Elysian / Lost Abbey Avante Gourde


Brewed by Elysian Brewing
Seattle, Washington USA
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable | Ratings: 21 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 7.1%
Avant Gourde is a pumpkin biere de garde fermented with our house lager yeast and spiced with cinnamon, mace and clove. We brewed it in collaboration with Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, and brewmaster Tomme Arthur himself came up to hang out and brew with us on Capitol Hill. Later we went out on Howard’s boat. Avant Gourde was brewed with pale, Munich, C-45 and C-77 Crisp crystal and chocolate malt, with brown sugar in the boil, along with Magnum hops to bitter and flavor and Czech Saaz to finish.
