Pumpkin beers! Get them while you can.
Which is both the good and the bad thing about pumpkin beers; they don’t last for very long. It tends to be a fairly short window that they’re available during (although that window is growing in recent years), so it’s good to grab when you can.
Or you can get cans. Boynton Beach’s Due South Brewing has a canning line and a small distribution radius in Central and South Florida, so many of you should be able to grab a 4-pack of their pumpkin ale, Isle of Magourdo (Pumpkin Beer, 5% ABV).
First, I love the can artwork. Second, the deep amber (dare I say pumpkin?) color of the brew is fantastic. As for the taste, it has a light hoppiness, a little roughness on the palate, and a whole lot of pumpkin pie spice flavor. It really is like fall in a glass. The aroma hits you big, and it lingers with you for a little while.
I know that in the Due South tap room they’ve released batches of Magourdo aged in bourbon barrels. I missed that; it’s a shame.
It’s a seasonal beer. It won’t be around long. Go and grab it now.
