Southern Tier Pumking vs Pumking



Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin, PUMPKIN! It seems like every year the flavors of fall begin their spicy, sticky and sweet barrage on our taste buds closer and closer to beach season. Some people have called this slide into lunacy “Seasonal Creep” but we prefer to tag it with a what we feel is a more apro poe, Seasonal Sleaze.

That is right, Seasonal Sleaze. Pumpkin this and pumpkin that “season” is like a reeeeaaaalllllyyyy drawn out Shark Week where people go around telling anybody within earshot how much they loooovvvveee pumpkin. “Oh have you had the new pumpkin spiced latte at Suck a Ducks?”, no we haven’t but are sure you will fill us in. “Did you try the spicy pumpkin crusty holes from Dumpy Donuts?”, nah kid we don’t eat those but it sure looks like you enjoy them. This onslaught of spiced and iced goods lasts quite a long time and while people do seem to enjoy these “treats” we’d say it has nothing to do with pumpkin at all. In reality what do they love? They love sugar and spice and whatever tastes nice. These people do not actually love pumpkin or the flavor of pumpkins (or sharks for that matter) they love sweet, sugary shit. When they order a pumpkin beer they make sure they get a full brown rim job every time loads with spices and sugar. keep reading...

On Second Thought… Southampton Publick House WILL Release Their Russian Imperial Stout in 2013!!!


UPDATE: There are 450 bottles (750 ml) available for sale at the brewery. The brewmaster Evan Addario wanted to keep this hush, hush so those that frequent Southampton Publick House could grab some bottles. He didn’t want all of them to go to people who just show up when “rarities” are available. Head over to the brewery to get a bottle (2 bottle limit per person). Most importantly visit Southampton more frequently as Evan says he puts up one-offs often.

You may have read somewhere that Southampton Publick House would not be putting out their Russian Imperial Stout in 2013. Okay, it was here at Beer Loves Company where you may have read that. Well it seems that was a fib, or at least let’s say a glitch in the Matrix. keep reading...
