(Pittsburgh, PA) – Block House Brewery, the region’s newest beer brand, has been a witness to Pittsburgh’s rich history for several decades. Located in the heart of Lawrenceville this was a structure built to last; surviving the civil war, prohibition, and the great flood of 1936. And, when it comes to beer, the Block House team channels the same methodical approach into “building” every brew just right; hence the release of its newest “Block House Brewing Pumpkin Ale.”
This medium-body ale pours a glowing golden-orange color with subtle reddish shading, and enchants the nose with a wallop of graham cracker crust, ginger snap cookies, and subtle notes of brown sugar. The boldness of the 7.0% ABV is hidden beneath layers of creamy vanilla, hearty nutmeg and a hint of caramel that when blended together creates a homemade pumpkin pie taste.
“We know we aren’t the first to make a Pumpkin Ale but we wanted to take our time and do it the right way. We spent months sampling and taste testing with our award winning Brewmaster until we felt confident that we captured the true flavor of fall and the traditional taste of homemade pumpkin pie,” said Brian Walsh, CEO of Pittsburgh Brewing Company. Block House Brewing Pumpkin Ale is on sale now and available at local beer distributors and bars across western Pennsylvania.
