The Great Pumpkin Jam Continues a Tasty Tradition at the Brewerie by Ryan Smith

Wednesday, Nov. 25

There’s just something about late fall, around Thanksgiving, that brings out the drinker in a lot of us.

And when the drinks are beers, and the beers are (mostly) born of pumpkin, and all choice-quality, and all local, I mean c’mon - that’s autumnal splendor right there.

Ergo, the Brewerie at Union Station once again presents the Great Pumpkin Jam, a Thanksgiving Eve party to commemorate, celebrate, and/or mourn the tapping of this year’s final kegs of its “Pumpkin Pie,” “Pumpkin Bomb,” and “Gourd Lourd” harvest-season brews.

There’ll also be local guest taps featuring Lavery Brewing Company’s “Devil’s Pumpkin,” Erie Brewing Company’s “Johnny Rails,” and Meadville-based TimberCreek Tap & Table’s “Creek O’ Lantern,” plus other seasonal bottles on special.

Along with all that, there’s a return (and what’s become a traditional) performance by Erie rockers East Ave, jamming out a live acoustic set.

Happy Thanksgiving, indeed. – Ryan Smith
