Elysian’s Pumpkin Beer Festival

Seattle’s Elysian Brewing is going the next step with the pumpkin beer trend: their Second Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival. On three separate days at three of their locations, they’ll be holding festivities and serving ten different pumpkin beers:

  • Night Owl Pumpkin Ale
  • The Great Pumpkin
  • Dark O’ the Moon Pumpkin Stout
  • Purple Pumpkineater Lavender Saison
  • Kürbitinus (dunkelweizen-ish)
  • Portergeist (smoked porter)
  • Steamy Hollow California Common Pumpkin Beer
  • 3 guest beers


At 4pm the tapping of the Pumpkin Conditioned Ale! An extremely large pumpkin filled with Portergeist smoked pumpkin porter, spiced in the pumpkin and allowed to go through a secondary fermentation in the pumpkin and tapped with traditional English cask taps.

That sounds like a lot of fun; I wish I lived closer to the Seattle area.

The event days are:

  • October 21st at Elysian: Capitol Hill
    Noon – 10pm
  • October 23rd through 27th at Elysian: TangleTown
  • October 28th at Elysian Fields
    Noon – 10pm

  1. Was fortunate enough to attend the final day of this on 10/28. Some good beers, a couple okay ones and one or two horrifically bad ones. I half-assedly wrote it up on my blog.
