After a postponement due to some forecasted stormy weather, our annual Killer Pumpkin Fest returns to Green Dragon on Saturday, October 29th. Celebrating all things pumpkins, this daylong event will take place inside and out in front of Green Dragon from 11:00am to Midnight.

The highlight of the day of course is pumpkin beer as 40 or so pumpkin beers and ciders will be pouring throughout the day. All offerings will be available in sample size or full pours. Then at 5:00pm, Elysian Brewing will tap its giant gourd filled beer outside for all nearby to enjoy.
