About Ghoulschip by Allagash Brewing Company

Allagash Brewing's favorite Halloween tradition is brewing Ghoulschip with fresh, local pumpkins, molasses, and raw pumpkin seeds. On All Hallows’ Eve itself, they send the beer to rest among the specters in their Coolship, where it collects wild microflora from the chill Maine air. The beer then ferments in a stainless tank on the house yeast before heading into oak barrels, where it sits in waiting for up to three years.

Although Ghoulschip isn’t spontaneously fermented, Allagash Brewing relies on natural microflora to sour it. The finished product is a blend of one-, two-, and three-year-old beer. In the first sip, caramelized malt and a mild acidity balance Ghoulschip’s subtle earthiness. The finish of this light golden beer is dry and tart. Boo!
