Tis the season in Tampa Bay for tasting all of the pumpkin muffins and lattes and beers. If you like pumpkin and you like beer then you need to try the pumpkin beer made by Southern Tier called Pumking.
This beer smells just like pumpkin spice and has a wonderfully balanced flavor. Pumking manages to do this while weighing in at 8.6 alcohol by volume.
You can find this delicious beer at Mr. Dunderbaks http://dunderbaks.com/ and also at Wood Fired http://www.wood-firedpizza.com/ and also at the very popular Mandarin Hyde http://www.mandarinhide.com/
Pumking was created as an ode to Puca, a creature of Celtic Folklore.
With the spicy aroma and deep copper color as you take the first magical sip your taste buds will let you know you have made a great discovery!
This beers slogan reads "brewed with pagan spirit yet should be enjoyed with responsibility"
A couple of other pumpkin brews worth mentioning are: Out of your Gourd, and also the pumpkin beer out for the season by Blue Moon.
These yummy pumpkin treats can usually only be found in October and November, so get them while you can.
