Great Pumpkin Beer Fest



The 12th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival on Saturday, October 8th is completely sold out online and at all of our restaurants. We hope that you got your tickets, we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at Pumpkinfest!

The festival is ONE DAY ONLY this year, Saturday, October 8, at a brand new location :: the North Lot of CenturyLink Field outside of Elysian Fields.

GPBF returns! 2016 marks the 12th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival – we invite you to join us inside and outside Elysian Fields in the North Lot of CenturyLink Field, where more than eighty pumpkin beers from near and far will be poured, including 20 or so from Elysian’s pumpkin-crazed brewers and their collaborators.

For those who haven’t been to GPBF: we have a giant, several-hundred pound pumpkin that is scooped, scorched, filled with Elysian pumpkin beer, sealed and conditioned, and then tapped at the fest for all to enjoy!

Orange is the theme – interpret that as you will – but we encourage you to embrace that color for your fest attire. If you’re one to bust out in full costume, you may be rewarded! Each day of the festival, some of our finest will be roaming through the crowds to select the most festive bunch to compete for a prize.

The weekend prior to GPBF, on Saturday, October 1, we will be hosting the 2nd Annual Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off at our Elysian Brewery in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.

You really brought it last year and, for the third year running, our theme is ORANGE! Interpret that any which way you will but definitely dress to impress. Check out last year’s pictures for inspiration. And, if you’re wanting to go above and beyond, check out the COSTUME CONTEST details!


During the festival, a few of our finest will scour through the throngs of orange-clad, pumpkin-passionate people and select a group of contestants to be judged on stage by a bizarre panel of Elysian’s jolliest pumpkinheads.

*Contestants can be individuals or groups, however…

**Only one prize will be awarded to the winner. If the winner is an individual, you get an amazing prize that you don’t have to share! If the winner is a group, you get to figure out how to split an amazing prize!

In the event of a tie… CHAOS.
