Parallel 49 Brewing in Vancouver, BC has released the 2018 version of their seasonal Schadenfreude pumpkin Oktoberfest lager.
Brewed as a traditional Oktoberfest Lager, this beer sets itself apart from other pumpkin ales by being light and refreshing. Pumpkin is used in the mash along with traditional pumpkin pie spicing in the brew kettle. A large portion of the grain used is Munich malt which gives a nice pie crust flavour to the beer.
Schadenfreude is available now at the brewery and bottles will arrive at private and government liquor stores soon.
