It’s coming Monday, October 18.
By now you know the story. Pumpkinator was first brewed in 2009 as a part of our Divine Reserve series. It returned as a seasonal a couple of years later, and since then it’s earned two Great American Beer Festival medals, a World Beer Cup medal, and a diehard following. On Monday, October 18, it returns.
Everything is a little over the top with our Imperial Pumpkin Stout, which perversely makes it balanced. Beyond the big malt bill, it has pumpkin (lots of it), molasses, brown sugar and a healthy load of spices. It’s 11.2% ABV, which makes it a dessert by itself or the perfect accompaniment to your holiday meal.
Along with the original, we’re also releasing two special barrel aged versions of Pumpkinator: Aged in Bourbon Barrels and Aged in Bourbon Barrels with Vanilla. At 12.6% ABV, these Buffalo Trace aged beers are even bigger than the original.
Pumpkinator and its variants will be available starting Monday, October 18. (Please note that not every account that is getting Pumpkinator will get it that day – some have other delivery days during the week.) You can find Pumpkinator in 22 oz bottles and on tap at select spots around town. The two barrel aged versions are available in 12 oz bottles.

We will also have a limited number of our Pumpkinator snifter glasses available in our merch area along with our special Pumpkinator long sleeve thermal shirts. Perfect for Halloween!
Please note: Rather than screening Young Frankenstein, we’ll be showing the Astros game on our 16 ft. wide Super Screen. We are not disappointed with this development.
