The only thing better than pumpkin beer is Troeg's Mad Elf.
I drank all of the first three beers (Dogfish, Weyerbacher, BM) and the BM is by far my favorite of the bunch.
They have some pretty good beers overall, but I haven't tried that one.
Does anyone have any reviews on the wild bills pumpkin ale?
Pumking is great but I rank it 3rd behind Selins Grove Pumpkin and Iron Hill Imperial Pumpkin.
Iron hill is out of Lancaster, right?
There are some Pumpkin beers out there that I don't hate, but by and large they are more of a gimmick beer to me.
Some of the better breweries do use actual pumpkin in the brew process while a good majority don't. The reason being that pumpkin really doesn't add much flavor at all to a beer. So basically what you are really drinking is a heavily spiced ale to mimic pumpkin pie. If you like pumpkin pie a lot then I guess you would love drinking the "pie" beers. But I myself can only handle one or two before I have to move on to something a little less nutmeggy. I sort of feel the same way about most of the spiced Christmas beers so maybe it is just me.
I do find it interesting now that certain breweries have come out with these imperial "pie" ales that are 8-12% abv. That has certainly helped with the popularity of some of those beers.
If I had to pick one that I can tolerate more than others it is probably Smuttynose's Pumpkin Ale.
When I was down in Charlottesville for the game my buddies and I visited Starr Hill Brewery and they had a Pumpkin Porter on tap. I'm not usually a pumpkin beer guy but the porter was a nice twist on the typical pumpkin ale. Anyone down in that part of the country should check it out. They are only now starting to get ready to ship up to PA/NJ but their stable of beers was very impressive.
Bayern, just picked up a six pack to go with my Wisconsonian Oktoberfests. Drinking my first one now, wow. A good ale on the way in, spiced pumpkin after. So good.
God, St.Louis makes great beer.
Just had a woodchuck pumpkin ale, good stuff
Just picked up a couple bottles of Pumking for the game. Pretty pumped to try it after reading all the good reviews.
FYI, for any Hoboken residents, Hoboken Vine is down to their last few bottles. They said its been flying off the shelves and they have been through something like 14 cases already.
Glad you dig it. I'll probably have a couple today. Have a Pumking in the fridge too... my liquor store limits two or three per customer they are so popular.
Just tried Weyerbacher, Pumking and Blue Moon. Really enjoying the game! Liked the Southern Tier the best.

Fegley's Devious Imperial Pumpkin is as good as DogFish.
Great way to celebrate a Win!
Had the Weyerbacher and Schafly pumpkins last night. Both very good. Still waiting to try the dogfish head. Southern Tier is also very good, as is the Williamsburg pumpkin ale.
I got an evil genius "pumpkin patch" variety pack. I thought they were all pretty good. Ingredients brewed with are listed as "pumpkin and spices" for two of them and "pumpkin and cocoa" for the third and favorite.
Zeno's menu has about 8 on the menu now if any of you are in SC. I had a couple that were great but for the life of me I can't remember the names......senility creeping in!
I've now tried 3 this season: Southern Tier Pumking, Smutty Nose Pumpkin Ale and Dogfish Punkin.
Rank: Punkin >>> Smutty Nose >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Pumking
I was hoping for better from the Pumking after everything I read on here but it was just too sweet for me. Not my style of beer at all. The Punkin OTOH has the perfect balance of sweet and spice and goes down very easy.
Pumking really does taste like eating pumkin pie. I liked it a lot, but I couldn't have more than one at a time. Can't say the same for a few other ones I've tried. I was also surprised how much I like Blue Moon's pumpkin ale -- expected it to be more generic but it is quite solid.
I picked up some blue moon pumpkin ale and it was pretty good!

This thread led me to buy Pumking and DFH Punkin this afternoon. Both are tops.
The Blue Moon is much better than I expected, also.
IMO, Blue Moon , Pumking and Punkin are all on the sweeter side (which I prefer), but I've had some other pumpkin beers as of late that are not sweet at all. They're not horrible, but after drinking the sweeter stuff, it's hard to like the others.
For those of you that aren't fans of ST Pumking, and don't mind sweeter beers, I understand that draft version is even better than bottle...FYI.

Here are the top 10 pumpkin beers per the BeerAdvocate website

I picked up a sixer of Shipyard Pumpkin at the Wegman's in Leesburg, VA while I was here. Good stuff. Thanks for the recommendation.
