Rhum is the old world/pirate way of spelling rum. Rhumpshaka started life as an almost nondescript 11% ABV beer using 80% Pilsner malt and 20% oats to allow the character of the rum barrels to be the focus. Rhumpshaka spent over 9 months in 12 old rum barrels, some of which were commissioned back in 1982! The resulting beer is unfiltered and has a profound boozy character. Huge coconut and passionfruit-like aromas fill your nose. The heat from the rum is immediately apparent and blends well with the vanilla and coconut flavors, which linger on your palate. It’s a sweeter finish with tannic notes commensurate with extended barrel aging. Packaged in a 750 ml bottle with cork and cage finish.

Rhumpshaka is a one-time special release available exclusively at the Visitors Center. Release date: April 18th, 12:00 noon.

  1. […] supplies last! This brew is NOT being distributed, it’s available here only!  Read about Rhumpshaka and get some before it is gone! Weyerbacher Rhumpshaka is still in-stock unless specifically stated […]

    Please tell me you have some of the Rhumpshaka left!!
    Just tried the last taste at the Lansdale Brew Fest before the keg kicked. My all time favorite brew is Evolution Spring Migration, but I do believe that Rhumpshaka rivals it. I just need more than 2oz to be sure!!!!! Please let me know & I’ll make the journey.
