Dry Dock Brewing Company Releases 2015 Imperial Pumpkin Ale


AURORA, CO — Pumpkin season is upon us! On Thursday, August 6, Dry Dock Brewing Company will release its famed Imperial Pumpkin Ale at Canoe Room at North Dock at 2pm.

This will be the third year that Dry Dock’s Imperial Pumpkin is packaged in 22-ounce bombers. “This beer is a beefier version of the classic Half Moon Pumpkin Ale,” says Dry Dock’s Director of Brewing Operations Doug Hyndman. “When we brew this beer, the brewery smells like Savory Spice’s pumpkin spice blend for a few weeks.”

This spiced Imperial Pumpkin Ale is Autumn in a glass. Real pumpkin added into the mash brings a rich, smooth base to this copper-colored ale. Saigon and Indonesian cinnamons, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, mace and cloves spark thoughts of all of the gruesome things that make fall such a special time of year. Imperial Pumpkin Ale weighs in at 9 percent ABV and 24 IBU. Pair this beer with roasted turkey, garlic mashed potatoes, spicy chili, and chocolate truffles for dessert.

Imperial Pumpkin Ale will tap at Canoe Room at North Dock on Thursday, August 6 at 2pm. The beer will be available on draft and in 22-ounce bombers through the weekend. Find Imperial Pumpkin Ale at South Dock and in Colorado liquor stores the following week.
