Specís was able to make a special purchase on Shipyard Pumpkin Head from Maine to ensure that our customers could actually get a pumpkin beer in October this year. Each year, Specís buys more pumpkin beer than the previous year and each year we sell out faster than the previous year. Come hell or high water we will have pumpkin beer this year in October and hopefully into November!
Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin 6PK 12oz Bottles $7.99
Early American colonialists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious.
