Lurking the Imposter

Apparently elections are around the corner. Is there a candidate running on making Halloween a national holiday, allowing growth hormone to be readily available, and ensuring my hard earned tax dollars go to education?


Great Pumpkin

Growler of 'The Great Pumpkin' helps ease missing Elysian's Fest.


PUNK'N Harvest Pumpkin Ale - Unita Brewing Company

Vanilla lacing, autumnal color, and crisping clove aromas.

Fairly natural pumpkin starch taste with a spiced finish.

Can't pass up the chance to try a new pumpkin ale.

Quadruple Pumpkin Corned Beef

Corned beef coated in brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg then dropped in a dutch oven on low with DFH 'Punkin' Pumpkin Ale, Elysian 'Night Owl' Pumpkin Ale, Elysian 'The Great Pumpkin' Pumpkin Ale, and freshly plucked pumpkin pieces.

Cooking between the lines, that's what makes my life worthwhile.


Bourbon Aged Roast Pumpkin

Trumps a living dead pandemic. Huge thanks to the finely fanged folks at Fremont Brewery.

The Great Pumpkin - Elysian Brewing Company (2010)

It's back to the 1st beer reviewed for the 1 year anniversary post.

Taken in at cozy, windows open and corned beef cooking in the oven, room temperature.  Frosted buttery pumpkin aromas with a cinnamon seed brittle bite. One of my favorites.  7.7%.

To Heavy for Wraps Salmon

Net Caught King Salmon, Egg, Amana Orange Tomato, Cucumber, Tomato, Red Bell Pepper, Avocado, Mango, Lemon, Romaine Lettuce


Dark O' The Moon - Elysian Brewing Company (2010)

I think '09 was the first year that Elysian put this into the bottle.  No better start to the best month.

Shifting cinnamon, ginger, & cocoa aromas.  Coated in a hide of confiture de lait and rabietic roasted pumpkin marrow.

As it warms both hypertrichosis & ravenous spiced chocolate kick in.

Does not mix with silver.
