I once watched the sun rise over the Grand Canyon. The light appeared from the darkest night sky I have ever seen, deep red and orange, and it painted the canyon before me. I am not a spiritual person, but I saw God in those rocks that morning. And that’s exactly what happens when I drink a Southern Tier Imperial Pumking. Before each tiny sip of this wonderful, wonderful beer, I take a long and slow breath in, allowing its strong aroma float into my nostrils. Tiny pumpkin hairs tickle the back of my throat and linger. I take a sip- FLAVOR EXPLOSION. I hold the sweet maltiness in my mouth, savoring the flavor. A hint of vanilla finishes the cool liquid as I swallow.
And that is how I drink a Southern Tier Imperial Pumking.
