Fordham Spiced Harvest Ale Takes Bronze at European Beer Star Competition

By Lauren Bigelow

Dover, DE – Fordham Spiced Harvest Ale won the bronze medal in the herb and spice beer category at the European Beer Star competition in Munich, despite only being in its second year of production.

The most recent seasonal addition to Fordham’s six-pack portfolio, Spiced Harvest Ale was released in early fall. A light amber color, this medium bodied ale is spiced with cinnamon, ginger, honey, allspice, clove and pumpkin.  A sessionable 6.6% ABV, it flew off the shelves.  In Delaware, the beer was sold out within three weeks of leaving the brewery.

Casey Hollingsworth, Fordham Brewing’s Vice President of Sales, stated, “The brewery really hit the mark with this beer.  Harvest ales are a very tough style to balance and the brewers skillfully allowed the spices to play a part but not dominate.  Spiced Harvest has created a real cult following, so we see this as a staple in our portfolio for many years to come.”

This is Spiced Harvest Ale’s first medal. It will return to shelves next year.
