The ancient ritual of brewing a distinctly rich and flavorful beer is a performance to behold. Our mysterious melange of time-honored ingredients harmonize with chaotic chemistry, humble patience, and blind faith to create unique beer to share in the rousing company of kindred spirits. Cheers! 

Pumpkin Pie Lust
Pumpkin Weisse Beer
New Glarus Brewing Company
Employer Owned
New Glarus, WI

Label revelations:
No ABV info
12 FL. OZ.
It is a fact that Dan, our New Glarus Brewmaster, loves pumpkin pie. So it was inevitable that one day beer and pie would collide. No holiday is complete at our home without home baked pumpkin pie. Just as Dan once baked this pie for Deb, he now created this brew for you.
First, Wisconsin grown wheat simmers with fresh Wisconsin Pumpkin and German Munich Malt. Then he thoroughly stirs in Idaho grown Celeia Hops, Fresh Bavarian Weizen yest is then ladled into the open top fermenters and a final bottle conditioning make this beer 100% naturally carbonated. This rich brown Weisse beer pours an elegant spicy nose with a thick creamy head. This Pumpkin Weisse is meant to satisfy your soul's Pie Lust.
Cheers! Daniel Carey and Deborah Carey
