In our humble opinion, you can never have enough pumpkin beer. If you agree, then you definitely want to clear your calendar on Saturday, October 25, and head to Iron Hill West Chester’s Gathering of the Gourds multi-tap event.

Ready for your share of pumpkin love? These 18 special beers will be tapped starting at noon.  Two beer flights (both featuring a mix of Iron Hill and guest brewery beers) will be available, each with nine samples. Also on the schedule for the day: a pumpkin firkin will be tapped at 3 p.m., and giant jeroboam bottles of Ichabod and Bruce-Camp Ale will be poured at 2 and 4 p.m. Since it’s almost Halloween, costumes are encouraged too!


You know we wouldn’t let you go hungry, either. Throughout the day we’ll be serving a pumpkin- and squash-inspired featured menu to pair perfectly with the day’s tap list. King of the Hill members, be sure to enter our raffle drawing for a pumpkin-themed basket filled with 2013 and 2014 Imperial Pumpkin Ale, pumpkin glasses and other goodies.

Join us for the ultimate party in honor of fall’s finest fruit. We’ll be looking for you on Saturday, October 25! While you’re here, Tweet with us, follow along on Facebook, or tag us on Instagram with the hashtag #GatheringOfTheGourds.
