The “Uncharted Waters” series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2019 edition of Great’er Pumpkin, a bourbon barrel aged pumpkin ale with spices, available in both 4 packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft. The brewery will also be introducing an extremely limited, draft-only variant of the beer brewed with coffee, lactose, and vanilla.
Great’er Pumpkin pours a rich, deep burnished orange color with a thick white head. Aromas of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and clove give this brew a great aromatic complexity, while British crystal malt, brown sugar, and pumpkin add a sense of weight and body. Bourbon barrel aging rounds out its flavors with notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. A beer not to be missed!
Great’er Pumpkin Latte is aged in bourbon barrels with locally roasted coffee and vanilla beans. The addition of lactose gives a creamy, steamed milk-like flavor to this complex and decadent brew.
Both versions of Great’er Pumpkin will be available starting this week and throughout September in limited markets within Heavy Seas’ distribution footprint.
