Elysian's 9th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Fest

Elysian GPBF

The 9th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival is just around the corner at Elysian Brewing in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. This year’s festival takes place over the course of three days, with one session each day from October 4 – 6, 2013.

If you are planning on attending, hopefully you already have your tickets for the Friday and Saturday sessions since they now are sold out. Tickets remain available for Sunday’s session. Sunday tickets are available at all 3 Elysian locations along with Full Throttle Bottles.

This years GPBF will feature more beer varieties than ever including sours, Belgians, porters, barrel-aged, IPA, cider, amber, barleywine, gruit, rauchbier, hefeweizen, classic pumpkin ales, and their first ever geuze and zwicklebiers!  You will find many ingredients beyond classic pumpkin pie spices including plums, coffee, habaneros, cranberries, chocolate, lavender, nettle, epazote and coconut.
