Allagash Ghoulschip Returns October 25th, 2014
(Portland,ME) – Boo! October 25th we’ll have a brewery only release of Ghoulschip, just in time for Halloween.
For the past 2 years, we’ve been putting local pumpkins through a wood chipper on the eve of Halloween to make this batch Ghoulschip. Ghoulschip is our version of a pumpkin beer. With a mash that included shredded pumpkin and pumpkin seeds the wort then spent the night outside, in our Coolship, possessed by the yeasts of beers past. In the morning, the cooled wort was racked into oak barrels and pitched with our house yeast. Ghoulschip fermented and aged in the dark recesses of our cellars for 1-2 years. The resulting beer is light bodied and pumpkiny in color. Apricot dominates the aroma, with vanilla and caramel lurking in the background. The flavor profile is scarily clean, with a dry, tart finish that will haunt you.
