The Great Pump­kin

Where Vancouver - - Dining -

Well be­fore Hal­loween, the city’s tal­ented craft brew­ers turn their at­ten­tion to pump­kin ales. And the re­sults are any­thing but scary. Styles can range from dry and spicy to sweet and fruity. But the flavours, of­ten with cin­na­mon, nut­meg and clove hints, are al­ways au­then­tic. For a truly sea­sonal sip, swing by Cen­tral City (page 74) for Red Racer Snick­er­doo­dle Pump­kin Ale. Head to Devil’s El­bow Ale & Smoke House (page 74) in the Sta­dium District for the Pump­kineater Im­pe­rial Pump­kin Ale. At Steam­works (page 71) in Gas­town, sip some pump­kin ale and get a glimpse of the har­bour. Or, to dis­cover a range of styles, try a flight at St. Au­gus­tine’s (page 67) in East Van, with over 60 beers and ciders from near and far on tap.
