With Halloween just 20 days away, Arkell’s is celebrating by bringing back its Pumpkin Spiced Ale (4.2% ABV).
The beer is brewed using real pumpkins prepared in the brewhouse, with added spices to produce a devilishly warming, malty beer.
Head brewer, Alex Arkell, has been working hard in the kitchen, carving pumpkins ready to be used in the ale. He said: “We’re incredibly excited to be bringing back one of our favourite brews this year. It’s a lovely ale with a great aroma, and it’s just perfect for a spooky night in or out!
“The pumpkin brings a degree of sweetness, and we’ve spiced up our new brew with a mix of cinnamon and other spices to make a deliciously dark beer worthy of the time of year.
“It’s a time to celebrate the end of summer and harvest, and the beginning of those cosy winter months.”
Arkell’s Pumpkin Spiced Ale will be available at most of the brewery’s nearly 100 pubs across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Hampshire in the run-up to Halloween. Mini-kegs are available from The Grape Grain Warehouse, at Arkell’s Brewery in Kingsdown.
