(WA) Coming Soon (To The Great Pumpkin Beer Fest) … Avery Rumpkin, Rum Barrel-aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale.

image of owner and brewer Adam Avery courtesy of The Herald Review Seattle, WA – We saw this arrive in our inbox and thought to ourselves, WOW! Announced for consumption on the 13th (Wednesday), Boulder Colorado’s Avery Brewing announced the arrival of their Pumpkin Ale, Rumpkin.

After reviewing the contents of the email we only had one thing to say, darn! But, there is a silver-lining, as this beer will be making a limited appearance at two pumpkin related festivals. The first is none other than the granddaddy of them all, Elysian’s The Great Pumpkin Beer Fest, and the second host will be Cambridge Brewing’s Great Pumpkin Festival (in Cambridge, MA).

But don’t take it for me if this is definitely one to try, here is what the brewery had to say.

Rum Barrel-Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale
Draft Only Release is Tonight 10/13

Come on over to the Avery Tap Room tonight (10/13) at 6PM for the official release of Rumpkin!  Spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice, Rumpkin was brewed with fresh pumpkin puree in the mash and utilized a dry-spicing technique before it was transferred into Gosling's Rum barrels to be aged for six months.  Rumpkin balances intense, sweet flavors of brown sugar, vanilla and pumpkin with a distinct and drying spiciness.   Consume early and often, preferably with pumpkin pie and/or s'mores on crisp.  See you tonight at the Avery Tap Room!

About Avery Brewing

Since 1993 our brewery has been committed to producing eccentric ales and lagers that defy styles or categories. Our products are thoroughly American at heart: blending Old World tradition and expertise with ingenuity, creativity and boldness.

We are dedicated to making beer from the inside out: we brew what we like to drink--with utter disregard for what the market demands-- and search out fans with equally eccentric palates (We learned long ago that expressing your true self is much more fulfilling than giving in to outside pressures. Don't you agree?) If you think your taste buds can keep up with our brews, we invite you to check out our entire lineup of more than twenty different beers.

Peace to all and follow your dreams!
