Elysian Brewing's 7th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival
"The Granddaddy of 'em All," Elysian Brewing's 7th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival will be held October 8 (12-10pm) and 9 (12-6pm) in the parking lot of their new production brewery in Seattle's Georgetown neighborhood. The fest will feature over forty pumpkin beers from breweries across the country, including more than ten from Elysian's pumpkin-mad brewers. The highlight of the festival is always the tapping of the Great Pumpkin itself, an enormous 200-pound (or so) pumpkin which has been scorched on the inside and filled with still-fermenting beer, sealed with wax and allowed to condition until tapping at four o' clock on each day of the festival.
In addition to Elysian's core pumpkin line-up (Night Owl, The Great Pumpkin Ale, Dark o' the Moon Pumpkin Stout and Hansel & Gretel Ginger Pumpkin Pilsner), this year's GPBF will introduce new pumpkin beers from Elysian such as Coche de Medianoche, a Mexican-themed pumpkin ale with cumin, cinnamon, black pepper and chilies as well as roasted pumpkin seeds, and Ursa Orange, Elysian's Berliner Weiss sour ale served with pumpkin syrup. Also featured will be pumpkin beers from some of America's most interesting and revered brewers. For the second year Santa Rosa, California's Russian River Sour Pumpkin will be served, along with Ghouleschip from Allagash Brewing in Portland Maine, spontaneously fermented on Halloween night, 2008, La Parcela from Jolly Pumpkin Ales of Dexter, Michigan, as well as many local offerings such as Punk Rauchen, a smoked pumpkin ale from Silver City Brewing in Silverdale, Washington. This year for the first time there will be an international representative as well, a pumpkin beer brewed by Norway's Nøgne Øl brewery!
