PUMPKIN ALE
A spicy pumpkin beer, crafted as a “Christmas Ale”.

WHY COUCHE?

Couche means pumpkin in Aosta Valley local language.

 

STYLE

The term Pumpkin Ale originated in America during the colonial period when settlers had little access to barley malt, obliging them to find alternative ingredients.
