In New England, fall is in full swing. And with the autumn season in this part of the country comes apple picking, Halloween decorations, and everything pumpkin flavored. Wormtown Brewery is not the only local brew house to make a seasonal pumpkin-inspired ale, but theirs offers something unique: a bit of nostalgia to go with the sweetness and spice. Wormtown Brewery’s Table Talk Pumpkin Ale harkens back to the classic treat, and its label is sure to catch your eye if you’ve ever snacked on (or perhaps still enjoy) those single-serving Table Talk pies. And even if you’re not a long-time Table Talk pie lover, this beer is the perfect addition to basking in the last bits of warmth outside before the real cold sets in, or to enjoy cuddled up indoors with a scary movie in honor of the season!
For a brewery that is committed to being local in both their imagery and their ingredients, Table Talk Pumpkin Pie Ale is certainly fitting. The folks at Wormtown believe “that it is just as important to be committed to the ingredients that go into our beer, as it is to the process of taking those very ingredients and turning them into great beer. And as such it is important for our brewery to explore ways to make great beer that expresses a certain terroir of our region.” Table Talk Pies have been made in Worcester since 1924, so they are certainly part of the “terroir” of that city; Wormtown’s partnership with them on this beer make it unique among a sea of pumpkin flavored beverages.
Unlike many of Wormtown’s other brews that have colored or dark bases, the background of this special pumpkin libation label is white. Printed on a film material with matte lamination, the imagery of leaves falling in autumnal colors are vibrant and evocative of all the things that are great about the season. And of course, the image of a Table Talk pumpkin pie on front is the centerpiece of the label. The pie itself is imprinted with the Wormtown “W,” an excellent touch to draw attention to the partnership and community building both brands are known for in Worcester. The red of the Table Talk logo flows beautifully with the colored leaves and the bold black of the Wormtown Brewery font balances out the earth tones of the rest of the label.
We love to partner with local brands—after all, being part of a community is one of the best parts of being in business! And when our partners place such great importance on supporting and working with other local companies, it all seems to come full circle.
