southern tier pumking imperial pumpkin ale

Southern Tier Pumking is back (and reportedly has been since July 12th)

Remember when Sam Adams tweeted a picture of a bottle of their Summer Ale in the snow back in March? Not surprisingly, their Oktoberfest hit market the same week we suffered from an oppressive string of 90+-degree days. Bottled-on dates on the first batch of Southern Tier Pumking to hit New York City were in early July, meaning they started brewing their fall seasonal in June.

Of note, an Instagram photo from the Tap 42 bar on July 12th says that “fresh” 2013 Pumking made its debut then.

  1. Just got some this past Wednesday here in Indiana, bottled 7-22-13. It is WAY TOO EARLY for pumpkin beers. Schlafly’s Pumpkin is out, as well as New Holland’s Ichabod and New Belgium’s Pumpkick.
