Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale

While the Imperial Pumpkin Ale wells are running dry, there is much to rejoice about in the world of Weyerbacher (I’d be more likely to lament my inability to consume any more Autumnfest until Fall 2010, but the Pumpkin seems to be quite a favorite of the masses).

First, we can turn our seasonal taste buds to one of the best winter brews in the land, Weyerbacher Winter Ale. Sweet, but not too sweet. Hearty, but not heavy. Tons of carbonation, but somehow it’s not overpowering or distracting. A great, malt-forward winter warmer, Winter Ale has what a good cold weather seasonal should with some surprises (as with all Weyerbacher beers).

And when you can’t find this beautiful winter neo-classic, you’ll know it’s time to seek out some Fireside Ale. Originally called Charlie, Fireside Ale is a brown ale that is robust and strong (around 8%). By any name, this is a beer leaving nothing to be desired. Having read that it will be available in stores in January, I am gearing up to buy some from my local distributor as you read this, only a month and a half in advance…

So, whether you are excited for some Winter Ale or Fireside Ale (as I, obviously am) or if you intend to go out and grab some award-winning Quad or the infamous oak aged Insanity, Weyerbacher is calling your name!

  1. How was the Fireside Ale? I’ve been looking around for that one, but I haven’t been able to find any yet.

    So I compromised and picked up a 4pack of Double Simcoe to satisfy my higher ABV needs and a case of Tröegs Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale for a maltier alternative.

  2. It’s GOOD!

    Keep your eyes out. I’ll make sure if I see it to grab a case and stow a 6er for you.

    Double Simcoe is one of Weyerbacher’s few that I dislike. Simcoe hops are to piney for me… I feel like I’m drinking a Christmas tree.
