Pumpkin beers are showing up early this year. Way too early. July early. Below are some pictures I have taken locally of octoberfest/pumpkin beers that have been released.
(Brooklyn, NY) – Sixpoint Brewery took to Twitter on Wednesday to declare its feelings on July and August pumpkin beers:
“Any pumpkin beer on shelves now is clearly not made with this year’s pumpkin. Pumpkins are not harvested until October or November.”
Along with these, Shipyard Brewing has already released Smashed Pumpkin, Harpoon Pumpkin Cider, Ace Pumpkin Cider, Long Trails Imperial Pumpkin, Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale, and many others I am sure I have missed.
