Sweetly spicedTrick or Treat?
We haven’t missed a trick in bringing you a real treat this Halloween. As the full moon takes hold this Hallows Eve makes sure to warm your bones with this sweetly spiced copper ale.
As sweet as pie and as dark as the spookiest Halloween night, Pumpkin Pie Ale is made with real pumpkin and has fresh spice aromas of nutmeg and allspice with a candied flavour of cinnamon, caramel and brown sugar on the palate.
Pumpkin pie is so popular around Halloween as pumpkins are in season at this time of year and this hearty meal is a real winter warmer.
Pumpkins were used as an alternative to turnips and beats for making lanterns due to their size, colour and availability. It is well known that people would carve scary faces into their pumpkins and leave them next to doorways to ward off evil spirits. A practice that likely stemmed from the superstitions and strict religious practices of yesteryear.
So, spend the month of Halloween sipping this delicious beer before the ghosts and ghouls get hold of it!
