This quick post is simply for the benefit of fellow Alehead Professor pH Lager.  The good Prof mentioned during one of our Maltercations an affinity for a beer from Shipyard that I’ve never been able to get my hands on – The Smashed Pumpkin.  Being that I have no idea how to do a re-post, trackback, or any other blog-related cool thingy to bring to light an awesome post on the interwebs, I figured I’d just pop the link right here.  To read about this annual release from Shipyard Brewing out of Portland, Maine please go visit fellow bloggers at The Full Pint.  I’ve been checking out their blog for a couple months as they have some of the most up to date, informative, and just really freakin’ cool info that you’ll find on the craft industry.  If you like our biased, cynical, overly opinionated posts then their website might not be for you.  If you like good beer though and need something else to read other than our useless crap, do yourself a favor and check out



  1. I loved this beer! Much better than a typical pumpkin beer, and it really stands up without the gimmicky pumpkin label. As with most good pumpkin beers, the pumpkin flavor is actually rather subtle — spices dominate the palate when you drink it. Remember — wine doesn’t taste like grapes, good pumpkin beer doesn’t taste entirely like pumpkins! Try this one if you get a chance.

  2. Just tried this last weekend. Perfect fall beer while watching some foosball. Probably one of the best pumpkin beers I’ve ever had, I would say.
