From pumpkin ice cream and doughnuts to complimentary carving pumpkins.
Three beers tapped straight from pumpkins and it's not exactly easy to pick a favorite.
But to keep my head from being lopped off I would choose the festival namesake - The Great Pumpkin.
Buttery clove and toasted pumpkin meat. Possibly the best pumpkin beer ever?
Dark o' the Moon was liquid delight that had even more of a cinnamon sugar pie taste after being drained from the massive gourd.
Most Unique: Coche de Medianoche - Cumin, guajillo chilies, and cayenne with roasted pumpkin seeds. 7.5%.
Best Name: Saison of the Witch - 120 pounds of roasted Baby Pam pumpkins and fennel fronds. 5.6%.
The Strongest: Rumpkin - Avery Brewing spiced this perfectly and aged the concoction in Gosling Rum barrels for 6 months. 16%.
The Subtlest: Kürbitinus Pumpkin Dunkelhefeweizenbock - Bavarian yeast, pumpkin in the mash, kettle, and fermenter. 6.65%.
Craziest Color: PK-47 Pumpkin Malt Liquor - Corn sugar, yellow #6, and red #4. This looked like radioactive pumpkin juice. 6.2%.
Most Anticipated: Pumpkinator - Saint Arnold Brewing came through with an imperial molasses coated pumpkin stout. One of the best at the festival and from one of the greatest cities. 10%.
Most Surprising: Great Pumpkin Ale - Cambridge Brewing had the other "GP." MA grown barley and sugar pumpkins. 4.4%.
Best Non-Spiced: SasquatchKin Imperial Pumpkin Stout - Black Raven Brewing took away the standard spices and left only Kabocha pumpkins, sugar pie pumpkin, acorn squash, and kuri squash. ? %.
Most Bizzare: Punk Rauchen - Silver City had a curiously tasting smoked apple wood pumpkin beer that lived up to the ash. 6.3%.
Battle of the Bourbons: Elliot Bay's PABST (pumpkin and bourbon stout together) coupled organic spices in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels. 9%. Fremont Brewing's Punk'n B-bomb defiles roasted pumpkin flesh in 20 year old bourbon barrels. 9%. The winner? Whoever consumed either.
Plenty of others that deserve mention. After two days I noticed I had a stem growing from my head.
