(Portland, OR) – Autumn! The harvest, the beautiful leaves, the cool weather, and of course, the beer. Ground Breaker Brewing is releasing their annual batch of Squash Ale, a unique gluten-free beer made with over three hundred pounds of locally grown squash from family-owned and operated Love Farm Organics. This is the brewery’s sixth release of the year in their Experiment Ale Series.

Boasting over twenty-five pounds of Connecticut Field and Sugar Pie pumpkin per barrel, Squash Ale is crafted with a unique production process that makes it unlike other seasonals. After being picked, the squash is sliced, quartered, seeded, then roasted in a giant oven at Jensen’s Bread & Bakeries, a local dedicated gluten-free bakery.

Ground Breaker’s one-of-a-kind seasonal is “triple-squashed.” Squash is added to the mash tun, boil kettle, and fermenter. Seeds are toasted, crushed, and also added to the mash. The ale has a “wet-squash” addition to the fermenter which consists of squash that has been slow roasted for several days into a creamy squash butter. 

“It’s a difficult beer to make, it’s a long process. We make it because we love it and our customers love it,” commented James Neumeister, Ground Breaker’s head of R&D. “It is one of the few beers in our Experiment Ale Series that we release every year.”

Squash Ale will be released on draught and in 22 oz bottles on October 25th in the Ground Breaker Brewing Gastropub. Three Squash Ale taproom exclusives will be available on draught at the gastropub, Cranberry, Spiced Latte, and Garam Masala. Squash Ale will be rolling out to stores in Ground Breaker territory following the release.
