Pumpkin Spice for grown ups

Screen Shot 2015-09-26 at 9.55.36 PM

Oooh 2 of my favorite things…pumpkins and owls… I discovered this ale on friday and I’m hooked.

Crafted by Elysian Brewing Company, it is perfectly balanced with enough pumpkin and spices to taste like a fall beverage should without tasting like dessert. Both the men and women at our table liked this ale. The brewery’s site describes the process as being “brewed with seven and a half pounds of pumpkin per barrel and spiced in conditioning with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice”. Check out the ale’s stats here.

This is a seasonal ale and you should try a glass before it’s gone. Trust me, you’ll want to buy a 6 pack for your fridge.

Grapefruit Beer, breakfast of champs….

I tried Stiegl Grapefruit Beer tonight, and it was really refreshing, delicious and curiously thirst quenching. The grapefruit flavor is right out in front and is the perfect compliment to the beer.

The Stiegl web site describes it as:

“The Stiegl-Radler Grapefruit is a mix of Stiegl-Goldbräu and fruit juice that is invariably natural and has no artificial sweeteners added to it. The grapefruit juice lends this a naturally cloudy appearance and a tangy fruit flavor, creating a succulent and fruity taste sensation with a refreshing finish.”

Sure, it’s not a manly-man IPA, but it’s one that I can drink without grimacing. It’ll be perfect for days on the lake, or after a day of skiing.

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
