What a great weekend!
So this weekend was a perfect weekend to be out and about. And by the amount of beer changes that happened this weekend, it looks like a lot of you came on in to the Portsmouth Brewery.
The O’fest, Project X and Pumpkin all kicked this weekend and were replaced with Saison d’Automne, pHunkin and Smuttynose’s Homunculus respectivly.
The Saison d’Autome is a Saison that we brewed with 100# of butternut squash. We were sick of Pumpkin getting all the praise in the fall for the only beer you can make with a gourd. This Saison has really nice body to it from the use of the squash, and a very nice spicy note from the yeast strain used.
The pHunkin is a new beer for us. It is a American sour Pumpkin Ale. I promiuse you that it is unlike any pumpkin ale you have had before. The sour kettle technique gave a very nice fruity tartness up front that mellows as you drink it to a earthy body to the beer. If you are into sour beers, give this one a try.
Suttynose’s Homunculus is a newer big beer from them. It is a hoppy Belgian pale/ipa and you can read all about it here. Make sure to share it with your gnomies!
