Calling all Pumpkinheads :: Do you love all things pumpkin, especially beer?  Do you rush to get your hands on the first batches of Elysian's delicious pumpkin brews each year? Do you remember when Elysian had their Great Pumpkin Beer Festival on Capitol Hill?  Or, do you just love the idea of parading around in costume, to be honored by thousands of people at Elysian Brewery this fall?

From now through September 15, Elysian invites you to submit your video*, letting us and the world know why you deserve to be the King or Queen of Pumpkinfest! Take inspiration from the notes above, and be creative, and maybe a little crazy.

We just ask that you limit your videos to 1 minute or less. You may apply solo, or as a couple (King/King, King/Queen, Queen/Queen - whatever your pomp and circumstance.)... just no pets please. Also, applicants must be 21+ as our Pumpkin Festival is a 21+ Beer Event.
