Elysian Brewing × Halloween

It’s dark outside and there’s an ominous knock at the door. Were you expecting a guest? Your pulse quickens. Palms begin to sweat. You can hear your heart beating out of your chest. You open the door and that’s when it happens… you see the person, the thing, in front of you. Is it dead or alive? You can’t tell. You start to scream, are you imagining this or is it true?

During Halloween week this year, it’s true. Elysian Brewing has tapped Georgetown Morgue, Seattle’s premier haunted house, for the scariest beer delivery of all time. Scare actors from the morgue will haunt your doorstep, and nightmares, as they deliver Elysian’s pumpkin beer variety pack as part of the brewery’s “Scary Good Delivery Service.”

The real question here – is there anything scarier than a fridge without beer in it? This Halloween week, the brewery and morgue will aim to make that true. On Wednesday, October 27th and Thursday, October 28th, Elysian and Georgetown Morgue will spook Seattle locals who are ages 21+ with a dose of the creepy crawlies and a bone-chilling 12-pack of beer.

From brewing its first pumpkin beer in 1997 and creating the world’s first Imperial Pumpkin Ale in 2004 to launching the Great Pumpkin Beer Festival shortly after, Elysian is a pioneer in brewing pumpkin beer and offers a variety of beers made with Pacific Northwest-grown pumpkins. Not located in Seattle? Have no fear. Elysian’s to-die-for Pumpkin Variety Pack is available nationwide and features four beers that are sure to satiate pumpkin fans everywhere:

  • Night Owl: A very drinkable Pumpkin Ale brewed with pumpkin puree and juice, and spiced in conditioning with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice.
  • Punkuccino: A Pumpkin Ale with the attitude of a world-weary barista, Punkuccino packs a short shot of Stumptown coffee toddy with just a shake of cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • The Great Pumpkin: The world’s first Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Boasting intense aromas of pumpkin with sugar and spice on the nose, Great Pumpkin is a delectably smooth fall brew that pours a deep copper color with a ghostly white head.
  • Dark O’ The Moon: Spookily smooth and chocolatey with a slight smokiness on the nose, this Pumpkin Stout pours dark as night and is brewed with fresh pumpkin and pumpkin seeds with a hint of cinnamon.

Horror fans and thrill seekers ages 21+ can sign up for Elysian’s “Scary Good Delivery Service” HERE from October 14 through Wednesday, October 22. Deliveries will take place on Wednesday, October 27, and Thursday, October 28 from the dark hours of 5:00pm – 9:00pm PST.

Top 5 Songs For Casinos

There are some people that can get down with the gambling songs. For a good casino, the building needs to have some good tunes. With that said, these are the top five songs that are gambling related, and a good listen when you are trying to win big. 

Honorable Mention: “A Good Run of Bad Luck” by Clint Black

While taking a gamble on playsugarhouse, maybe this song will help you go on a good run, no pun intended. The song was released in 1994 and was at the top of the charts during this time. The country themed song is uptempo and jam-packed with gamlbing related content. The song talks about a gamble with a crush on another woman. He has a mission to spend tons of money on her. He makes mention of having a stretch of bad luck, but refuses to give up on this venture. 

No. 5: “House of Cards” by Tyler Shaw

In 2015, Shaw released this hit pop song that uses a deck of cards as the main metaphor. He mentions having a void in love, but when he hits the jackpot with the Queen of Hearts, he finally gets back to winning in a heartfelt way. With many gambling references, this is a great song to feature in any casino. 

No. 4: “Gambling Man” by The Overtones

The pop song came out in 2010 with references to “taking a gamble” on love and succeeding. The narrator falls in love with a beauty and he places all of his bets on her. The narrator is not typically someone who gambles, but he believes that the love he feels is worth the risk. If you want to know how it ends, take a listen next time you are sitting down with a deck of cards. 

No. 3: “Still the Same”: by Bob Seger

The 1978 rock single begins with the narrator meeting an old friend who is a successful professional gambler. The gambler teaches the narrator that he puts his faith in the cards instead of people and knows when to walk away. It’s definitely an old school banger. 

No. 2: “Love Is A Losing Game” by Amy Winehouse

Want to get lost in a Vegas? This contemporary R&B song describes a woman feeling disappointed and lonesome. Her partner rejected her and won big in a gambling setting, which left the woman feeling like she had the losing hand. In 2006, Winehouse wrote this song based on her own troubled relationship.

No. 1: “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga

How can this not be the hit single at the top of this list? This addicting song revolving around sex and gambling broke the radio in 2008. The narrator makes plenty of gambling and sexual innuendos, while stirring in a hand of Texas hold’em. Lady Gaga created a masterpiece with this song. Hearing “p-p-p-poker face” will continuously ring in your head for hours, which is why it should be played in every casino.

Gracie Abrams – minor

Today, emerging songwriter Gracie Abrams shares her highly awaited debut project, minor. A stunning showcase for her nuanced lyricism and mesmerizing vocals, the seven-song project features Abrams’s acclaimed singles “21,” “I miss you, I’m sorry,” and “Long Sleeves.” minor is available now via Interscope Records at all digital retailers HERE.

Today also marks the premiere of the video for “Friend,” a particularly poignant track from minor. The beautifully shot visual follows the 20-year-old artist as she rides around Los Angeles alone, journeying through the city’s enchanted outskirts, chaotic freeways, and lonesome streets while candidly sharing her story of betrayal and loss.

Watch the video for “Friend” by Gracie Abrams HERE.

Executive-produced by Blake Slatkin, minor spotlights the quietly captivating artistry that’s won Abrams praise from outlets like NME (who hailed her “painfully honest tales of heartbreak draped in delicate melodies that carry much more intrigue than the usual run-of-the-mill singer-songwriter”) and i-D (who noted that her voice “cradl[es] the power to break even the toughest heart”). With each song centered on her unguarded yet finely layered songwriting, minor finds Abrams collaborating with producer/songwriters like Joel Little, Benny Blanco, Jim-E Stack, Sarah Aarons and Caroline Pennell.

In a full-circle moment for Abrams, minor features the first of her songs to draw widespread attention: the project’s bittersweet title track, penned by Abrams at age 17. Now a fan favorite, after Abrams shared clips of the song on social media, “minor” offers an early glimpse into the graceful balance of raw outpouring and sharply detailed self-reflection that would come to define her music. That approach soon proved undeniable to listeners around the world, as evidenced by “21” and “I miss you, I’m sorry” each recently surpassing 10 million streams on Spotify.

Through the years, Abrams has shared homespun clips of her songs on social media, amassing over 290k followers on Instagram before she’d even released her first track.

Named an artist to watch by Pigeons & Planes, Fader, and iD — and crowned one of seven breakout female musicians by Vogue UK — Abrams considers herself a songwriter, first and foremost. After writing her first song at the age of eight, she went on to earn a devoted following on the strength of her indelibly personal lyrics and magnetic vocal delivery. Last fall, Abrams made her official debut with “Mean It” — an intensely vulnerable piece hailed by Ones To Watch as “pure, sentimental, and undeniably beautiful.”
