2. Pumking
- Southern Tier Brewing Company
Pumking is an ode to Púca, a creature of Celtic folklore, who is both feared and respected by those who believe in it. Púca is said to waylay travelers throughout the night, tossing them on its back, and providing them the ride of their lives, from which they return forever changed! Brewed in the spirit of All Hallows Eve, a time of year when spirits can make contact with the physical world and when magic is most potent. Pour Pumking into a goblet and allow it’s alluring spirit to overflow. As spicy aromas present themselves, let its deep copper color entrance you as your journey into this mystical brew has just begun. As the first drops touch your tongue a magical spell will bewitch your taste buds making it difficult to escape. 8.6% abv

4.  Terrapin Pumpkinfest  - Terrapin Beer Company
‘Pumpkinfest’ is a traditional Octoberfest brewed with over 1 pound of pumpkin per barrel along with pumpkin spices. All of the malt of a German Fest beer and all the spice of Grandma’s pumpkin pie!”


5. La Parcela- #1 Pumpkin Ale - Jolly Pumpkin
Packed with real pumpkins, hints of spice and a gentle kiss of cacao to lighten the soul. An everyday easy way to fill your squashy quotient. Only available for a few short months. Not to be missed.
 
6. Alaskan Pumpkin Porter - Alaskan Brewing Company
With over 11 pounds of pumpkin added to every barrel of this imperial porter, this beer has a smooth, velvety rich texture. Brown sugar, holiday spices and a scoche of Alaskan’s famous alder-smoked malt are added to create an aroma and flavor reminiscent of grandma’s Thanksgiving pumpkin pie.

7. Ichabod Ale - New Holland Brewing Company
Ichabod combines malted barley and real pumpkin with cinnamon and nutmeg in a delicious and inviting brew.

Ichabod pairs well with autumnal foods such as poultry and root vegetables. After dinner, try it with your favorite dessert. 4.7% abv.
 
8. Imperial Pumpkin
- Weyerbacher Brewing Company
This 8.0% ABV pumpkin ale is the mother of all pumpkin ales. It is heartier, spicier, and more “caramelly” and “pumpkiny” than its faint brethren! We have added lots of pumpkin along with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and a touch of cardamom and clove giving this beer a spicy, full-bodied flavor. This truly is an Imperial Pumpkin Ale.

9. Pumpkin Lager Beer -
Lakefront Brewery
Pours a light orange with an off-white head. Flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves meld well with a slightly sweet background that actually does taste a bit like pumpkin. Caramel and Munich malts reinforce this beer's mouthfeel and lend to the malty sweetness.

10. Pumpkinhead Ale -
Shipyard Brewing Co.
Butterscotch was present in the aroma and very noticeable in the taste. Some nice pumpkin is also present but in a very creamy way. Kind of a mixture of Cool Whip and pumpkin paste. Not a lot of spice is present but sweet malt is. A bit of toffee and vanilla come to mind.

Honorable Mention
All Hallows Ale -HopDog BeerWorks, Australia

 Pumpkinated Belgian ale. Brewed with roasted pumpkins, spices, specialty sugars and mischief in mind. HopDog All Hallowed Ale is a beer made for the Witching Hour. Brimming with earthy and spicy aromas and a little bit of that tell tale Belgian funk, it’s body and mouthfeel be the heady strength of this limited edition release. Best consumed on the Hallowed Eve, in a grave yard, under a full moon. if possible. Or just in a wide mouthed goblet. Pop the green cap and release the unspeakable.

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale - Smuttynose Brewing Company, New Hampshire

Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale is our homage to the craft and heritage of America’s brewers. Recipes calling for the use of pumpkins in beer date back to early colonial times, when brewers sought to extend their supply of costly imported malt with locally grown ingredients, such as squash and “pompions.”
