Hello Beer Friends Nation! Happy October 25th!(?) Today the Beer Friends explore a newer fad within the beer community - Pumpkin Ales. Available in the fall season, these beers give a alternative to the traditional Octoberfest beers available inbetween Summer and Winter. We reviewed Blue Point Supreme Pumpkin Ale and Fire Island Pumpkin Barrel Ale to see which was better and why. This is a battle between two New York City area beers, and the Beer Friends have visited Blue Point Brewery but have yet to check out Fire Island Brewery. Pumpkin + Beer! = Pumpkin Beer!
