If you're looking to add a little spice to your meal this Thanksgiving Day, grab a 6-pack of Indian Wells Brewing Co. Spicy Pumpkin Ale. It's super light, not filling, so there's no need to change into your stretch pants. It has that extra pep to keep your tastebuds talkin'. And it's easily accessible since it's sold at Whole Foods.
- fizzy, gingery, almost apple cider seltzer-like Spicy Pumpkin Ale (Indian Wells Brewing Co. in Inyokern, CA)
I'm almost inclined to say that this one's for the kids. So toss that bottle of Sparkling Martinelli's Apple Cider out – but don't get me wrong, this one's not sweet as sweet as you think.
It has a strong nose, smelling like Ginger Ale and it tastes like it too, but with all the sugar sucked out. Layers of Spicy Gingeriness are accompanied by faint Whiskey, Apple Cider, Nutmeg & Cinnamon with a Pumpkin finish. It's golden brown in color, and super carbonated too.
Made from Pure Artesian Water, this Ale is seriously bordering on Soda Water, making it probably the best tummy-pleaser after stuffing your face with all that Turkey 'n Potatoes.
Feel free to drink this one with your meal or alongside a slice of pie (or two).
