Four Peaks Releases the Seasonal Favorite for 17th Year in a Row
TEMPE, Ariz – While the temperature may not reflect it, fall has officially come to Arizona thanks to Four Peaks Brewing Company releasing their highly anticipated seasonal beer, Four Peaks Pumpkin Porter on September 9, 2015. Four Peaks has maintained the same recipe for the past 16 years and continued the tradition this season too.
Pumpkin Porter will be available for Arizona statewide distribution through Hensley Beverage Company in Arizona beginning the week of September 14, 2015, including draft and cans. Each year Four Peaks produces more than the previous year and each year it’s more popular than the last.
“Pumpkin Porter is a dark, rich porter combined with all of the things that make a great pumpkin pie; nutmeg, allspice, ground clove and a little bit of ginger. It’s our most popular specialty beer and has been for nearly two decades,” explains Andy Ingram, Four Peaks Brewer, and founding partner. Pumpkin Porter weighs in at 5.1% ABV and 9 IBUs.
Following on Pumpkin Porter’s coattails will be Imperial Porter later in the season (release date TBD). Imperial Porter is a part of Four Peaks’ Single Tank Series and is brewed one 40 BBL batch at a time, in-house. This double pumpkin imperial porter is not quite double in alcohol and not quite double the pumpkin. This porter weighs in at about 8.2% ABV and 25 IBUs.
Four Peaks Brewing Company has been a part of Tempe, Arizona since 1996. It is the third largest brewery in the United States among those only distributing in their home states.
