Welcome, Pumpkin Beer season!

Darwin Brewing Company re-introduces our wildly popular Big Deal Chocolate Pumpkin Ale, exclusively sold at Lucky’s Market for a limited time only!  This new brew has notes of coffee, chocolate, hazelnut and pumpkin spice to create an exquisitely balanced brown ale.

Pumpkin Spice Latte who? Chocolate Pumpkin Brown Ale has 8.1 percent ABV… so let’s just say that you’re not doing fall right if you’re not drinking Big Deal Chocolate Pumpkin Ale. It sure does have all of the cozy fall feels.  Drink a Chocolate Pumpkin Ale while you pass out Halloween candy, during a strangely warm Florida bonfire, during your football Sunday tailgate or even crack one open for breakfast on a Saturday morning – we don’t judge here!

Pair your Chocolate Pumpkin Brown Ale with a slice of pecan pie on Thanksgiving, which surprisingly enough, enhances the nutty flavor in pumpkin beers. If you’re feeling extra festive, whip up some pumpkin ravioli to eat with your Chocolate Pumpkin Ale. Again, we don’t judge.  

Bring home the newest Big Deal brew from Lucky’s Market today, and make sure to check out the rest of our Big Deal line while you’re at it.



We always like to feature a fun recipe to incorporate beer with cooking. The Beeroness has an absolutely amazing recipe that screams falls called the No-Bake Cream Cheese Caramel Pumpkin Ale Pie made with brown ale. It doesn’t take up any extra oven space on Thanksgiving, and how perfect of a combination is beer and pie!?

To make this pie Darwin’s style, swap out the brown ale with our Chocolate Pumpkin Ale, and voila! You have a delicious, no-bake pie to wow all of your friends and family at Thanksgiving. You can find the whole recipe on The Beeroness website.
