Great Pumpkin Beer Festival

Tickets for the 13th Annual GPBF on Friday, September 29th and Saturday, September 30th, are completely sold out online and at all of our locations. We hope that you got your tickets, we’re looking forward to seeing everyone at Pumpkinfest!


2017 marks the 13th year for Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Beer Festival – and we invite you to join us at a brand new location – the Seattle Center, where 80+ pumpkin beers (plus a couple surprises) from near and far will be poured, including twenty or so from Elysian’s pumpkin-crazed brewers and their collaborators.

In addition to loads of pumpkin brews, local food trucks, Chaotic Noise Marching Corps, KEXP DJs Riz Rollins & Stevie Zoom, pumpkin carving, and fall festivities scattered throughout the event – New to GPBF this year (drumroll please…) we are partnering with FRED HUTCH!

We are so excited to partner with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for GPBF this year. Elysian and Fred Hutch began a partnership five years ago through Obliteride, an annual bike ride where every rider-raised dollar goes toward lifesaving research at Fred Hutch. Building on the relationship, we continued to support Fred Hutch through Base2Space, which allows people an opportunity to climb up the Space Needle and raise funds for cancer research. And, earlier this year, we joined Fred Hutch again for Slayride Banked Slalom, a race on the slopes of Stevens Pass to generate even more dollars for the organization. When we decided, for the first time in the 13 years of GPBF, to look for a partner to join us in this event, we looked no further than Fred Hutch. We are incredibly proud to say that 100% of the proceeds of GPBF will be provided to Fred Hutch in our joint and continued quest to search for the cure.

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

As you know Orange is the theme – interpret that as you will but the more orange, the better! …and if you want to bust out a full costume, that’s always encouraged! 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.

More event details to follow, and please stay tuned to Elysian’s GPBF page as we fill in specifics like participating breweries, food vendors, and activities. For now, get your tickets, plan your costume – and we’ll see you there!

Quick note for all you Pumpkinfest fans – The weekend prior to GPBF, on Saturday, September 23rd, we will be hosting the 5th Annual Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off at our Production Brewery in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.
