Schlafly’s Pumpkin Ale

Pumpkin Ale

If you are fortunate to get your hands on a 6-pack of  then consider yourself blessed by Demeter, the goddess of the harvest.  I liken it to liquid pumpkin pie that makes you feel toasty…sans campfire.  According to Schlafly’s website their Pumpkin Ale blends the spices of the harvest with full-bodied sweetness for a beer that tastes like pumpkin pie. And it does!  Pounds of pumpkin form a malty foundation that supports the fall flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove.

While pumpkin beers were produced in the early days of the American colonies, they were different from the pumpkin beers we know today.  Colonists used pumpkin and squash as the fermenting medium, since malted barley was scarce.  Once malt became more readily available, it replaced these alternatives to grain.  In the 1990’s, American craft brewers reintroduced the style to the delight of pumpkin beer drinkers.

via Vintage Ski: Fridtjof Nansen

via Vintage Ski :

Our hero here at Vintage Ski, Fridtjof Nansen, photographed once again by Ludwik Szacinski in Christiania, AKA Oslo, Norway in 1889.  For you trainspotter Norwegians, the street address was Carl Johansgade 20 where the photo was taken. If someone wants to find the address, take a photo of the place and email it to me, be my guest.

This photo was taken in 1889.  Two big events transpired that year for Nansen, 28 years old at the time – he returned from a lengthy expedition to Greenland and he got engaged to Eva Sars.
