Recap: Okto-Pumpkin Kashizalapooza

Upcoming Events at Craft Beer Cellar Belmont: CBC Belmont Calendar

Did you spend a relaxing Labor Day Weekend down on the Cape/up in the mountains/chillaxin’ on your couch?

Or did you spend it ROCKIN’ OUT with the Beer Geeks at Craft Beer Cellar Belmont’s First (Annual?) Okto-Pumpkin Kashizalapooza?

Way to pack the house, yo!
What a great turnout!

After holding off on selling pumpkin, Oktoberfest, and fall seasonal beers throughout the summer, we opened the flood gates and welcomed a seemingly endless stream of customers for six hours Sunday.

You. All. Are. The. Best!

The work started late Saturday evening when our fearless leaders Kate and Suzanne magical pumpkin fairies rearranged our entire store to make way for all the new beer. Early Sunday morning, Beer Geeks Adam, Tony, Nate, and Brett picked up where the fairies left off, transforming our little shop into a pumpkin wonderland. When the doors opened at noon, Beer Geek Marguerite poured The Traveler Beer Company’s Jack-O Shandy for thirsty patrons, while Beer Geek Lee provided samples of Wolaver’s Organic Pumpkin Ale, Ithaca Country Pumpkin, and Southern Tier Pumking (complete with cinnamon sugar rims and a splash of Southern Tier Crème Brûlée Stout. Mmmm…).

Southern Tier PumkingVisitors were also introduced to the ladies behind Twitter’s @RATEMYPUMPKINS who poured some of their favorite beers. Craft Beer Cellar is proud to partner with Alexandra and Nicola in the second year of @RATEMYPUMPKINS as they once again sample and review 61 pumpkin beers in 61 days (though we’ll see if we can’t convince them to go a little longer, too!). Though some selections aren’t available locally (it’s nice to have out of state friends, right?), pumpkin beers that are available will be featured daily at the Craft Beer Cellar stores.

Those who attended will also recall the coloring pages designed and curated by beer writer/beer badass Heather Vandenengel. If you colored a page on Sunday, or if you would like to color one this week, we will happily display it on our ‘Wall of Awesome’ (A.K.A. the only wall in the store that isn’t already lined with beer).

Won't you help us fill our wall, please?
Won’t you help us fill our wall, please?

We would also like to send a special shout out to our Belmont Center neighbors, Quebrada Baking Company, whose pumpkin bread was a-maz-ing. If you haven’t stopped at Quebrada before or after a visit to our spot, well, then, we just don’t even know. DO IT!

So in conclusion, the pumpkin, Oktoberfest, and fall seasonals are on the shelves with more coming soon (we’re looking at you, Cambridge Brewing Company Great Pumpkin Ale). But if pumpkin isn’t your thing, we’ve still got roughly 1000!!! others in stock. Come on by, we’re here all month.
