Rogue Ales & Spirits released its annual, award-winning Pumpkin Patch Ale in a new 16-ounce can. Pumpkin Patch Ale is made with real, whole pumpkins from a local farm in Independence, Ore. The pumpkins were chopped and roasted by hand. The hand roast caramelizes the natural sugars, which when combined with a delicate balance of spices, creates the signature flavor of this classic fall-themed brew, the company says. “This beer is typically released later in the season since we use real pumpkins, but fans have been requesting an earlier release and we listened,” said Jack Waibel, vice president of production. “Instead of waiting until September when the pumpkins are ready to harvest, we purchased real pumpkins from a local farm in 2020 and froze them so we could brew Pumpkin Patch Ale a little earlier this year. This beer is the same world-class product that it has always been in a rad, new 16-ounce can.” Available from August through October, Pumpkin Patch Ale is sold in four-packs of 16-ounce as well as on draft in various locations.
