BJ’s Restaurant taps its Pumpkin Ale Tuesday at Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance

And presumably at other BJ’s locations, too.

Here’s more from the BJ’s press release:

BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse was one of the first to introduce a pumpkin ale in 1996.

In 2010 we perfected the recipe, winning a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Field/Pumpkin Beer category.

This holiday-inspired ale is brewed with real pumpkin and lots of spices for a delicious pumpkin pie flavor. A spicy finish balances this fresh, flavorful ale’s sweet start, while a combination of specialty malts adds a beautiful orange hue.
