Pump-KING for Halloween | Pub Date

Hello there! It’s Friday!! Hooray! We are also more than halfway to Halloween, which I will admit is not a favorite holiday of mine. I’m more into autumn decor than ghosts and goblins but I understand that some love it more than Christmas and Santa. Gasp! (Just kidding.) In the spirit of All Hallows’ Eve, […]

Lucy - This is so fun! I love a good seasonal brew & in fact the man and I recently had a pumpkin beer tasting. We drank Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale, Shocktop Pumpkin Wheat, New Belgium Pumpkick (our fave) and Amer. Orig. Pumpkin Ale. I have to say that after awhile they all blend together haha.

The Southampton sounds really yummy! I hope I can find it here. Great tip about the cinnamon rim too.

Happy fall reading and drinking 🙂

Jess @ Gone with the Words - This will be my first year having pumpkin beers and I have grabbed a couple different ones to do a taste test. I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS! I hope the ones I picked are good because if not I’ll be very sad, lol.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - YES, those are exactly the kinds of pumpkin beers I like too! I first saw the title and I was like “Pumking!?!?” because that one tasted really alcohol-y to me BUT I realized it was a cute little play on words there with Stephen King. Excellent!
I agree. I actually haven’t really tried too many imperials because I know I won’t like them. The cans that I grabbed for my pumpkin taste test actually turned out to be pretty good once I got the taste of Pumking out of my mouth haha — but I agree. I like the good blend of spices but subtle flavors. A good balance!

I REALLY want to read this book. It sounds so interesting and it’s been on my TBR for a looooong time (like, almost since I joined Goodreads which is apparently like four years by now). I’m glad to see your recommendation! I really need to make time for it sometime!

Em M - I am a SUCKER for all the things pumpkin – especially pumpkin beer. I also have a tendency to put pumpkin spice on EVERYTHING during the month of October 🙂 Peanut butter toast, my coffee, my oatmeal, etc. I’m reading The Shining by Stephen King right now and it is scaring my socks off. Enjoy your pumpkin beer this weekend!

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - Hi Estelle! I WISH I loved Pumpkin-flavored things! This makes me feel so silly around this time of year because not only do I not like pie and lattes, I don’t love the beer…EXCEPT just last weekend I found a fall seasonal pumpkin-flavored that I actually liked enough to BUY if I could find it at a store! It’s the Erdinger Oktoberfest and the reason that I love it is because it is based off of their Hef style and OMG it is delicious. It was a joyous occasion when I could actually claim a seasonal brew that I like since Mike LOVE LOVE LOVES them so much! Not sure if you’ve ever tried this brand but if you can find it, please do! Also, it’s a crime that I’ve not seen Hocus Pocus, right? I think probably so.
