Pour one out for Indeed's Yamma Jamma

The Harvest Ale is retiring.

In the craft beer world, what's trendy one year is out the next.

Indeed Brewing Company understands this. That's why the brewery is retiring one of its popular fall beers to make way for another.

This autumn will be your last chance to sip on Yamma Jamma Harvest Ale, Indeed announced Thursday.

With hints of sweet potato, vanilla, and a blend of spices, the brew was like a holiday in a glass, and a nice alternative for people who want something festive but despise the all-pumpkin-everything craze that dominates cooler shelves this time of year. 

Indeed says Yamma Jamma "had a good run" but that it's time to move on.

"Yamma Jamma had a good run,and fitthe bill for what we wanted to make five years ago, but today tastes are changing. We’re always excited to do new things and create new brands that show off what we can do as a brewery, so that's where we are headed in the future," Indeed Co-Founder Tom Whisenand said in the release.

The brewery hinted that it is working on something new for next fall, but can't share any details yet.

Until then, you can pour one out for Yamma Jamma, which will be on the shelves from the end of August into October. The first keg will be tapped at Indeed Brewing's Five Year Celebration at Icehouse Minneapolis on August 19th.

If you're thinking it's too early (and too hot) for fall flavors, you're not alone. A poll by Drink Craft Beer found 68 percent of people think seasonal craft beers come out too early.

But it's typical for breweries to start teasing fall brews while it's still summer. Tin Whiskers and Summit Brewing Co. are among those already talking fall beers.
