OTTAWA, ON – Big Rig Brewery has announced the release of an autumn seasonal that uses the ubiquitous pumpkin flavour as a starting point, but moves into a darker area than most pumpkin ales.
Tales From The Patch Pumpkin Porter is described as follows:
Tales From The Patch is a chocolate-hued pumpkin porter that uses real pumpkins the brew team picked from Miller’s Farm in Manotick, ON. “We came back to the brewery and spiced and baked them, then put the roasted pumpkin right into the brew,” Lon Ladell, Big Rig Brewery brewmaster, explains. Vanilla beans and creamy milk sugar were also added to create a rich, smooth porter that mimics the fresh, cozy nature of the fall season.
Tales From The Patch is available now at the Big Rig brewpub and brewery locations in Ottawa, and at select beer bars in Ontario, while supplies last.
