September has only begun but Pumpkin Spice ANYTHING is already on people’s minds! In preparation for the change in season join Kelsick Specialty Market September 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. for their monthly complimentary beer tasting featuring several exciting pumpkin brews and your first tastes of Fall!
Paulaner – Oktoberfest-Märzen
This full bodied beer with its rich malt flavor, dark toffee note and underlying fruitiness has a masterful hop balance.
Port City – Oktoberfest
Amber in color with malty, gently sweet flavors of crusty bread, leading to a clean, dry finish with just a touch of noble hops
Terrapin – Pumpkinfest
Expect a pumpkin pie nose followed by a strong malt backbone, low hop bitterness and authentic fall taste, all wrapped in a light bodied beer.
Devil’s Backbone – Pumpkin Hunter
Toasted malt up front, bready and earthy, followed by lots of brown sugar-like sweetness, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices of clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and all-spice.
Schlafly – Pumpkin Ale
Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.
Southern Tier – Pumpking
On the nose pumpkin pie spices, buttery crust, vanilla and roasted pecans. Malty sweet flavor with clove, allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Rogue Ales – Shakespeare Oatmeal Stout
Nearly black with just barely some reddish hues. Notes of freshly brewed coffee and rich bitter-sweet chocolate. Roasty and earthy malts up front, cigar smoke as it lingers, not near as tart as other smoky brews.
Stone Brewing Co. – Thunderstruck IPA
This beer brings the boom, delivering it to the palate in a voluminous thunderclap. Luscious tropical, peachy, citrus-like flavors and slightly resinous, aromatically dank earthiness.
