Once again it's time for the Great Pumpkin Beer Festival! Elysian is holding it's pumpkin beer festival again this year at it's Elysian brewpub on Capitol Hill location. The festival will showcase The Great Pumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Dark o? the Moon Pumpkin Stout, Hansel and Gretel Ginger Pumpkin Pilsner, Jack o? Bite Barrel-aged Strong Scottish Pumpkin Ale, Mr. Yuck Sour Pumpkin Ale, Bete N?Owl Dark Belgian-style Pumpkin Ale, and a few others, all from Elysian?s brewers. In addition, 16 guest pumpkin beers will be poured from several Seattle-area brewers as well as special efforts from some of America?s best and most innovative brewers.

The high point of each GPBF is the 4 o? clock tapping of the Great Pumpkin, a huge gourd filled with pumpkin ale which has been sealed up with wax and allowed to undergo a second fermentation before having a tap hammered home for serving. Patrons line up dozens-deep to enjoy and comment on the year?s effort.

See you there! (Get there early, seating goes quickly!)
