Pumpkin Ale Pie

Maggie May Schill


I'm going to get a jump start on the Autumn season I think. It is my favorite time of the year. I don't know what it is about Autumn, the pumpkin flavored everything, cinnamon flavors...or maybe it is the fact brown is my favorite color??? I think corporate America also is getting a bigger and bigger jump start on the Autumn season as well. Pumpkin Ale is all over the shelves at the grocery store. All kinds of brands, from the micro-brewers to the massive brewers.

How to Make Pumpkin Ale Pie


  • 1Preheat oven to 425'F Once oven reaches temperature reduce oven temperature to 350'F
  • 2In a large mixing bowl cream sugar together with sour cream, butter and egg yolk.
    Slowly mix in pumpkin puree and eggs until completely incorporated.
  • 3Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, flour, salt and nutmeg.
    Mix in pumpkin ale until completely incorporated.
  • 4Pour batter out into two unbaked pie crusts.
    Garnish pies with chocolate syrup. I did it by making lines in the pie then dragging a design with a toothpick on the pie.
  • 5Use a pie shield, or fold aluminum foil over the outer edge of the pie crust so it doesn't burn when you bake pie.
    Bake pies on center rack for 40-50 minutes until the center sets. Cool completely before serving.
