There’s something in the air around this time of year. The chill returns and your sweatshirt collection magically multiplies when frackets start getting left at your parties. It’s fall time! Another turning of the season full of football, Uggs….. and pumpkin. A whole lot of pumpkin.While every basic sorority girl will be picking up their PSL from Starbucks, the beers are changing flavors as well. Gone are the fruity summer beers. With plenty of new options to pick from, which are pretenders and which are for real?

Look no further than Shipyard Pumpkinhead. The Pumpkinhead is a smooth golden ale with just the right amount of pumpkin flavor. Break it out at your Oktoberfest parties or tailgates. This is one basic beer you do not want to miss out on.
