ST. LOUIS (Aug. 16, 2007) – As summer begins to wind down and autumn colors appear, let Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale get you in the mood for the approaching crisp, fall nights. Whether you’re planning to carve pumpkins or bake a pumpkin pie this season, Anheuser‑Busch’s fall beer offering is the perfect toast to the arrival of autumn.

Brewed with select seasonal spices and real Oregon-grown Golden Delicious pumpkins, this beer’s authentic pumpkin flavor tastefully complements the foods of the season – turkey dinners and pumpkin bisque – as well as dishes like teriyaki chicken and mild Italian sausages.

“For adults who’ve never tried a pumpkin beer before, we’d encourage them to experiment with Jack’s,” said Florian Kuplent, brewmaster, Anheuser-Busch, Inc. “Because the pumpkin and spice flavors are so well-balanced and subtle, Jack’s doesn’t overpower foods and makes for an ideal culinary experience. Year after year this is one of our favorite beers to brew and we hope beer drinkers who enjoy trying new flavors will sample this seasonal ale.”

Available nationwide through November, this popular robust ale is the perfect addition to adult Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinners. With the aromas of pumpkin, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon and clove, Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale has a rich, full flavor that beer lovers will enjoy.

Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale is brewed with two-row, caramel and carapils barley malts, a blend of imported and domestic Hallertau hops and domestic Saaz hops. Enjoy this brew in a tall, fluted glass for the best tasting experience; allowing its rich aromas to funnel straight to the nose.

Brewed at the Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins, Colo. brewery, Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale has 5.5 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) and is available on draught at bars, clubs and restaurants, as well as in 12-ounce bottles in six-packs at grocery and convenience stores. Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale is the first in Anheuser-Busch’s series of seasonal beers, which also includes Winter’s Bourbon Cask Ale, Spring Heat Spiced Wheat and Beach Bum Blonde Ale.

    I absolutely love your Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale. I discovered it while vacationing at a Disney World resort. While sitting by the pool, I visited the outdoor bar where the bartender recommended your Pumpkin Spice Ale. I was amazed by the taste and instantly fell in love with it. Upon returning home to Indiana, I was pleased to find Jack’s Pumpkin Spice Ale in my local grocery store. Unfortunately, the season for it is over and I can not find it anymore. I will be anxiously looking forward to its return next fall. Thanks for creating such a great tasting speciality beer.

    Yum, yum! tried this at the First Annual Suds & Shore brew festival in Ludington. Absolutely love the flavors, which are imbedded in the beer: it doesn’t taste like flavoring was added later, like some seasonals do.

    I am trying to find more information, but I can’t seem to. I have been told by the local liquor store that this has been discontinued. If this is true I will truly be bummed. This was my favorite (inexpensive) seasonal beer.

    I was told that it was replaced by the shocktop pumpkin wheat ale. I gave that a try and wasn’t impressed. Was sort of hoping it would be the same formula with some rebranding (shocktop seems to be a popular thing with the twenty-something crowd) but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

    Say it ain’t so and bring me back my Jack’s!

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Jack’s were replaced with Shocktop. Jack’s was put out before Inbev bought out Anheuser-Busch so who knows what’s happened to it. If the liquor store guy says it’s gone, it probably is.

      Try your local brewpub or regional brewer. It seems like everybody brews a pumpkin beer for autumn these days. Maybe you’ll like what they’re making and, if you buy it by the growler, it will probably be price comparable or even better.
