CRAFTY SIPS | A New Thanksgiving Beer

Thanksgiving is a time for sharing.
Sharing an awesome pumpkin porter.

Recently Erin and I shared a limited batch pumpkin mix pack.  The beer was a collaboration job by 21st Amendment and Elysian Brewing Companies called "He Said" that included two Belgian-Style Triples brewed with pumpkin and two Baltic Porters with Pumpkin.  

I will preface this by saying that my love of Porters has been vastly growing. I love them, I'm obsessed with this year's batch of Long Ireland Chocolate Porter and now I have a new beer to add to the list. With the good comes the bad and I will admit, I was not crazy about the Belgian Triple Ale.  It was slightly too bitter in the finish, which I like sometimes - but not with pumpkin beers.  I look for a smooth body and slightly sweet finish with a great pumpkin beer and with that the porter took home the bacon!

I now only wish I could buy solo packs of the He Said Baltic Pumpkin Porter and hoard it up to have all winter.  Yes, it was that delicious.    

So, with tomorrow's holiday be sure to share the love and the beer.  I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and gets to spend with people they care most about.
