There is a little known history with Cigar City’s Good Gourd, the brewery’s pumpkin beer. There was the first year’s release, in 2011. This year, the recipe was tweaked a little bit and released again.
But there are a couple of side projects with this brew. Last year, a tiny batch of Good Gourd Almighty was made. (Or… experimented with.) That was Good Gourd in rum. It really gives Avery’s Rumpkin a run for it’s money. Not released publicly.
That brings us to today. Cigar City introduces a Chocolate Good Gourd. That would be the imperial pumpkin ale with cacao nibs. A one and done keg. After it blows, spend your Halloween in Tampa today drinking Hunahpu. Tapping right after. You lucky Floridian bastards. (And beautiful females of course.)
