Around these parts, Pumpkinator is kind of a big deal. It’s made by Saint Arnold Brewing Company – a local Houston brewery. They have pretty rad tours and lunches, too.
The folks over at Saint Arnold put out a single batch of Pumpkinator each year….and that’s it. Bars run out quickly, grocery stores run out even faster.
I finally got my hands on the last two bottles [at a particular Spec’s Liquor Store] after many, many phone calls on day two of it’s 2013 release. I only drank half, gave the other half to Daniel, and am saving bottle #2 for a special occasion. Maybe Daniel’s birthday next week?
Below is my opinion. Nothing fancy…just me…ranting for a couple minutes. And possibly feeling the effects. hahaha 🙂
Here’s a little bit of interesting “history & trivia” [lifted straight off the website!]:
Debuted October 2011.
–>In the time it took to make the 154 bbls of Pumpkinator wort in our brewhouse, we could have made 1275 bbls of Elissa wort.
–>The amount of malt it took to make 154 bbls of Pumpkinator wort would have made 1514 bbl of Lawnmower wort.
–>During the time in the fermenter it took to age the 154 bbls of Pumpkinator, we could have made 1027 bbls of Amber Ale.
–>With the amount of pumpkin used to make Pumpkinator, we could have baked 437 pumpkin pies.
I love this! I love local pride for craft beers… especially the seasonal ones! How fun 🙂
While Germany has amazing beer, they all look at me like I'm absolutely nuts when I talk about how much I miss pumpkin beer from the US. It's just not a thing here, and they don't realize how badly they're missing out!
