A. Keith's Releases Hortonville’s Pumpkin Ale

(Halifax, NS) - A. Keith's Nova Scotia Brewery released its latest small batch beer, Hortonville’s Pumpkin Ale today. Brewed with Vienna and Munich malt from Nova Scotia’s Horton Ridge Malt & Grain and is loaded with pumpkin puree, fresh ginger, Ceylon cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Brewer Stefan Gagliardi  says "All the flavors come together like a liquid pumpkin pie. The malts provide a rich malty, toasty, sweet pie crust base, a medium-high body and a soft mouthfeel which supports the delightful aromas and flavors of the pumpkin pie filling". Stefan says this recipe has perfected over numerous years on a homebrew scale as it’s one of his favorite beers to brew.
There are three kegs of pumpkin beer going on the growler station on Lower Water Street.
