Elysian Brewing’s Great Pumpkin Roadshow comes to SW Washington and Oregon

Pumpkin spice beers are back baby! Just like the coming of Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, Elysian Brewing is rolling out the pumpkin beers with their 14th Annual Great Pumpkin Festival and the traveling Great Pumpkin Roadshow. It all starts with the GPF in Seattle on October 5th and 6th before the Great Pumpkin Roadshow comes to SW Washington and Oregon for multiple stops.
