Beer Tasting 4 - 7pm Friday, Sep 13

Your host is Renzo of Harry's.

Captain Lawrence Pumpkin Ale              $9.59/6pb
Brewed with pureed pumpkins added directly to the mash, and pumpkin pie spices added at the end of the boil, this beer packs a ton of flavor into a malty and smooth amber colored ale. Perfect for when the weather starts to change and ugly sweaters come out of storage.

Fire Island Pumpkin Barrel Ale               $9.69/6pb
It definitely looks the part of a pumpkin beer, pouring a rich dark amber color with a finger sized tan head that dissipates to a small ring around the glass. The aroma is mild, though hints of all the pumpkin spiceregulars (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and perhaps a whiff of ginger) are present. It also has a touch of caramel and butterscotch and the scent ends on a bit of a tart note. In keeping with the mild scent, the taste is not overwhelming either. There are traces of caramel and you definitely get a bit of spice coming through as well. The finish is bright and semi-bitter, leaving a bit of a pumpkin spice aftertaste.

Cicso Pumple  Drunkin                                       $9.99/6pc
On Nantucket a Pumple named Drumkin, brewed up some great ale with his pumpkins. One and all came to savor the delicious flavor, then wobbled around quite like bumpkins. At Cisco they thought, "The is De-Lish! Let’s make some more because we wish, to please all the tourists, and locals and purists, with the best ale that we can accomplish!"

Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale           $9.59/6pb
Post Road Pumpkin Ale is a revival of a beer brewed by the early American colonists. Pumpkins were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious and they blended nicely with barley malt. Hundreds of pumpkins are blended into each batch of Post Road Pumpkin Ale, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center and crisp finish. Post Road Pumpkin Ale is spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg.
