DITCH THE PUMPKIN BEER FOR THESE LOCAL OKTOBERFEST BREWS

Every time I see a large display of pumpkin beer at a grocery store I think, “Who the hell is still buying this stuff?”

These displays show up in late August – when summer is still very much a thing, mind you – and take up significant real estate in grocery store aisles and on beer shelves.

I don’t know anyone who drinks pumpkin beer anymore, but apparently enough people still do to warrant displays so big you’d think Mainers only swill pumpkin beer in the fall.

Nathan, a long-time homebrewer, is the man behind the beer. I caught up with him to talk about the brewery’s explosive growth, Portland’s position as a craft mecca, and, fittingly, whether the old moniker “a rising tide lifts all ships” still applies to the competitive beer industry.

Rising Tide Brewing Company and Foundation Brewing Company partnered to create two collaborative beers, Crosstown Peel and Crosstown Peach.  Crosstown Peel is an IPA with blood oranges and Crosstown Peach is a hoppy ale with peaches. See Dave Patterson's article for more.
