This is BreweryScout’s first Beer Friday, a new feature where we pick a beer for the coming weekend that is an interesting new (to us) beer, good seasonal beer, or a good session beer that you can enjoy while relaxing on your patio. In honor of Halloween, which we have just passed and the coming Thanksgiving holiday we have selected Maverick’s Pumpkin Harvest Ale for the weekend.
Pumpkin Harvest is made by Half Moon Bay Brewing Company, which is located in the city of the same name, Half Moon Bay, California
While Maverick’s Pumpkin Harvest Ale the beer is a Pale Ale it does not taste like any pale ale I have ever had. It is made with the famous Half Moon Bay pumpkins and a blend of spices, to give the beer a flavor with a the hint of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin Harvest Ale tastes like a pale ale crossed with half of a Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte, which I know sounds terrible, but it is not, and this beer is worth a try.
