Default Pumpkin Beer Festival - Seattle

Elysian Brewing Company is hosting their 3rd Annual Pumpkin Beer Festival this month. October 20th, Noon - 10:00pm at their Capitol Hill location and October 27, Noon - 10:00pm at Elysian Fields. I've attended the last two years and it is not to be missed.

Below is last years list of beers brewed by Elysian for the event:

Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
The Great Pumpkin
Dark 0′ the Moon Pumpkin Stout
Purple Pumpkineater Lavender Saison
Pumpkindoppelwiezenbock
Portergeist pumpkin porter
Steamy Hollow California Common Pumpkin Beer

Each year they also cask condition a portion of the Night Owl in a giant pumpkin. Here's a picture from last year's tapping.

They also feature Pumpkin beers from other guest breweries. If you are in the area either of these weekends and like Pumpkin beers, don't miss this event!

I plan on being there as well. The rest of you are invited as well, just take the money you'd spend on brewing equipment and brewing, and splurge on a plane ticket to Seattle.

Seattle area HBT'ers unite. Most of us have never met so get your butts down to Elysian this Saturday. McKBrew is making a special trip over from the peninsula and it's bound to be a great time had by all. You are all welcome to come by Naked City Brewing as well and sample my beers (including the barrel aged "Grapes of Wrath") I live within walking distance of Elysian. Hope to see you all there.

Too bad I just left Seattle last night. Thanks for the local beer tips though. I had a few Elysians while I was there. Cool bottles. Enjoy the pumpkin!

Brewtopia, I'll PM you Thursday or Friday and we can figure out when and where to meet, or let me know what works for you. I'll probably catch an early afternoon ferry and ensure my stomach is full before I start drinking beer this time.

Anyone else planning on coming down?

See you in a couple hours McKBrew, I pulled some Pumpkin Belgian Dubbel off the fermenter at Stix yesterday for you to try when you get here!

God, I wish. My wife and I are seriously considering moving to portland or seattle. Never been to that area of the country but have lots of friends out there that rave about it. Cool events like this are making the decision even easier.
