The time of year is quickly upon us that is full of football, crisp air and my favorite thing of all…PUMPKIN! Delmarva’s robust craft brews offer some wonderful options, all available rather soon.

Dogfish Head official release of their Punkin Ale is on September 1st, this brew began as a spiced pumpkin homebrew back in 1994 before the actual brewery was open. Some things are meant to last! You may see signs of it popping up sooner for purchase and can get a pint at the brewery beginning today. Here is their blog post about the release.

Evolution Brewery has their Jacques Au Lantern release this weekend as well, another local version of a pumpkin beer (and my personal favorite). Come out for the release of Evolution Craft Breweries Jacques Au Lantern Pumpkin Ale at Boonies Chop House & Pub.. This fall seasonal is an unfiltered amber ale brewed with locally grown pumpkins. Roasted pumpkins are added to the mash and traditional pumpkin pie spices to the kettle, and then ferment with a Belgian Yeast Strain.

Support local business, and enjoy the taste of autumn!
