Brew Dude – The Breuery – Autumn Maple

In the long line of bizarre beers I have reviewed, this is one of the hardest to describe. This quote from the website explains why, “Brewed with 17 lbs. of yams per barrel (in other words, a lot of yams!), this autumn seasonal is a different take on the “pumpkin” beer style. Brewed with cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, vanilla, molasses, and maple syrup, and fermented with our traditional Belgian yeast strain, this bold and spicy beer is perfect on a cold autumn evening.” Ok, I want you to read that two or three times and tell me what you think. I, frankly, was as flummoxed as you were. Is it good? It is delicious; it tastes like a sweet potato pie. The beer world in America is starting to push the limits of the beverage. While traditional American brewers tend to follow the German style (and the brewing laws) the new American microbrewing revolution has turned to the French and the Belgian. The Breuery has merely gone that next step and made a distinctly American beer and it is wonderful.

Enjoy.
