If you lived in colonial New England, you would know right away what "pumpkin beers" taste like - sweet, robust, full-bodied, caramel-ly, and earthy with a perfect blend of harvest spices. In those days, beer-loving colonists used pumpkin and squash as their fermenting ingredient. When malt became readily available, pumpkin ales largely disappeared from the landscape ~ that is until the 1990s when American craft brewers reintroduced them to delighted pumpkin beer fans everywhere! Today, you can find a huge selection of some of the most popular and highly-rated seasonal pumpkin beers on the market right here Warwick's own Airport Liquors.
