Grandma SueAnn Helps Review More Pumpkin Beers: 2 out of 3 Ain’t So Bad

Grandma SueAnn Helps Review More Pumpkin Beers: 2 out of 3 Ain’t So Bad

Sunday Visit to Grandma SueAnn’s

Within five minutes of arriving at Grandma SueAnn’s house; she smiled and asked if I was ready for pumpkin beer?!

Does a bear sh1t in the woods?  Hell, yes, I want a pumpkin beer!  I almost launched the food and small baby spoon I was using to feed Scarlet with at my Mom’s head.  Instead, I just smiled at her like the wild-eyed maniac that motherhood has turned me into.  She was talking about diving back into the pumpkin beer haul from last Sunday.

(Last week Amy got to spend time with her mom – Grandma SueAnn – and they dived into the first part of their pumpkin beer haul: Pumpkin Beer Review with Grandma SueAnn – Abomination Brewing: Forbidden Pumpkin, Greater Good Brewing: Giant Pumpkin, and Pizza Boy Brewing: Sunny Side Up Double Coffee Pumpkin.)

Diving Back Into the Pumpkin Haul

Nightmare on East Elm Street – a Pumpkin Ale – by Conshohocken Brewing Company

I let Grandma SueAnn pick the glassware, so go ahead and peep on the cute bear glass.  If you think that is silly just wait until we get to beer #2.  Her pick was the Nightmare on East Elm Street, a pumpkin/yam beer, by Conshohoken Brewing Company.  This is a 6.66% ABV…wait a sec, was that done on purpose?  I see what you did there. 

Tamatoa sees what you did there….

NEES has an overall untapped rating of 3.64. It is described as “A seasonal homage to our original brewery in Conshohocken, we bring you Nightmare on East Elm Street Pumpkin Ale.  Brewed with honey malt, pumpkin puree, lactose and spices.  Nightmare on East Elm Street is pumpkin pie in a glass.  This autumn ale is best paired with candy corn.”  We both thought that the pumpkin flavor was pretty light and finished as a pilsner.  A few on Untapped agree.  Maybe one of the other flavors mellowed out the pumpkin flavor?  It was a great light beer and went down very smoothly.

Something Something Pumpkin

Something Pumpkin by Eight & Sand Beer Co.

Without hesitation Grandmas SueAnn is popping up to pick out the second beer.  Again, I let her pick.  It’s fun to watch her read about the beers and get to know which ones she likes and which ones she doesn’t.  I love that I get to split beers with my mom, watch my daughter play and watch football at the same time. 

Grandma SueAnn arranged this beer photography. I think she’s got a future in it.

That first beer was only a 6.66% ABV but Grandma SueAnn is posing the bears with the beer.  I told you to watch out for the pic of beer #2.  Aren’t they cute? She picked the Something pumpkin by Eight and Sand.  This is a pumpkin/yam beer coming in at 6%.  It is described as “Our pumpkin cream ale treats your taste buds to notes of pumpkin pie crust, warm cinnamon, smooth vanilla, and autumn spices.”  SP has an overall rating on 3.90 on Untapped.

We both agreed Something Pumpkin is nice and light but filled with flavor at the same time.  It has a sweet flavor but not the overly sweet some cream ales can have.  Maybe it should have been classified as a cream ale and not a pumpkin/yam beer.

An Untappd review of Something Pumpkin by Eight & Sand Beer Co. by someone on Untappd

Some of us pumpkin lovers don’t settle for subtle fall flavors.

….Some of us being myself and Grandma SueAnn.

Only the best pumpkin, only the most truest of pumpkin flavors for us.

I know you will never believe this, but Grandma SueAnn turned me down to split the 3rd and final beer of the pumpkin beer stash.  She seemed sleepy as Scarlet was keeping her on her toes.  Don’t worry, we will add more seasonal beers to the stash. 

I’m sure this also won’t be the last time you’ll be seeing Grandma SueAnn reviewing some beers with us here on The Beer Thrillers; so please let us (and by extension her) know if you are enjoying her beer reviews. I am getting a kick out of doing these reviews with her and sharing them on our blog.

We are working on a massive project here at The Beer Thrillers. We are creating a map of all of the breweries across the United States. State by state we are adding maps of all of the different states with every brewery in each state. (We will eventually get to the US Territories, as well as the Canadian Provinces, and possibly more countries; as well as doing some fun maps like a map of all the breweries we’ve been to, and other fun maps.) You can find the brewery maps here:

We are also working on a project of creating printable and downloadable PDFs and resources to be able to check and keep track of all of the breweries you’ve been to. So stay tuned for that project once we are finished with the Brewery Maps of the US States.
