I just had a bit of an epiphany!

You know all those beer-bread recipes?
I've always made them with plain ol beer.....

How about making a beer-bread with the Pumpkin...or the blueberry?
YUM!

See?

What did I just say? jkath, keep it up! Sounds good to me.
Only increases the flavor. When I add beer to chili sure does make difference. Didn't know you made bread. I have to try the Pumpkin Muffins, trying to keep up with you. I bet your family is happy. No one take your place. Good for you!!

You all inspired me! I didn't know anything about pumpkin beer but when I went to town this week, I looked for it...found it!! I bought a six-pack, sent one bottle home with my parents, and the rest still sit in my refrigerator. I plan to try it this weekend. Using it in bread sounds like a great idea!!!

Depending on the type you get it could be great in a bread or you just might not even notice it. Some have just a subtle hint of pumpkin flavor and others have a very powerful pumpkin flavor. Each brand is different.

Almost Gone

This is shameful but my Pumpkin Beer is almost gone and it isn't Halloween yet. Have been looking in the stores but evidently people are reading our comments and trying to find it. There sure isn't enough in the bottle. I always wind up drinking two. I guess I really indulge when something taste so different. I don't get a headache from it either. Have to go to the store tomorrow but I don't like to go to the liquor department as soon as I walk in. Wish me luck. Thanks and I wish you the same.

ITK - good luck on your search for pumpkin beer! And don't worry about heading to the liquor area first...it's OK!! Besides, if you wait, you might miss out on the last 6 pack of pumpkin beer!!!

I hate to ask...but how's the bug problem? Been thinking about you and hoping things are better at your house.

Now I wonder if you can get pumpkin beer in Canada I have never seen it and bluebarry is also one I have never seen. I will look for it. I love beer and sure hope I find it. If anyone knows of any brands of Pumpkin beer sold in Canada please let me know.

Thanks for asking. The exterminator is returnin g this week to check the spider traps he left. If there are more than 6 or 8 he says house has to be treated. Do you remember I started with Wolf Spiders? Well, I see them laying dead on the floor. The poison they put down must be working on them. But the others are hard to kill. I just wish I could move everything in the house outside and take a hose with clorox and kill everything that isn't supposed to be living here. Do I sound wild? It makes a person upset when you have to have someone tell you they find bugs in your house. The main thing everyone tells me is not to allow clutter. SOme of the stuff I need once in while. Thanks again for thinking of me callie. Must have made you feel good to know you don't have this. Hope you never do.

Thanks mate.

Dark malt beer, light malt beer - that's about it I'm afraid.

A stubbie of Beer with my Pumpkin Soup (not mixed) is about as close as I wanna get.

I'm still trying to get my head around Biscuits & Gravy.

DW & daughter go made over vanilla Coke. No thanks.

Fiddling with good old beer is leaning towards heresy. There'll be chocolate flavoured Jack Daniels shortly.

I agree about the beer (I prefer my blueberries and pumpkins in pies), and say it ain't so, Brooksy, on the Jack!
