The annual release is hotly anticipated by mid-Atlantic beer lovers, and this year, it will coincide with the full moon on 9/6. In addition, Pumpkin Ale will be packaged in a completely new 16-oz can design, with seasonal and playful nods to Halloween and the fall season, including foreboding pumpkins and spooky nightscapes.

Pumpkin Ale is a medium-bodied copper ale; malty sweet, with balancing bitterness and brewed with real pumpkin, it is spiced with traditional pumpkin pie spices and vanilla instead of finishing hops. The seasonal brew will be available while supplies last in draft pints and growlers at all Iron Hill locations, as well as in 4-packs of 16-oz. cans.

The can features a new, festive and seasonal design from Pittsburgh, PA’s Smith Brothers Agency, a fun departure from the classic orange cans of past years. Other collaborations between the brewery and the firm have included Rising Sun IPA, Crusher, Mahalo, Apollo!, Ore House IPA and Vienna Red Lager.

Pumpkin Ale Events

Iron Hill has long embraced pumpkin as a harbinger for the fall and their brewpubs celebrate with festive and fun events throughout the harvest season. They first brewed their traditional Pumpkin Ale as a companywide offering in 2010; and, in 2015, Iron Hill added it to their seasonal can lineup.
