With the cooler temperatures of autumn arriving we always enjoy a good pumpkin ale. Now hitting the marketplace is Pumpkin Patch Ale from Rogue Ales in 750ml bottles and on draft. You can also find Pumpkin Patch Ale at our annual Killer Pumpkin Fest at Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery on Saturday, October 21st.
In making in Pumpkin Patch Ale, Rogue waits until pumpkin harvest at its Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon. These pumpkins are hand picked and then driven across the Oregon Coast Range to Rogue’s brewery in Newport. Using these pumpkins along with some spices makes Pumpkin Patch Ale a perfect fall beer.
“It’s part of the Grow-Your-Own revolution,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce in a statement. “We never understood summer pumpkin beers, they just made no sense to us. Instead, we chose to take the extra time to grow our own pumpkins, so what you’re tasting isn’t something out of a tube, a can or a lab, but real pumpkin, complete with the terroir of the Willamette Valley.”
