More on Pumpkin Ale (formerly Stingy Jack)

Laurelwood Pumpkin Ale starts with a Strong Ale recipe for a nutty amber beer. We then prepare pumpkin, squash and a pumpkin pie spice blend and add it into the process from the Mash Tun through to the Hop Back. The result is a smooth and silky amber strong ale with a warm and spicy nose and rich body, which will set you aglow like a jack o’ lantern.

7.2% ABV / 12 IBU / O.G. 17° Plato

We know what you’re going to say, “So what happened to Stingy Jack?”.

The brewery it seems didn’t come up with the name first and someone took notice. So get used to Laurelwood Pumpkin Ale, because this is their name until someone comes up with something better.

Look for bottles of Laurelwood Pumpkin Ale wherever you find Workhorse, Free Range Red, or Portlandia Pale. As always if you can’t find it near you then you best be asking your server or grocer to get some!.


About Laurelwood Brewing

Hi, I’m Mike De Kalb. I, along with my wife Cathy Woo-De Kalb, own and operate the Laurelwood Family of Pubs and Breweries. Laurelwood Brewing Co. is our family owned business that was founded in 2001 in Portland, Or. After years of working in the hospitality industry and raising a young family, we decided to make the leap to ownership. The original Laurelwood Public House & Brewery was opened in the Hollywood district of Portland in March 2001 in a defunct pub location with a small 7 barrel brewery. We opened Laurelwood Public House & Brewery with a vision to create an eating and drinking establishment where everyone could feel welcome. We wanted it to feel like you were attending a party at our house where Moms, dads, kids, single friends and neighbors can all mingle together to create a positive energy. To put it simply, we are “A Place Where Friends and Families Meet.” [more]
