Biere de Gourde

Farmhouse Ale with Pumpkins The latest installment in Cambridge Brewing Company’s series of pumpkin offerings, Bière de Gourde is based on the amber-colored beer typical of the rural French/Belgian border known as bière de garde. [wpex more="Read more" less="Read less"] French pilsner and Munich-style malt plus 200 pounds of organic Farm School sugar pumpkins went into the mash, embracing the “brew with what you’ve got” tradition of farmhouse breweries. The beer was hopped with Hallertauer Mittlefruh hops and spiced with a subtle hint of whole black pepper. The beer was then fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and cold-conditioned for several weeks. Its hazy amber-gold mien has highlights of orange from our favorite squash, and boasts a high but fine carbonation. It is crisp on the palate with clean malt, underlying earthy spices, and a hint of tartness in the finish. Tulip...$5.50 Pitcher...$20 Tower...$34 [/wpex]
