Dark o’ the Moon (Elysian Brewing Co.)


Yay! Free Beer! At this point of the evening the fine folks from Elysian brought out the hammer and tapped into the ‘Great Pumpkin‘. For those of you who don’t know the Great Pumpkin was a very large pumpkin that had been hollowed out and filled with their DARK O’ THE MOON Pumpkin Stout. I didn’t hear how long the beer had been in the pumpkin, but I can tell you it was worth the wait. Continue reading

Coche de Medianoche (Elysian Brewing Co.


When I originally went to Elysian Fields to try to buy a ticket I asked the bartender what beer was his favorite. He said that he couldn’t pick a favorite, but his least favorite was the COCHE DE MEDIANOCHE. He claimed that the spiciness dominated the flavor and was undrinkable to him.

Mr. Yuck (Elysian Brewing Co.)


I’m always searching for new and interesting beers and when I learned there was going to be sour beers at Great Pumpkin Beer Fest (GPBF) I knew that I had to try some. With my newfound love for sours I keyed in on the sour beers being offered and selected MR. YUCK as my first beer of the day. I figured if I’m gonna go with a sour I might as well pick a beer from the host brewery, Elysian. This sour pumpkin ale has 4.8% alcohol by weight and 5.9% alcohol by volume. Continue reading
