IHOPS - Pumpkin Pancake Stout Beer from IHOP
Ye who thought Pumpkin would never find a better mate than Spice Latte, check out IHOPS, the new Pumpkin Pancake Stout beer from IHOP. Ha! I see your venti tastes-like-fall coffee drink, and raise you 16 ounces of baking-spice-infused-squash breakfast in a glass!
Since 'tis officially the season for pumpkin (and 'tis always the season for marketing gimmicks) IHOP has teamed up with New York's Keegan Ales to create this pancake-and-pun-inspired IHOPS beer. The stout combines IHOP's pancakes, pumpkins, and maple syrup in its flavor profile. At printing, IHOPS was available only in person, making appearances in various taps around New York on designated dates you can browse by following the link to the IHOP IHOPS webpage above.
While beer will always beat coffee in my book, there's really no need to sacrifice one potable pumpkin for the other. Grab a PSL to wake you up and get you through the workday, and then a few pints of IHOPS to help you forget all about it when you're done.
