Nano Brew Cleveland is planning a special treat for pumpkin beer lovers. The nanobrewery in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood will release a new pumpkin brew each week starting Sept. 18 through Oct. 31. That’s seven different pumpkin beers if you’re counting.
Brewmaster Andy Tveekrem, who also heads the operation at nearby Market Garden Brewery, said people should expect some variety, including different types of squash such as butternut squash. Not all pumpkin beers have to taste like pumpkin pie and be heavily spiced, he said.
The brewers plan to experiment with styles and yeast, and there's no set list yet. Perhaps there will be a pumpkin India pale ale, Tveekrem said. Most of the pumpkin brews will be served from a firkin.
