Maplewood Creepy Ginger

Maplewood Creepy Ginger bottle

Maplewood Creepy Ginger, a year-round Belgian-style strong ale.

This beer is more than a hilarious name – the name serves as a double entendre, as it boasts organic ginger root that has been added post fermentation. A nice, spicy touch to this beer’s light and slightly boozy body.

Brewed to celebrate one of the red-headed founders of Maplewood Brewing Company, the Creepy Ginger is a Belgian-Style Golden Strong Ale brewed with a pilsner malt base and a healthy amount of spelt.

Maplewood Creepy Ginger is available in 22 ounce bottles and draft.

Style: Belgian-style Strong Ale (w/ Ginger)
