Thanks, Greg! A bit heavy on the pumpkin brews for my liking, but oh well.
Interesting that 6/7 are higher than normal ABV, including two 9% big boys. Something tells me "drunk" will be a popular costume this year... :lol:

I'm happy to see the ST Pumking back, that was one of my favorites from last year.

Not that I've heard.

It's not listed for the Hallowe'en release, which suggests that it wasn't submitted or approved for LCBO listing this year. They might do it for brewery sales, though.

Whoops that's actually 20¢ cheaper a bottle than first released. 2.90. I'm just glad it's back!

One of my favorite go-to IPAs.

Wow, a wee jump in price (up $.80 / bottle) but I'm just glad it's back!

Damn, I got all excited when I saw it listed in the recent issue of Food & Drink as $11.60 for a six-pack.

Just had one of last years Pumking release and it's nice, much of the pumpkin has dropped out leaving more Graham cracker and spice, I liked it.

Interesting how tastes are different. I really liked the Great Lakes Pumpkin. Liked the Grand River too, but thought the GL was a tad better.

The only other pumpkin beer I've tried has been Post Road; found it a bit overwheming in the spice.

Shipyard Pumpkin is now listing at $7.30 rather than $8.95. I dont know which is correct, still buying it though.
