This week we are having a pumpkin festival from Thursday to Saturday. Smashing Pumpkin Ale is being tapped up on Thursday. I used roasted pumpkin (cooked 3 hours in the oven with brown sugar), Saigon cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and nutmeg, all in the boil with the pumpkin. Then I added some vanilla in the conditioning tank. It came out great!
OG 1.054, 5.4% ABV
We are having a special pumpkin filled menu (see above) Thursday thru Saturday and on Saturday we are having a pumpkin carving contest 12 - 4 all ages!
We are also having a One Year Anniversary party on Saturday, 12/5. Live music all day from noon until 11 pm, various local musicians throughout the day. Special menu that day plus we will unveil a special anniversary beer as well. I'll send more info as we get closer plus our website should be up to date with info as well.
