While I live in on the edge of a valley, surrounded by my favorite blue hills, I work near Asheville, a city often called “beer city USA.” I know many people are counting down the days to their first pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, I am keeping my eyes open for my favorite pumpkin beer. Not overly sweet or syrupy like many, not a simple cinnamon note, but rather the earthy and out right spicy brew, Voodoo Ranger Atomic Pumpkin crafted by New Belgium. Pairs perfectly with a handful of potato chips or preferably, a walk in the woods or sitting in the rocking hair on the back porch watching the sunset while the kids are a play practice.
And no, this isn’t an ad, but probably should be. Are you listening, New Belgium?
