Fire Island Pumpkin Barrel Ale

September 5, 2010

Awwwww yeah!! It’s September and that means it’s time for the seasonal brews of fall to appear. If you’re like me, you’ll drink any pumpkin style beer put in front of you because much like pizza, there is no such thing as a bad one. After several web searches, it appears that Idle Hands Bar will be the first to post a review of the beer.

– Pumpkin Ale
– 4.8% ABV
– Fire Island, NY
– THEY SAY:Β  The 3rd beer and first seasonal from this Long Island, NY brewery is a spice-infused, pumpkin style ale. To create this exceptional brew, the team from Fire Island joined forces with a sustainable New York farm to source local hops to produce a new craft ale of unparalleled quality. Pumpkin Barrel Ale is a masterpiece of hops, herbs and spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice and, of course, a ton of real pumpkin to impart a festive, seasonal taste.

REV SAYS:Β  The smells of spices and cinnamon say this beer is not for the weak of heart. The tastes on the other hand says “I’m a pumpkin beer and I love you.”
