Simply put, today Friday October 25th at 5pm will be your first chance to have an idea of what Lickinghole Creek’s Estate pumpkin beer, Pumpkin Ain’t Easy, will taste like except with spices. Brew in Chesterfield is tapping a pin containing 90% Pumpkin Ain’t Easy, 10% Three Chopt Tripel, and cinnamon nibs. Yes, cinnamon nibs not cocoa. I had to look it up; they are a real thing. They will have other Lickinghole Creeek beers on tap as well. Owner Sean-Thomas Pumphrey will be there as well to answer your questions as well.
Maybe ask why not call the beer “Punkin Ain’t Easy.” I guess that’d require new neck labels.

Pu-erh or Pu’er tea is a variety of fermented dark tea produced in Yunnan province, China.Fermentation is a tea production style in which the tea leaves undergo microbial fermentation and oxidation after they are dried and rolled. This process is a Chinese specialty and produces tea known as Hei Cha (黑茶), commonly translated as dark, or black tea (this type of tea is completely different from what in West is known as “black tea”, which in China is called “red tea” 红茶). The most famous variety of this category of tea is Pu-erh from Yunnan Province, named after the trading post for dark tea during imperial China.
Bucket Trade will tap their pin at 5pm. Head over to the Facebook event for more information.
