“Pumpkins are, like, in season, bro.”

June 04, 2014

Today I read an article on BuzzFeed titled, What Your Beer Choice Says About You. Over here at Riff Raff Productions, we enjoy many craft beers and ciders. When we travel to all of your cities, we seek out the local stuff. But I found this article particularly interesting and hitting it home with one of our favorite events, The Great Pumpkin Run. It is our baby. It was our very first event and it is our largest series to date. That being said, we take fall pretty seriously (in a fun sort of way). Especially with fall craft beers. This article highlighted a pumpkin beer called Shipyard Pumpkinhead. Here is what they had to say:

“Shipyard Pumpkinhead is just fun. fun. fun. You also get super excited when they bring back Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks every fall.”

“Pumpkins are, like, in season, bro.”

“You are the kind of person who yearns for fall. Screw all other seasons. Fall is the best.”

BuzzFeed, you nailed it. There is something special about pumpkin beers and how they only come around once a year. We recently discovered a bar here in Chicago that had Southern Tier Pumpking on draft for Craft Beer Week and I was all over it. So as you head into your training this fall, take a break to sip on a good fall beer, drink down those Pumpkin Spice Lattes and yearn for some crisp apple cider after the run. Until then, enjoy those shandy and wheat beers in the sun!

And if you are looking for something to help you procrastinate a little longer at work, here you go! What does your beer choice say about you?
