HopCast Episode 153

Episode 153: Pumpkin Lager Beer and Pumpkinhead Ale

In episode 153 Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski are ready for halloween and are enjoying a couple pumpkin beers. They start off the episode enjoying Lakefronts Pumpkin Lager. This beer comes in at 6% ABV and is pretty easy for us to track down here in the midwest. Ken and Brad follow the Pumpkin Lager up with Pumpkinhead Ale from Shipyard. This 5.1% ABV pumpkin gift came from Hop Cast friend and fan Jake Williams. If you’re looking for a seasonal pumpkin beer that’s not exploding with pumpkin flavor or spices then this it the beer to try. Ken Hunnemeder and Brad Chmielewski would like to wish everyone who watches the Hop Cast a Happy Halloween!

    hey guys, i actually work on the bottling line at Shipyard and live in Portland. Just so you guys know there’s a ton of breweries here. We rival any beer city and most often have to yap back and forth with the Portland of the west people. But just a few breweries on the list in Maine are, Shipyard, Geary’s, Allagash, Gritty’s, Peak Organic, Rising Tide, Maine Beer Company, Bar Harbor, Marshall Wharf, Sea Dog, and Run of the Mill is a small sample of the more well known companies from Maine.
    You guys have to check out the beer culture more here, it is as intense as anywhere.

    Mike, 
    Thanks! Totally forgot Peak was in Maine. We put ourself on the spot and blanked. Guess it just shows we need to drink more east coast beers. Great to know Maine has so many excellent breweries.
