Elysian Night Owl Pumpkin Ale

I absolutely loved how close this beer was to smelling and tasting like pumpkin. Not everyone will enjoy such a strongly pumpkin tasting beer, but its a characteristic of pumpkin beers which I seek (more pumpkin = more please).

The Wise ESB was the first beer we brewed, back in April of 1996; it was soon followed by Dragonstooth Stout, the Immortal IPA, Zephyrus Pilsner and Perseus Porter. Along with the Avatar Jasmine IPA, which has been with us since 2005, these beers constitute the core of our lineup. They have changed a bit over time, as new hop varieties have arisen and new ideas have struck us.

Night Owl Pumpkin Ale is our most popular seasonal offering. It began its life in the tiny Gameworks brewery we operated from 1997 to 2002, but soon outgrew even our Capitol Hill brewery. Night Owl and the rest of our seasonals – Bete Blanche, our deceptive and delicious spring Tripel, Loser, our substantial summer ale, and Bifrost Winter Ale – are now brewed at our production brewery in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.
