CBoTB-Southern Tier Pumking!

With Thanksgiving just 13 days away, our thoughts turn to family, friends, football, turkey, pumpkin pie and… beer!

In 2008, I was living in the Philadelphia area and exploring the craft beer world the same way I do now.  One of the places where I bought my beer put together a mixed case of pumpkin ales, including the first release of Pumking from Southern Tier Brewing.  If you’ve hear this Craft Beer on The Bay feature before, you may know that I am a big fan of that beer at this time of the year.

Well, last year, I came across a wonderful… and very funny video featuring Matt Dunn, Southern Tier’s Director of Brewing and Quality.  So with Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie on our minds, I thought you’d enjoy hearing the video, along with a couple comments that I’m going to make to add context to what you’re listening to.

The video starts with Southern Tier’s Matt Dunn sitting at a round table inside the brewery with a pilgrim hat on and a bottle of Pumking, a logoed Pumking glass, and a plate with a slice of pumpkin pie.

Matt is seen with a blindfold on and whipped cream is now on the slice of pumpkin pie.  He swirls the Pumking in the glass and brings it to his nose.

Matt Dunn then takes a nice drink of Pumking and swirls it in his mouth.

Matt takes his fork while blindfolded and stabs the plate until he gets a fork full of pumpkin pie.  Matt is laughing as he puts the pumpkin pie in his mouth.

Matt then takes another drink of Pumking.

Celebrate Fall!  Enjoy a Pumking this weekend!
