Scenes from Killer Pumpkin Fest 2012 at Green Dragon

Killer Pumpkin Fest 2012 at the Green Dragon was even bigger and better than it was last year. With more than 30 pumpkin beers to choose from spanning many base beer styles, there was a little something for everyone, provided you enjoy pumpkin in your brew. With the exception of Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Fest in Seattle, the Green Dragon event was the largest of its kind anywhere in the world.

L to R: Rogue's Brett Joyce, Brewpublic's Angelo De Ieso, and Elysian's Dick Cantwell at Killer Pumpkin Fest 2012 at Green Dragon (photo by Charlie Herrin of Beer Traveler TV)Speaking of Elysian, the Seattle brewery came with force with a dozen pumpkin brews of their own. Chief Pumpkineer, Dick Cantwell was in attendance for the event to spread the gourd-eous goods. The buzz beer of the event appeared to be Cascade Brewing‘s Smashed Pumpkin, a sour rum barrel-aged strong ale that disappeared quickly. There were pumpkin pilsners (Elysian, 10 Barrel Brewing), pumpkin porters (Oakshire, Beer Valley Brewing), and even a pumpkin IPA (Hop Squash made by Elysian and Ninkasi Brewing). Other highlights included Hopworks Urban Brewery‘s El Gourdo II: Electric Boogaloo, a pumpkin conditioned ale with vanilla, Walking Man’s Sass-Squash, and Rock Bottom’s Headless Horseman. But really, all the beers were at very least quite interesting.

Here’s a collection of photos from this year’s Killer Pumpkin Fest. Thanks to the craft beer lovers at Green Dragon and Rogue for their hard work in helping us put together on hell of an event: Read More…

The madness begins. 10 days of Killer Beer has kicked off, and if you missed the opening KillerBeerSummit / MikeFest at Roscoe’s, there’s still plenty of great beer to experience throughout the week / weekend.

KillerBeerWeek kicked off early on Saturday as we celebrated Saraveza’s 4th Anniversary with the grand opening of their Bad Habit room next door. Great beer, as is to be expected, and a special Saraveza deer cake made by Lori Adams Clinton aka the Sugar Pimp.

At Roscoe’s on Sunday night, Jeremy Lewis and Quyen Ly worked with us to lock in 16 taps of amazing limited edition brew including several Mike beers brewed by and for Mikes / Michaels / Micahs of the beer community.

-Buckman Botanical Brewery Michaelob Ultra
