Say hello to Gourdgeous!
Our pumpkin-spiced ale is ready just in time for fall.

Posted by Brad Shankwiler | October 07, 2014

We are excited to introduce our newest seasonal brew, Gourdgeous, a limited-release beer which began pouring into retailers, bars and restaurants this week. This delicious fall brew is available in draught and is also our first beer offered in 22 oz. bomber bottles, which will be available this week in locations that carry other Grayton beers.

With an alcohol by volume (ABV) content of 5.4 percent, the new Gourdgeous beer was crafted with 300 pounds of fresh pumpkin pulp added to a classic ale base then delicately spiced with fresh ginger root, coriander, allspice and cinnamon sticks.

This is one of my favorite recipes, and I look forward to brewing it every fall. I get a lot of people who don’t often like pumpkin beer, but Gourdgeous has light and subtle nuances of pumpkin without the overbearing taste. It is also such a beautiful looking beer, so I decided to call it Gourdgeous! This beer is perfectly balanced and will pair well with whatever fall fare you may choose.

Your fall won’t be complete without a glass (or three) of Gourdgeous, so make sure to get some while it lasts!
