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.

Halloween Trends on YouTube

You might notice some familiar names with the Top 10 most popular costumes on YouTube this year: Two years after the release of Suicide Squad, Harley Quinn continues to show up as a popular costume idea on YouTube, while Disney characters Elsa and Anna from Frozen made their way back onto the list again (after dropping out in 2017). And, in parallel to its massive success on YouTube overall, Fortnite-themed costumes have broken into the Top 10 Halloween list this year, with costumes ideas from the game trending globally as well as in the US, UK, and Canada.

This year, we also took a closer look at which trending costumes are new to 2018’s ranking. Most notably: Fortnite, Stranger Things, and Mario Bros are trending this year, likely due to continued popularity around their corresponding games and titles.  Hocus Pocus-inspired costume ideas are also spiking in terms of views, just in time for the 25th anniversary of the movie’s debut. Here’s a look at some newcomers, ranked by views:

Ghosts of Big Sur

Everyone loves a good ghost story, and the best ghost stories are the ones that are true. Culture Editor Tom Wilmer traveled along the California Coast via Highway 1 through Big Sur and learned all about one of the most haunted routes in America. Wilmer spoke with Rory Cosma at Ragged Point Inn and Resort and was told the spookiest ghost stories of Big Sur. Check out Wilmer’s podcast and hear it all for yourself. You may want to sleep with the lights on after this one.
