Good Grief, It’s….Cambridge Brewing Company’s GREAT PUMPKIN ALE!!!
Perhaps CBC’s most sought after seasonal beer, Great Pumpkin Ale flows from the taps September 9th through Thanksgiving ‘cuz we’re makin’ a LOT of it. PLUS, we’re bottling for the first time in 22 years. Wow! We are proud to be distributed by our friends at the Craft Brewers Guild. Look for CBC’s Great Pumpkin Ale in better beer stores throughout MA!
We are very proud to be brewing with local, organic sugar pumpkins from our friends at The Farm School in Athol, and Wilson Farms in Lexington. We’re also using organic barley that was grown in MA at Lazy Acres Farm and then small-batch malted by our friends at Valley Malt, both in Hadley, MA. This is just a part of the B.S.A. (Brewery Supported Agriculture) program that allows us to work directly with famers to grow heirloom and heritage grain varieties which are then custom malted before being crafted into CBC beer. Promoting and supporting local, organic and sustainable farming is as important to us at CBC as promoting local, seasonal beer and cuisine. Check them all out at www.FarmSchool.org, www.WilsonFarm.com, and www.ValleyMalt.com. Cool!
Beer brewed with pumpkins has been around since the days of colonial New England, when brewers often had to supplement the traditional barley and hops with other ingredients that were more readily available. CBC, the first New England craft brewery to produce pumpkin ale, revived the style in the Boston area in 1990 and continues to brew this beer according to Phil “Brewdaddy” Bannatyne’s original recipe! Other craft breweries have followed suit since then, and pumpkin beer has developed a huge following across the country and beyond.
CBC’s Great Pumpkin Ale is brewed with over 150 pounds of fresh, locally grown, organic sugar pumpkins in each batch, and it has an appropriately distinct orange hue. The subtle fresh pumpkin flavor is enhanced by the addition of a touch of traditional autumn spices, and is guaranteed to please even the most finicky of harvest-time ale fanatics. Come raise a glass in honor of the Great Pumpkin!
