RE: Drink Pumpkin!
Legend has it, pumkin beer was a common beverage among the first colonists and pioneers. Barley and grain being short, beer from Europe heavily taxed, our American fore fathers made due with what was on hand. And pumpkin ferments up rather nicely.
This time of year I always pick up a 12-er of Pumpkin Ale to sip through the holidays and into the new year. It's not something you drink in quantity by any means, but one is nice.
