Portland, OR – Phew with a title like that, one cannot get lost in the names being presented but here we are, listing another set of highly anticipated beers. So in rapid fire succession here are the beers for you to enjoy.

Stingy Jack Pumpkin Ale

The story of Stingy Jack is legendary in Ireland and is the infamous "Jack-o-the-Lantern." We've paid homage to this less-than-loveable drunkard with a pumpkin ale that's if not more friendly thank Jack, then at least as renowned. This amber colored brew was created with roasted whole pumpkin, toasted pumpkin seeds and organic pumpkin puree. A touch of spices creates a subtle and delicious brew to chase away the evil spirit of Stingy Jack.

OG 15.5  TG 2.2  ABV 7.1  IBUs 23

Our Thoughts.
You Should Try This.
We admit that we are suckers for Pumpkin Ales and this one is no different. Grab some Turkey or Chicken (maybe even some Pork Chop) and enjoy this appropriately named ale.

"Some Like It Hop" Fresh Hop Pale

Our second fresh hop beer of the season uses wet Crystal hops from Virgil Gamache Farms near Yakima, WA. These hops display an amazingly fruity character in the fresh form. For this beer, we split about 80 lbs of hops between the mash, whirlpool and hop back, focusing mostly on their aroma potential.

OG 15.3   TG 2.7   ABV 6.7%
(22-ounce Bottle Release on 11/1)

Fresh Hops are a rare concoction given that they usually only show up around late September to early October. For an interesting treat, try this with some halibut or maybe a chicken fried steak with some gravy and mash potatoes.

One of our most popular seasonals, this strong ale is as rich and complex as it is drinkable. A blend of six malts and four hops creates an ale with deep caramel character, spicy hop flavor and a dry, roasty finish. It’s spelled differently because it’s Vonderful!

OG 16   ABV 6.4%  IBU 49

Our Thoughts
You Should Try This.
Although we have yet to wet our whistle on this beer we are having a hard time not wanting to make the trip when this is released. This beer sounds like it would go well with some raisin bread with a bit of melted butter or maybe a nice bit of honey smoked ham.

Cheers
