BC Beer Baron #283 – Prohibition Harvest Pumpkin Spiced Ale

Each month, as part of this 366-day BC craft beer extravaganza that I will be sharing with you throughout 2016, I will highlight a specific style or theme of beers for a whole week of articles. The season of pumpkin-spiced everything is upon us… and things are no different in the craft beer world. Let’s see what BC has to offer for fans of the flavour.

I came across this beer from Prohibition Brewing a few months back, while stocking up on products for a weekend in Kelowna. After all, one has to cleanse the palate after days spent visiting Okanagan Valley wineries!

The beer has a decent amount of pumpkin flavour, but I was hoping for more notes of spice, expecting a pumpkin pie tasting experience. At 5.5% ABV and 9 IBUs, the brewery hoped to make a “refreshing fall brew that delivers the perfect blend of warmth and fall flavour without making every session feel like Halloween.”

The fall seasonal is available in bomber-sized bottles, if you can find it. Given the company hasn’t updated their website or Facebook and Twitter accounts since late 2014/early 2015, who knows how this brew came into my possession.

Prohibition used to have a tasting room located mere blocks away from the Sip Advisor headquarters, but unfortunately it was a slightly hidden spot and it closed a few years back. Mrs. Sip and I did visit on a couple occasions and enjoyed our tasting flights.
