Crabtree Brewing Chunkin Pumpkin Ale review

Crabtree Chunkin Pumpkin AleWhat do you do with several hundred pounds of pumpkin meat? You make pumpkin ale of course. There's news coming from up north here in Greeley, Colorado about a new beer release. Crabtree Brewing has announced that their new Chunkin Pumpkin Ale will be pouring this Friday, October 23rd at the brewery tap room in Greeley. Check out their latest newsletter release below.



Don't miss out on this delicious Fall Brew. Chunkin Pumpkin Ale was made using 66 pie pumpkins... which some wonderful friends of the brewery helped us bake and chunk... The baked pumpkin chunks were placed in the mash along with the grain. Spices and other secrets were added to the boil. Now, sitting in the conditioning tank is 400 gallons of goodness. (I've tasted it... even without carbonation and not being as cold as it will be, it tastes awesome!)

Crabtree Brewing signThis past week, we finally received custom, screen-printed growlers... what better way to start the weekend than with a Crabtree growler filled with Chunkin Pumpkin Ale... for only $10! (Refill price is $8)

And don't forget that Friday is TEACHER FRIDAY!!! $2.50 pints for all you wonderful teachers out there.... (please remember to show your teacher ID to be qualified for the discount)

Have a great rest of your week and we will see you on Friday!
Cheers, Stephanie & Jeff Crabtree

Crabtree Brewing Company tapsUpdate: I stopped by Crabtree Brewing on Friday, October 23rd and picked up a growler of their Chunkin' Pumpkin Ale and tried it for myself. Below is a quick video of my opinion of the brew.

Crabtree Brewing now bottles this brew annually in the late summer and puts them in a handy 4-pack. The beer is so popular that they are now brewing up much larger batches. Look for this brew where ever Crabtree beers are sold.
