TRAVERSE CITY —– Tired of having to choose between your favorite pumpkin beer and your favorite IPA when fall comes around?
Well, fret no more.
Enter the Hooligan —– the new hoppy pumpkin beer from North Peak Brewing Company. Coming in at 5.5 percent-ABV with 35 IBUs, Hooligan is a real treat for beer lovers —– just in time for the harvest season.
“It’s no trick. This brew delivers all the spicy pumpkin goodness one could ask for, along with a kick of hops,” brewer Ron Jeffries said. “Hooligan is brewed with real pumpkin and fresh spices (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice). And, did we mention…hops? Hooligan is brimming with locally-grown hops.”
So who is this Hooligan? He is a legendary and impish figure who appears but once a year on Devil’s Night —– the night before Halloween. He lurks through the darkness, traipsing in the shadows from house to house with a rogue gait and a devilish grin on his face.
This scoundrel is more mischievous than wicked, yet his reputation for mayhem is wildly known. Anyone who has woken up on Halloween morning to find their pumpkins smashed or yard toilet-papered is familiar with the antics of the Northern Michigan Hooligan.
Hooligan is available only on draft, now through October when the last pumpkin is smashed. Find it throughout Michigan and Ohio, wherever your favorite North Peak beers are sold.
