Warning Homebrewers!  This beer is in direct and willing violation of the German Purity Law known as the Reinheitsgebot.  For those of you with weak or compromised constitutions, we recommend you stop reading right now.

Okay, so for those of you left, you’ll be interested to know that when we confronted our master brewer with the challenge of creating a mouth-watering pumpkin ale married to a classic German Altbier, he raised his fist in the air and declared, “Reinheitsgebot?  I wipe my ass with the Reinheitsgebot!”  Okay, such fiery artistic sensibilities seem a bit extreme, but with the result featuring a palette of velvety malt and discriminating caramel perfectly balanced with noble hop bitterness, all lusciously layered with real pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice, how can you complain?  And when you see Hans and Franz rushing with the defibrillator to resuscitate Herr Kaiser, chief of the Reinheitsgebot Police quivering on the floor, you can raise your pints and proudly toast to the abolishment of good ‘ol boy laws and to many mouthfuls of great taste!


Please note: the recipe kit includes the can of pumpkin.  If you do not need it, you may remove it from the options below.
