Pumpkin Beers at Blind Tiger Ale House

October 7, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Blind Tiger Ale House

  281 Bleecker St., New York, NY10014

As American as … pumpkin beer? That’s right, Tigerites — your favorite fall companion has been an American staple long before it became a seasonal fixture of the craft beer scene. In fact, “pumpkin beer and brown sugar were more easily found in early America than their all-malt and refined counterparts, so they became part of the go-to recipe.” You won’t hear us complaining about this American tradition – especially on Wednesday, October 7th, when we’ll be serving up humble pie with Pumpkin Beers.

In the early colonial period, pumpkins were dominant and native. Good malt was hard to come by in those days, forcing colonial beer lovers to get crafty with finding sources of fermentable sugars. Luckily, the meat of the pumpkin replaced malt. Viola! An American tradition was born. Move over, apple pie.

Though the tradition seems to be creeping in a bit early these days (June?!) nothing speaks to changing temperatures and seasonal palates like the orange hue of pumpkin perfection. So, whether you like your pumpkin beer subtle, spicy, or sweet, we’ve got you covered this Wednesday beginning at 3:00pm!
