Hallowe’en is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than by sampling some Ontario Craft Brewed pumpkin beer? In this podcast, Mirella Amato of Beerology explores pumpkin beers, how they are made and which spices they contain. Joining her are Rob Creighton, who brews at the Grand River Brewing, in Cambridge, as well as John Bowden from Great Lakes Brewery.
In the second half of the podcast, John, Rob and Mirella taste the Great Lakes Pumpkin Ale and Grand River Highballer Pumpkin Ale. Taste along, as they then attempt to pair these pumpkin ales with various Hallowe’en candy. Will it work? Is there a Hallowe’en candy for every pumpkin beer?...
