#DrinkUpLinkUp — Blackstone Pumpkin Ale

October 25th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

It’s Thirsty Thursday, and I’m participating for the first time in The Purple Giraffe‘s “Drink Up Link Up.” I was introduced to it last week thanks to Twitter and immediately went, “That’s right up my alley!”

(No really, I literally tweeted that.)

So with much thought and care, I chose my first brew for the challenge of featuring an “adult beverage” of my choice. Oh okay, I picked the last beer we had left in the fridge, but its still a good one!

I introduce to you Blackstone Pumpkin Ale!

Blackstone is this awesome brewery right here in Nashville, and I love supporting local shops/stores/breweries. As a bonus, I love fall seasonals.

A lot of people did a Sober October. Well, I think I gained all the weight those participating lost, because I upped my beer consumption a bit due to all the amazing beers out right now.

Blackstone Pumpkin Ale was one of our fall seasonal splurges. I really liked it! Just enough pumpkin flavor without being overbearing. Its rare, but I HAVE had a few pumpkin ales that left me reaching for water to cleanse my palate after being assaulted with all those strong fall spices. This… this one I like!

NOTE: According to the Blackstone Facebook page, their distributor is out of Pumpkin Ale. So this fall seasonal is ending its run as the last six packs are sold off the shelves.

    Oooo this one looks tasty! I agree, some pumpkin beers are a bit over the top with the spiciness, I prefer one that is more balanced and not too pumpkin-y! Thanks for linking up!

    Ever since you introduced me to the Shock Top Pumpkin Ale, I’ve been in love with Shock Top. I like their version better than the Blue Moon Pumpkin Harvest. I bet I’d like Blackstone, too. (Maybe a future birthday gift? Hint? Next time you’re down? LOL) So happy I got you interested in Drink Up Link Up!
