Pumpkin Beer Round Up

On Saturday, we hosted our 7th annual Pumptoberfest party, a celebration of all things pumpkin!  Even though I arrived from Texas on Friday night, a quick vacuum of the house and some store-bought pumpkin ravioli got us in the party mood.  Plus, Pumptoberfest is a potluck and I knew our friends would bring some great pumpkin goodies.  More on that in another post!

The party is decidedly less wild than it has been- think coloring pumpkin placemats with toddlers instead of Smashing Pumpkin shots with 20 somethings.

That’s not to say there weren’t any adult beverages.  Plenty of pumpkin beer was passed around!

Pumple Drumkin Beer from Cisco Brewers | Pumpkin Beer Round Up | BettyCupcakes.com #pumpkin #beer #pumpledrumkin

I enjoyed a Pumple Drumkin from Cisco Brewers, which is a local brewery on Nantucket here in Massachusetts.  It’s lightly spiced and not too sweet.  Very drinkable.

I also had a sip of the husband’s Black O Lantern from Beerworks.   This is a pumpkin stout that’s rich and almost chocolate-y.  Thinking it would make a killer addition to a gingerbread or a pumpkin cake.

Pumpkin UFO from Harpoon | Pumpkin Beer Round Up | BettyCupcakes.com #pumpkin #beer #ufo #harpoonWe still have several UFO Pumpkin beers from Harpoon in the refrigerator.  I cannot wait to try this sweet, unfiltered brew.  
Pumpkin Works Ale from Beerworks | Pumpkin Beer Round Up | BettyCupcakes.com #pumpkin #beer

Beer Works also puts out Pumpkin Works.  Apparently, it’s like pumpkin pie in a glass.  Yes, please!

Today is going to be spent tasting donuts in Brockton for edible South Shore and doing laundry!  I’m glad it’s Monday- don’t throw things at me!  I like starting a new week- I thrive on routine so I’m ready to get back to normal after a week of lazing around and eating tons of great food.

Oh, and I joined the YMCA yesterday and plan to go this afternoon.  I guess donuts and exercise don’t really go together, but it’s all part of my Lose the Food Blogger 5 plan.  Hope y’all have a great day!

What’s your favorite pumpkin beer?  

Are you a Monday lover or hater?


  • […] What was my contribution?  Store-bought pumpkin raviolis from Alfredo Aiello’s Italian Foods.  My days of hand making pumpkin filled turnovers are clearly behind me.  I did have an excuse, as I had just traveled across the country with a toddler and had about 12 hours to prep for this party.  The pumpkin raviolis were delicious and they were on sale- score!  Oh yeah, and we bought the pumpkin beer.

    I’m hands-down a Monday hater!!!! In fact, it has spilled over into Sunday night at this point! Guess that happens when you don’t care for the 9-5 job…
    I love reading blogs, though, and loved your post on Pumpkin Beer! Makes me want one! :)
