“…in matters of taste, swim with the current.”

~ Thomas Jefferson

Pumpkin is the trendy flavor come autumn. You can’t turn your head without seeing something pumpkin. Who are we to ignore the wisdom of Thomas Jefferson? Here at FSBC we decided to put our own spin on the pumpkin ale by using a Belgian yeast to add clove and ester characteristics to roasted local pumpkins and a house blend of pumpkin spices. What we end up with is hearty pumpkin ale like none others that will make you pour out that Frappuccino without hesitation.

History: Pumpkin is believed to have originated in Central America. The oldest pumpkin seeds were found in a Mexican tomb dating back 7000 years. The Aztecs are known to have used the gourd as both ritual offering and food.
