pumpkin ale
Grumpy Pumpkin Ale at Milly’s

Fall has brought Grumpy Pumpkin Ale back on tap at Milly’s Tavern. Unlike other brewers, Milly’s uses fresh picked, NH pumpkins, not a pumpkin pie spice mix to create its brew. The pumpkins are baked in Milly’s ovens to caramelize the natural sugars and are then added into the brewing process. Light amber in color, Milly’s Grumpy Pumpkin Ale is a well-balanced beer that is best served in a pint glass rimmed with a blend of sugar and spices. Tip: ask for a bowl of toasted pumpkin seeds!

Tucker’s in Hooksett is celebrating the change of season with a fall menu. Look for pumpkin Vienna toast ($8.55), a Harvest salad with turkey tips, butternut squash, pumpkin seeds and a cranberry vinaigrette ($10.95) and Samantha’s orchard panini ($9.50) Call ahead to order and use their convenient drive-up window to pick up.
