We will open the tasting room for this beer on Friday, October 31 (Halloween) from 3pm until 8pm.The Deal: We have made a 32oz growler for the release of Pumpkin Cream Scobeyville Wood. It will be $20 full with the beer and will be reusable with us and places that fill other people’s growlers. There will be a limit of 2 per person.

Pumpkin Cream Scobeyville Wood

Barrel Aged Pumpkin Cream Ale

ABV: 9.5% | IBU: 28 | SRM: 6

There are pumpkin based flavors that are not pumpkin pie.  With this in mind we set out to make an autumnal beer in the pumpkin tradition that wasn’t simply a typical pie-spiced beer.  Looking to enhance the pumpkin’s naturally dry starchy flavors, we roasted its meat touched with orange oil, pink peppercorns and candied ginger.  This was added to the mash of our high gravity cream ale recipe.  We then took our soup inspired ale and aged it in our Scobeyville, NJ neighbors’, Laird’s, AppleJack barrels from last Halloween to this.  Time in the Scobeyville wood has mellowed the peppercorns’ heat, orange zest, and sweet ginger bite and added the autumnal note of bushels of red apples.  Drink Pumpkin Cream Scobeyville Wood because there are spices on the shelf behind the nutmeg and barrels beyond bourbon.

      I believe it’s being released in February 2015. I remember reading a post a few weeks back.
