Dark and mysterious, the porter-style beer is brewed with fresh local pumpkin from Alderside Farm in Newry. Master brewer Tom Ray combined speciality crystal and chocolate malts with selected spices and English Challenger hops, making this a perfect ale to enjoy by the fire this Autumn.
“With a chill in the air and the darker evenings drawing in, we thought it was high time we crafted an Autumnal ale that would match the flavour profile of the season,” explained Brewery owner Connaire McGreevy, “The result is an expertly-brewed ale at 5% ABV that we’ve named Pumpkin Porter. It’s a warming, distinctive beer with a rich aroma of spice and cinnamon that will hopefully tickle the taste-buds of all those discerning craft ale drinkers out there
“It’s a one-off, limited run brew that’ll be available while stocks last in bars and restaurants across Northern Ireland. Miss it, miss out,” he added.
In addition to seasonal specials, County Down based Mourne Mountains Brewery produces three core beers: Mourne Gold pale ale, Red Trail red IPA and Big Rock wheat beer, available in both draft and bottle.
“Demand for our core products and two previous special brews has been excellent – to date we’ve brewed over 30,000 pints,” Connaire added.
