Boulevard Brewing Co. (Kansas City, Missouri) recently announced that they are prepared to bring even more funk this fall with the release of Funkier Pumpkin.
Boulevard Brewing officially released their first Pumpkin Beer last year with the emergence of Funky Pumpkin, a “soured ale that focused on traditional pumpkin pie spices with pumpkin flavor taking a bit of a backseat.” Based on the success of Funky Pumpkin, the brewers at Boulevard are taking things to another level with the creation of Funkier Pumpkin. This new limited release offering is a Spiced Sour Ale with Brettanomyces added to create a brew boasting “a balanced array of pumpkin pie spices . . . punctuated by funky, forest floor notes.” Nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and allspice are all present in this one but “no single spice dominates before giving way to a slight pumpkin flavor that transitions into pleasant, refreshing tartness.” An 8.5% ABV and touch of cinnamon finishes this brew off with a bit of lingering heat.
Funkier Pumpkin officially released in the Kansas City, Missouri area on August 9th. Alabama, Florida and the rest of Boulevard Brewing’s distribution area that normally sees limited release offerings from the brewery can expect to find 750 ml bottles of Funkier Pumpkin on craft beer shelves in the coming weeks. Prost!
