October 2010 Newsletter

October - what a great month. Baseball is in full swing (Pun intended), Football is on all day Sunday and Hockey has started for the 15 people in each city who watch it. Leaves are changing color and in most parts of the country the temparature becomes a little cooler.

All that is great, but our favorite part of October is the Beer, Octoberfest and Halloween celebrations that take place this time of the year in every city across this great country.

A few beers that really caught our eye this month are:

  • Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin - Smashed Pumpkin is a big-bodied beer with a light coppery orange color and pleasing aroma of pumpkin and nutmeg. To fully enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best served cold but not freezing. Smashed Pumpkin pairs well with sharp cheeses, nuts, lamb, hearty stews and desserts like flan or pumpkin pie. Chefs find this an excellent beer to cook with in dishes such as braised short ribs.
  • Dogfish Head Punkin Ale - Punkin' Ale is a full-bodied, spiced brown ale brewed with baked pumpkins, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar. Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale is named after the annual Punkin' Chunkin Festival held near Lewes, Delaware the weekend after Halloween.
  • Atwater Blocktoberfest - Octoberfest is a German tradition that celebrates harvest. Now Atwater carries on the tradition with our own special lager "Blocktoberfest". Brewed with 100% German malt for a rich taste and amber color.
