It’s Saturday, Oct. 30 in the Gaslamp Quarter and features 40 breweries as well as a special tapping of a 1,400-pound real pumpkin keg.
The idea was seeded in Seattle and has now spread to America’s Finest City. It is a full late afternoon and evening of pumpkin-themed brews, live entertainment, a costume contest with prizes for the top three and, to quote the organizers, “twisted experientials, squash-based foodie creations, hidden surprises and so much more!”
Here are the full details about it including the times, location and information on ticket prices.
