The King Is Back!

It’s my favorite time of year for beer and all because of this delicious autumn seasonal. This is fall at it’s finest. I just cannot get enough. Southern Tier Brewery of Lakewood, NY has grown to produce more than 60,000 barrels of beer annually. Founders Phineas DeMink and Allen “Skip” Yahn started the brewery in 2002. Since then, have created some of the most unique and thirst quenching beers on the market. Their dessert beer line is an especially popular choice on our shelves. Who could dream of such palate pleasers like Choklat, Creme Brulee, or Plum Noir? But the “KING” is my absolute favorite and for many reasons. Just the pure smell upon opening gives aromas of fresh pumpkin pie, cinnamon, and nutmeg. And each sip leaves you wanting another. The 22 oz. bomber is the perfect package for sharing, or like myself, selfishly enjoying alone. For the ultimate treat, pour Pumking into a tall glass with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Best beer float of your life. Hail to the “KING”!

I will take this over a pumpkin spiced latte any day.
