Beer of the Month delivery arrives! This is the eighth month that I have received one and they all have been fun. Seems that our cats, Morgan and Crumpet, somehow managed to save up enough money from somewhere to get a subscription to this for my birthday.
The first six packages all contained three beers of two different styles form two breweries. A dozen a month. Last month and this month that changed to four beers of one style from three different breweries. Again, a dozen in all.
So, what did I receive this month?
From the newsletter:
Fall brews are traditionally more flavourful and more substantial than summers brighter quenchers, offering a mouth-feel that leans more towards the creamy side of the beer spectrum. Colours get deeper and flavours get toastier as the tastes of the harvest table call out for malty partners.
This month we are pleased to showcase a pair of limited edition, seasonal offerings along with a beautiful, hand-crafted blonde ale.
I love the name of the first one, Pissed Off Pete's Pumpkin Porter from Nickel Brook Brewing. Adding pumpkin to a porter should be very interesting. Next up is a Pumpkin 3.14 from Taps Brewhouse in Niagara Falls. The blonde ale is Farmhouse Blonde Ale from Maclean's Brewing. That will be a nice change of pace from the pumpkin.
You see, pumpkins have more uses than just making jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin pie!
