I've never tried pumpkin beer, but it sounds like it has possibilities.
We used to brew our own and I really liked the fruit based recipes. And? I've got a friend who owns a micro brewery, and he makes this strawberry beer that is just wonderful! But he only makes the stuff in season and because his veddy secret recipe is so time consuming, he charges 8 bucks a glass. Um, for everybody else. grin...
I get mine on the house. Apparently he enjoys my appreciation.
