It debuted in 1994 and is still one of the most sought after pumpkin beers around! It’s PUNKIN time, NJ! Dogfish Head’s rich, brown ale, brewed with spices, brown sugar, and real pumpkin meat is hitting the shelves today!







Sam Calagione submitted this beer in a recipe contest at the Punkin Chunkin competition back in 1994 and won! Fast forward to 2016 and Dogfish Head is still brewing this seasonal favorite each and every Fall.

Keep your eyes peeled for the awesome new label artwork by Drew Millward and brand new packaging this year for Punkin and all of the Dogfish Head products. The Dogfish Head art team gave the whole brand a new look and we are loving it!
