Today is my turn to contribute to the fabulous feature, the brain child of Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide, where myself, Brittany, Estelle at Rather Be Reading and Maggie at Just a Couple More Pages are paring books and beer. Pretty perfect for a bunch of beer and book lovers if you ask me.
This month’s Pub Date was hard yo! Like really really hard. The prompt is work/hobbies. I mean my current hobby besides reading is planners and stickers and there is no beer I could find that catered to that. And I work in HR. Another bust. BUT a friend of mine from work mentioned something the other day that stuck. Every September there is an after work function that we attend to mingle and almost every year we have a Pumpkin beer.
So I decided to cheat a little this month (my blog, my rules!) and show off some of the pumpkin beers I have tried although it is usually Shipyard had at this function.
Shipyard Pumpkinhead: By far my favorite of all the ones I have tried. I really like the pumpkin taste and I find a cinnamon sugar rim brings out the flavor. Add some apple beer and you have a winner! ABV 4.70%
Harpoon UFO Pumpkin: I have only had this one once and gave it a shot because it is from a local brewery. The color is very amber and the taste isn’t all that bad. Not my favorite. ABV 5.90%
Blue Moon Harvest Moon: This too me is more Fall than a Pumpkin beer. As a fan of Blue Moon though I liked the taste of this one. The pumpkin is very mild but it is still there. ABV 5.70%
The Traveler Beer Co. Jack-O Traveler Shandy: This one is not my favorite but I don’t hate it either. I think the wheat taste was just a little too heavy for my liking, but definitely not a bad option. ABV 4.40%

Lead by Kylie Scott: I just finished this book this week and it was kind of fitting because the girl in it, Lena, is a personal assistant. That goes perfectly with my hobbies of reading and planners. Lena had to be on top of things for rock star Jimmy so she had to be organized for sure. If you are interested in a New Adult series on rock stars I would definitely check out the 4 books in this series.
And there you have my Pub Date. I will be hosting this lovely feature every few weeks and would love for you to stop by and share a pint with me…or at least tell me what you are currently enjoying. Make sure you follow along with Brittany, Estelle and Maggie too. You never know when you will find your new favorite beer.
