Yes.  In version 1.1.90 and later, GnuPG has a "group" command, to be
used like this:

group groupname 0x99242560 0x33ED72C6 0x13300731

Then you can encrypt to "groupname" and GnuPG will expand that to the
listed keys.  Note that the 1.1.x series are development only versions
of GnuPG that will eventually become version 1.2.
