As we ramp up for Halloween season, we all await anxiously our pumpkin beers and for the leaves to turn orange, the smell of fireplaces as we walk down the streets in the cool fall air. Heavy Seas Beer, out of Maryland, makes one of the next pumpkin beers we’ve ever had, and it looks like we’ll be able to get it on shelves soon!

BALTIMORE, MD — The “Uncharted Waters” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2016 edition of The Great’er Pumpkin. This limited release will be available from September – October in all 17 states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.

The Great’er Pumpkin pours a rich, deep burnished orange color with a thick white head. Aromas of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and clove give this brew a great aromatic complexity, while British crystal malt, brown sugar, and pumpkin add a sense of weight and body. Bourbon barrel aging rounds out its flavors with notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. A beer not to be missed!The product specs are:
