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.

This makes me want to renew my wedding vows. I need to find the price on Elysian kegs. DL, find out how much shipping costs for kegs from Seattle and put it on your tab.

I've had five (different kinds!) so far this year. I haven't eaten candy corn for maybe five years.

So far the only pumpkin beer I've seen in my area was the Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Wheat in the store today. "Real pumpkin and spices", it said on the carton.
I just couldn't quite make myself pull the trigger, and my hand ended up reaching for the Ziegenbock Texas Amber that was on the shelf next to the Blue Moon.

Maybe next time.

The mix and match 6 pack is a perfect way to try the different pumpkin ales.

Pumpkin and beer don't belong in the same sentence or even the same conversation as far as I'm concerned. I feel the same about any fruit and beer.

I very rarely drink beer. This thread inspired me to try Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. I wouldn't say it is bad. I am having trouble tasting the pumpkin.

I believe I prefer A&W.

I'm tending to agree. But you and everyone else are one up on me, I haven't tried one yet.

I almost picked up a Pumpkin Ale today...but then I adjusted my hand position and got the Scotch Ale I was aiming for.
