Great Pumpkin Festival at the Blind Tiger in the West Village
Wednesday, October 3rd 3:00PM

The crisp air of fall ushers in the new sights and sounds associated with autumn. The leaves are beginning to turn, sweaters are coming out of the closet, and in beer bars the excited question, “Do you have any Pumpkin Beer?” is now heard daily.

Lucky for us the answer is yes. Are Pumpkin Beers becoming more and more popular? It certainly seems like it. It all began innocently enough. When the first settlers began to brew beer they resorted to ingredients at hand to supplement the malt bill. That was it, a little innocent pumpkin added. It has now taken on a life of its own. Many Pumpkin Beers are spiced to be reminiscent of pumpkin pie and aim for a sweetness to drive the point home. However, as time passes the varieties of Pumpkin Beer multiply.

We like variety. We like to try the new and showcase the classic. This year we have everything from Pumpkin Stouts (two!) to a Pumpkin on nitro. Imperials? Yes. “Normal” Pumpkins? Yes. How about something really special like a year old La Parcela from Jolly Pumpkin? Done. What about a beer made with yams instead? Yep, The Bruery Autumn Maple should do it.

Come try the variety, there really is something for everyone. Don’t forget, every Wednesday Murray’s cheese is put out at 6PM. Good friends, great, interesting beer… a perfect way to greet the Fall.
