Getting prepped to brew this one more time tomorrow, and I’ve got the sugar pumpkins rockin’ and roastin’ in the oven. A few tweaks here and there but lots more fun to come tomorrow.
I know it’s not that big a deal, since I’ve been doing this for about 2 years now, but LOOK I’M ON A SWEET LIST OF NORTH AMERICAN BEER BLOGS. jealous?
In other words, I’m considering attending this blogger’s conference under the impression that it would be a heck of a swell time.
Mayflower Thanksgiving Ale – Mayflower Brewing, Plymouth, MA – English-style Old Ale aged on toasted American oak
Tripel Karmeliet – Brouwerij Bosteels, Buggenhout, Belgium – Belgian Tripel
Smashed Pumpkin – Shipyard Brewing, Portland, MA – Pumpkin Ale
Innis & Gunn Original – Innis & Gunn, Scotland – Scottish Ale aged in oak barrels
In a word: gimme.
Happy Thanksgiving All!
From my “pipeline” to my palate. Oh, and merry almost Christmas.
