This year, Saint Arnold Brewing Co.’s popular pumpkin seasonal beer will be back for a seventh time.
The newest incarnation of the Houston-based brewery’s Pumpkinator 2017, a 10.5 percent ABV “imperial pumpkin stout” brewed with pale two row, caramel and black malts, as well as cascade and liberty hops. The beer also includes pumpkin, molasses, brown sugar and various spices to “make it feel like you just walked into your mom’s kitchen while she was cooking 37 pumpkin pies.”
Pumpkinator was originally released in 2009 as part of Saint Arnold’s Divine Reserve Series. It was given the Pumpkinator moniker in 2011, and has been released as a fall seasonal in October packaged in 22-ounce bottles every year since.
According to a label filed with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), Pumpkinator 2017 will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles. An email sent to the brewery for additional information was not immediately returned.
