Earlier this month Seattle’s Elysian Brewing hosted their 10th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival at their production brewery in the Georgetown neighborhood in South Seattle. Known for being the nation’s most pumpkin obsessed Brewery, Elysian just held their 10th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival in Seattle, where they featured over 80 pumpkin beers and tapped several 1000 pound pumpkins full of beer for a sold out crowd!
If you couldn’t make it up to Seattle for Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Beer Fest this year and you live in Oregon you are in luck! Elysian is taking their Great Pumpkin Beer Fest on the road via their Great Pumpkin Roadshows in Eugene, Portland, Bend, and Salem.
