Halloween Beer: Cambridge Brewing Company Great Pumpkin Ale

Halloween Beer RecommendationIn honor of today being Halloween, I thought I’d recommend my second favorite pumpkin beer, Cambridge Brewing Company‘s Great Pumpkin Ale.

This beer is quite different from my top favorite pumpkin beer, Southern Tier Pumpking, except that like Pumpking, Great Pumpkin is recognizably pumpkin-flavored. It’s a lighter, less boozy beer than Pumpking, more an ale style. Whereas Pumpking is a post-dinner, sipping beer, you could enjoy pints of Great Pumpkin with your meal or after a 5k (which I was recently able to do).

Cambridge Brewing Company, as the name suggests, is in Cambridge, MA, and distributes its beers in New England, and, for some reason, Kansas. You can see if a bar near you carries CBC beers by using the finder on their website. If you live in the Boston area, you will also see CBC beers in your local beer case.
