With over 11 pounds of pumpkin added to every barrel of this imperial porter, this beer has a smooth, velvety rich texture. Sweet pumpkin notes are cut by an undercurrent of smoke, with hints of spice and brown sugar rounding out each sip.

History

This Alaskan Brewing take on a colonial American tradition is perfect for autumn and Thanksgiving, as here in Alaska we see the nights get longer and colder and can find comfort in the richness of this brew.

The Story Behind the Label

Alaska is home to some of the world’s largest cultivated
vegetables, squashes, gourds and pumpkins. The long daylight hours in the summer promote fast growth, and prompt fierce competition amongst the farmers of the Matanuska-Susitna Valley, who converge on the Alaska State Fair with their gigantic prize produce in the quest to be crowned State Fair champion. It’s a common sight at the fairgrounds in Palmer to see a pickup truck barely able to contain the huge pumpkins they haul to the competition, which can weigh in at more than 1,200 pounds.
