Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter | Redhook

Okay something I've been wanting to do is start a craft beer segment. I enjoy a fine beer once in a while. No no, I'm not talking those Natural Lights or Coors Lights. No siree bob. I mean craft beer! Delightfully hand made craft beer. What is craft beer? In short, a microbrewery or craft brewery is a brewery that produces a small amount of beer, aka craft beer. I'm 21+, so I don't know if I'm supposed to give you some sort of warning about underage drinking. Consider that my warning.



Today's beer is Out of Your Gourd Pumpkin Porter from Redhook Ale Brewery. The brewery was established in 1981 in Seattle, WA. These beers should be available in your local grocery store, liquor store, or wherever you buy alcohol from. If not, I'm sorry about that. These bad boys are seasonal! It's all about autumn, baby. 



I've had Redhook before, but once the boyfriend & I spotted these seasonal guys we couldn't resist. The bottle has a cool shape. The packaging is very Halloween-y & has a headless dude holding a jack-o-lantern, as well as a spooky looking tree. Each cap has something different written or drawn under it. You'll have to buy it to see what's under there. ;D



The beer itself is rich dark brown & made with pureed pumpkin. Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, & maple syrup are also added, so you've got yourself a marvelous spiced beer. The Pumpkin Porter is full bodied & goes down smooth. No terrible after taste here. This brew is perfect for those of you who enjoy a good coffee stout. It is 5.80% ABV (alcohol by volume) which is not too shabby. 



Here's my beer selfie! We make a great team, no? I believe these retail at $9.99 which is a fantastic deal for a 6 pack as well as the alcohol content. I recommended trying the Pumpkin Porter if you like seasonal beers, dark beers, or beers that taste kind of like coffee. That's it for this #BrewReview!

Are you a beer fan? Or do you prefer liquor? Or no alcohol at all? Let me know if more beer/food/drink posts interests you. :]

  5. Oooh! Educate me please! We have some friends who are more into beer than we are, but my husband and I enjoy craft beers as well. We've been into third wave coffee and affordable wines for a while, so we know what it means to enjoy a good artisanal beverage ;)

  16. I don't usually like the taste of beer but this kind actually seems good!
    Unfortunately they wouldn't be available in Canada.

  17. Massive fan of beer and especially love craft breweries (though to be called a craft brewery you have to produce something silly like 2 million or under a year, which sounds a lot to me!). I've had beers from Redhood before and I really dig them. Glad you mentioned the label and design, cos that's all a part of it for me too. I've done quite a few beer reviews, part label design, part taste. Do more I'd say!

  19. Sounds delicious. I think a craft beer series is a great idea - I always like new recommendations. You can't go wrong if it has pumpkin in it right! xx
