About CGI

Michigan chestnuts are not only excellent to cook with but they are now used to make a special holiday Ale.

Nøgne Ø/Jolly Pumpkin/Stone Special Holiday Ale This is the second release of Special Holiday Ale, which was first brewed in San Diego in 2008. Each brew is following the same recipe, including Michigan chestnuts, white sage from southern California and Norwegian juniper berries, but differences in brewing and aging practices produce different beers. Cheers to being different! Skål!

Michigan-Grown Chestnuts are the Sweetest Tasting chestnuts and remain a flavorful Gluten-Free food that is a treat for everyone. People with wheat allergies, such as Celiac Disease, may benefit from this tasteful addition to their diet, while Vegetarians and Vegans alike will enjoy the unique recipes that can be made from this sunshine-created food. Chestnuts contain proteins and the lowest fat content of any edible nut. Chestnuts are full of vitamins C, A, E, and B-complexes including folates, and the minerals copper, manganese, iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and zinc. Chestnuts have always been and will always remain an excellent food. Those looking for an all-natural product with no preservatives will find chestnut to be an excellent food. They are a good source of fiber and the few fats they have are known to be a rich source of mono-unsaturated fatty acids, which help lower total LDL (bad cholesterol) and increase HDL (good cholesterol). Chestnuts are relatively low in calories when compared to other natural seeds and nuts. Browse our product line to learn more about our Michigan-grown chestnuts.
