US: Pumpkin ale to return in A-B seasonal range
Anheuser-Busch is to bring back Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale this autumn as it launches a range of seasonal beers for a second year.
The US brewing giant launched the beers last year to tap into growing demand for craft beers and to encourage the matching of beer with food.
This year, Jack's Pumpkin Spice Ale will be available in bottles as well as on draught, the brewer said yesterday (13 September).
"We already knew Jack's was a hit with beer enthusiasts when it was out on-draught, so making it available in bottles this year was an easy decision," said Bruce Eames, innovation manager for A-B. "Now, Jack's can be enjoyed on tap with friends at the neighbourhood bar or at home in bottles during get-togethers like Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinners."
The 5.5% abv beer will be on sale until early December.
