Finding The Pumpkin King

October is here, and that means the reign of the pumpkin has begun. Many of us will be eating pumpkin pie in the coming months, or maybe seeds from our jack o lanterns. But there are some who desire more pumpkin, and they get it through beer.

Andrew Schmitt is a bit of a beer expert. He is a home brewer, works at Anchorage’s specialty shop La Bodega and is cicerone certified.It basically means he’s a sommelier of beer.

I’ve selected five pumpkin beers that Andrew will taste blind. Afterwards, he will crown the king of the pumpkin beer. See which brew he crowns pumpkin king.
