Pumpkin IPA’s Do Exist!

As the days grow shorter and the temperatures start to drop, Fall feelings start to fill the air. To me, there is something magical about the Fall season and one of my things is enjoying pumpkin-infused treats. Over the past year, I have grown to love a well crafted, juicy IPA and now that Autumn is upon us, I want to pair my love for pumpkins with my love for IPAs. This got me wondering, do pumpkin IPA’s exist?

A quick search on Instagram proved that they do exist but in very small numbers. I saved you the time of searching for this unicorn of beer and I placed the best ones that I found on Instagram in this post, to save you some time. I hope this is helpful and if you have more knowledge of Pumpkin IPA’s, hit me up on my personal Instagram.

Keep an eye out for part two of this blog, I’m going to try to get my hands on some cans and I will let you know my review.

If I missed a Pumpkin IPA, let me know!
