Heavy Seas Releases The Great’er Pumpkin


BALTIMORE, MD — The “Uncharted Waters” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2015 edition of The Greater Pumpkin. This limited release will be available from September – October in all 18 states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed.

The Great’er Pumpkin pours a rich, deep burnished orange color with a thick white head. Aromas of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and clove give this brew a great aromatic complexity, while British crystal malt, brown sugar, and pumpkin add a sense of weight and body. Bourbon barrel aging rounds out its flavors with notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. A beer not to be missed!
