October: A Month of Pumpkins; Day 6, Pumpkin Beer

 

Pumpkin Beer

Pumpkin Beer

The Pilgrims were also known to make pumpkin beer. They fermented a combination of persimmons, hops, maple sugar and pumpkin to make this early colonial brew.

Pumpkin Ale is one of the oldest styles to originate in America.  When New England colonists lacked some beer ingredients they turned to what they could find or grow themselves.  In place of malt they used other fermentable sugars like molasses, sweet potato, or pumpkin.  Alas, pumpkin beers weren’t too popular since the pumpkin was used for its sugar alone rather than its flavor.  Today, pumpkins, along with other pumpkin pie spices, are used in addition to malt to create these fall favorites.
