So, the name "Elysian" has been strongly suggested. I did a search and it appears that the closest store that carries this is ~75 mi from me. I'll pick some up on our next road trip.
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Oh, it's tasty. It is a cider that has grains in the mash and lightly hopped. I love ciders and we drink more cider than mead, any more. This one has aged four years and was ready. I added rice in the mash for body (but it tends to not effect the other flavors) and hopped with cascade hops. I think I used an ale yeast for this one (I would need to look at my notes) but it is worth a try if you homebrew.

I'm not quite sure where you are but see if there's any Schlafly available. I couldn't imagine a better pumpkin ale to start with.

According to a quick search the closest place to me with Schlafly is Galloway Grill, approx 500 mi from my zip code area. In the meantime I'm thinking Shiner's Octoberfest. Then, road trip to Houston, and a visit to Spec's midtown store on Smith.

Schlafly or Williamsburg Alewerks make the best pumpkin beer hands down! I will say though, Strangeways makes a sour pumpkin called Rot in Hell that is awesome too!

I rarely have beer anymore. Maybe 1-2 every several months. Like at a dinner out kind of thing. If I tried a new beer and it was just awful to me, I would be very sad. I'm not coo-coo for pumpkins. Personally, it just presents too much of a risk to try one.

So I personally love pumpkin and pumpkin ale haha, but to each their own... We had an October wedding and served Schlafly Pumpkin, I personally chose the beers and wines that were offered, we had 3 wines and 6 beers to choose from and that was one of them. I acquired like 2 or 3 cases of it, but it was still the first to run out.
