Pumpkin beers have become so popular we are beginning to see special collectible and cellarable versions like 10 Barrel Brewing’s barrel-aged Jamaican Me Pumpkin. 10 Barrel has been brewing a pumpkin beer for a long time but this is only their 2nd in bottles and it’s a 10.4% rum barrel aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale with over a year in the barrels.
According to the brewery: “We had a theory that you could age almost anything in a Jamaican rum barrel and it would taste great so we decided to test that theory with an Imperial Pumpkin Ale. With over a year in the barrels we came to one conclusion: We were right!”
Jamaican Me Pumpkin is the latest beer in 10 Barrel’s annual barrel aged beer release following up 16 Barrels in 2013 and Rye’m or Treason in 2012. Jamaican Me Pumpkin will be available in the coming weeks in all good bottles shops and specialty grocery stores around OR, ID and WA and at the 10 Barrel Bend and Boise pubs.
Perhaps the only keg of Jamaican Me Pumpkin will be on draft at Night and Day of the Living Ales on 10/31 and 11/1.
