Pumpkin spiced ale finally available in 12oz cans

Cans of Punkin Ale stacked around pumpkins

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s cult pumpkin spiced ale returns this autumn for its 29th year. This year for the first time Punkin Ale (7.0%) is available in 6pk/12oz cans.

The full bodied brown ale made with real pumpkin has been a cult classic in Delaware for almost 30 years. But now fans of the cinnamon spiced brew can enjoy it at home or at a bonfire in a can for the first time. 

Dogfish Head Founder Sam Calagione says: “One of my favourite moments of the year is cracking open a Punkin Ale. It’s crazy to think that’s been happening for 29 years now. In that time, the beer’s recipe really hasn’t changed, but its packaging has seen dozens of design iterations. But this is the first time it’s ever been in cans, which is going to make packing it up to take along to your next bonfire or Oktoberfest celebration that much easier!”

The Punkin Ale launch is part of Dogfish Head’s art series, a yearly collection of four beers featuring artwork by a single collaborating artist. 

It boasts packaging by Natalya Balnova – a New York-based illustrator, designer and printmaker. Natalya is best known for creating artwork featuring whimsical worlds and playful storyscapes. Her Punkin Ale packaging design (pictured) centres on magical creatures relaxing amidst a field of hops .

Dogfish Head also launched a new off-Centered Variety Pack featuring a curated mix of four beers, including exclusive Tasty Traveler Lager

Tasty Traveler Lager (5.0% ABV) is brewed with Oaxacan green corn, Baja Salicornia, sea salt and Mexican lime juice for a refreshing, light-bodied beer with a crackery malt backbone and a subtle lime tartness.

In addition to Tasty Traveler Lager, the Off-Centered Variety Pack contains three (3) 12oz cans of the following beers.

  • 60 Minute IPA (6.0% ABV): Dogfish Head’s iconic, continually hopped IPA brewed with a boatload of intense Northwest hops for a beer that is abundantly hoppy without being crushingly bitter.
  • Slightly Mighty (4.0% ABV): A lo-cal IPA brewed with monk fruit for a beer with all the flavors and aromas of a world-class IPA, but only 95 calories, 3.6g carbs, 1g protein and 0g fat per 12oz can.
  • Blue Hen Pilsner (4.8% ABV): A crisp pilsner brewed with just four ingredients – water, hops, yeast, and Delaware-grown and malted barley – for a loving nod to Dogfish Head’s home state.
