Next month, Saint Arnold Brewing Co. will be releasing one of its most popular seasonal beers for the sixth year in a row.
The newest incarnation of the Houston-based brewery’s Pumpkinator, an 11 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 packaged in 22-ounce bottles every year since.
According to a post on Saint Arnold’s Instagram page, 2016 Pumpkinator will be released on Oct. 17.
