Samuel Adams Brewery is releasing a new small batch brew this fall called Fat Jack, a double pumpkin ale. More than 28 pounds of real pumpkin were used in each barrel. It also includes pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.
"At 8.5 percent alcohol by volume, Samuel Adams Fat Jack finishes smooth with lingering, subtle heat from its strength and spices," the brewery said in a news release.
The label features a rather obese pumpkin. The beer will be available nationwide starting this month and retail for $6.99 per 22-ounce bottle.
Samuel Adams Octoberfest, the brewery's fall seasonal beer, also will be available this month through October. Six-packs are $7.99. It's also included in the Samuel Adams Harvest Collection Variety 12-pack for $13.99.
