Saint Arnold Announces Divine Reserve 9

Hot off the heels of the release of their Divine Reserve 8, Saint Arnold has announced the next brew in the exclusive series. Divine Reserve 9 will be brewed today and tomorrow for release in either November or December. It will be an "Imperial Stout Pumpkin Ale," which sounds pretty interesting, if nothing else. The Divine Reserve series is the perfect time to experiment, and I'm happy to see Saint Arnold getting creative again. Here's what founder Brock Wagner has to say about DR9:

It's like a chocolate pumpkin pie, and 10% ABV. My complaint with pumpkin ales is typically the body of the beer doesn't carry the spice. It was a challenge to come up with enough pumpkin too. Apparently, when it's not Thanksgiving, stores don't stock much pumpkin!"
With all of the excitement and disappointment we saw a few weeks back with DR8, I wish you the best of luck getting your hands on DR9 later this year.

For what it's worth, there is still some DR8 out there. My wife reported a six-pack at Hall's in Colleyville on Saturday. So if you want it, you might just need to check some of the less-traveled stores.

Sounds good. Luckily, I was able to pick up a couple of six-pack at good old Spec's on release day.
