkin beer recipes at this time of year, and it’s easy to understand why: sipping this spiced amber ale is like drinking a slice of pie. Smashing Pumpkin Ale is clean and sweetly malty with just enough hop bitterness to balance and no hop aroma to mask the spices. A dose at the shutdown of the boil imbues the beer with a complex, lingering spice profile full of nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger that persists from the pour to the last swish in the pint glass.
