  2. There are many variations, but basically exactly what it says - beer, usually ale, brewed with pumpkin for flavour!

    Some add "Thanksgiving" spices typical to the season (cinnamon which is used in pumpkin pie is the most common), some just the pumpkin.

    My favourites avoid the spices, but there are some with gentle spicing that are quite nice:

  3. As you can see, the Black Creek Pioneer Brewery has sadly abandon bottles in favour of the undeniably non-pioneer tin can:

    Autumn is finally being felt in the air and around town...

  5. What you folks call "autumn" we Californians refer to as "fire season". There are currently 33 active wildfires throughout the state; at least 17 people have been killed in northern California alone, and experts are still trying to determine the numbers of properties damaged. Almost every year Malibu Canyon (which is in southern California) catches fire, and news crews always find at least one resident who says, "Oh, we love living here. We're going to rebuild." :rolleyes: It must be nice to lose everything you own every year, and still have the means to replace it. o_O

    Thank you for all of these. I must try this beer next time I'm in North America for Thanksgiving - your Thanksgiving, MisterCairo, is coming soon I think and I wish you a very happy one!

    I love a good Pumpkin Ale, just one or two though in a single sitting...a bit sweet for anything more than that. My fall and more so winter warmer is this guy:

    Interesting that it's described as Stout. Also Comstock is a well-known name. I like the look of it.

    At 9% ABV you'd think it would be more of a sipper...but the pleasantly mild carbonation makes it really easy to drink. And you suddenly look over at your father in law, who drinks Budlight and realize he's had 12 beers to your six but it's you with the incredibly heavy eyelids after dinner...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  11. Interestingly, we have a pumpkin stout out now (yes, it comes in a GLOW IN THE DARK CAN). It is good, but quite sweet and I can handle one every so often only!

  15. I ride my bicycle to release stress from work.
    Today I took a cue from the sign on the left to enjoy the colors before the Autumn hits.

    What's with all the nails on the telephone pole? I remember one in Santa Barbara that woodpeckers had stuffed full of acorns.

    The leaves have just about peaked this season. I give it to Halloween when we'll see the most color.
