The various liqueur stores tell me it's their most popular pumpkin beer. It's the only one that actually tastes like actual pumpkin pie in a glass.

Now we're talking. I like the brand a lot esp their IPA and 2XIPA(8.3% alc I think?). Price is reasonable also. Southern Tier opened a few restaurant locations here in the CLE area that get good reviews. Years ago I tried a few pumpkin beers and didn't care for them at all. So kind of gave up on them. However willing to give the ST version a shot. Esp if I go to one of their restaurants and maybe ask for a sample.

Yeah, pumpkins are for eating, not brewing. I'll have a good stout by Stone Brewing smile

A beer now and than will have no effect on either in my opinion. I myself living a extremely healthy lifestyle tracing everything a beer or drink now and then have no effect on numbers but everybody’s different.

I'm a huge beer guy and absolutely love nearly each and every style out there... Except for Pumpkin and Christmas Ales. I can tolerate them, but it's more of a one and done (maybe two) for an entire year.

That being said, Troeg's out of Hershey, PA makes a nice Belgian-style one called "Master of Pumpkins", brewed with a saison yeast. That is quite nice. Not too sweet, not overly spicy (the biggest flaw in most).

Pumpkin actually does little to nothing for flavor for a beer. Many breweries don't even use pumpkin in the pumpkin beers they do, simply just using spices (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger) to obtain that flavor. Pumpkin is difficult to work with in the brewhouse for little to no value to the final beer, aside from saying they put it in.

Lots of people love these beers though, that's for sure. Some of the highest rated ones, if you can find...

Pumpkinator - Saint Arnold Brewing Company (Texas)

Good Gourd - Cigar City (Tampa)

Pumpkin Ale - Schlafly (St. Louis)

Pumpkin Ale - Alewerks (Virginia)

Pumpking - Southern Tier (NY) - Probably one of the easiest to find all over.
