Magic Hat Brewing Releases First-Ever Pumpkin Beer

Ripe with flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and caramel hops, this new beer signals the coming of chilling frosts and ghastly screams. Wilhelm Scream boasts 5.4% ABV and 20 IBUs and finishes the same way summer does, with just a hint of bitterness.
