Just when I thought there wasn't enough variety in the pumpkin beer world for me, I stumbled upon this unique brew from Cape Ann Brewing Company. Imagine your favorite stout with a little pumpkin and spice. Â Cape Ann came out with something a little different this year and I think they chose the right route. Their Imperial Pumpkin Stout is made with real pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and all spice. This brew is truly something else and has opened a new realm of pumpkin beers for me to experience. The roastiness of the stout blends so well with pumpkin and spices, its as if they were always meant to be together.
Cape Ann, as well as Brooklyn'sÂ Sixpoint,Â have come out with some out the box pumpkin beers this year and I can't thank them enough for breaking "the norm" stereotype for this seasonal brew. I just hope other breweries take note and continue to think outside the box for next fall.
