It’s getting to be that time of year when everything turns…to pumpkin! Our seasonal friend, Punkin Ale is making its way back to our taps and we are celebrating! For us, this favorite brew announces the end of summer and the approach of fall.
So what’s the deal with Punkin? Straight from the brewery: “We describe it as a full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices.”
Sounds great, right? Loyal fans agree. As we get into a cooler season, this beer keeps things warm without being too heavy.
“In fact, Punkin Ale made its debut as it claimed first prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest. Yes, that was a full 6 months before we even opened our doors for business!”
Get in on the festivities at Falls Church, Gaithersburg, or Fairfax…
Join us in Fairfax for live music, games, an outdoor grill and bar, and face painting on Saturday. On Sunday, we keep the party going! And finally, we are showing Monday who’s boss with a Fairfax Pint Night (so make sure you come out for your free Punkin pint glass!) Be sure to pick up a Punkin Ale growler when you stop in!
Saturday is the big day! Gaithersburg fans won’t want to miss a day of live music including local favorite, Bad Influence who will be on stage at 10pm. And don’t forget to come early for a pig roast, free face painting, cornhole, and bear pong.
Did you happen to miss Pint Night and Ladies Night?! Be here on Saturday for the release of Punkin Ale featuring food and drinks specials all day like Punkin Flan!
Get ready… It’s going to be an off-center, beer-tastic weekend!
