PORTLAND, MAINE – To fill consumer demand for Shipyard Signature Series Smashed Pumpkin beer, Shipyard Brewing Company has released its award-winning Smashed Pumpkin in 4-packs. This beer will hit the shelves this month in markets nationwide. Smashed Pumpkin is also available in 22oz. bottles and on draft.
Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin is a big-bodied beer with a light coppery orange color and pleasing aromas of pumpkin and nutmeg. The Pale Ale, Wheat and Light Munch malts combine with the natural tannin in pumpkin and the delicate spiciness of hops to balance the sweetness of fruit.
Malt: Wheat, Pale Ale, Light Munich
Hops: Willamette, Hallertau
Smashed Pumpkin pairs well with sharp cheeses, nuts, lamb, hearty stews and desserts like flan, pumpkin pie and Fig Newtons. Chefs find this an excellent beer to cook with in dishes such as braised short ribs.
This beer won Grand Champion and Best of the Northeast in the 2012 United States Beer Tasting Championships and took home bronze medals from the Australian International Beer Awards in 2011 and 2012.
