2nd Annual Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin Beer Event

On the corner of 12th and Green lies an off the beaten path craft beer bar. It’s not along a strip of stores or even in a neighborhood where you’d generally stop. But as they say, The Institute Bar is “making the ‘hood’ a better place one beer at a time” and this Saturday, October 2, from 12noon – 11pm, The Institute is celebrating fall in the hood with its 2nd Annual Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin Beer Event.

The first 10 people to show up at The Institute's Pumpkin Beer Event will receive a bottle of Black Flag Imperial Stout’09 or Brew Works Rudolf ‘09. The next five will receive a free bus ticket to the Craft Beer Express on November 13. Plus, the first 20 people to put down five pumpkin beers will get a free pumpkin pie.

The beer list for the event will include a total of 18 pumpkin beers from Dock Street, Dogfish Head, Elysian, Arcadia, Weyerbacher, Southampton, Roy Pitz, New Holland, Southern Tier, Smuttynose, Sixpoint, River Horse, Brew Works, Blue Point, Rock Art, Brooklyn and Wolaver's. There will also be a pumpkin inspired bar menu with eight pumpkin themed items to choose from.

The Institute’s two floors will be decked out in hay and pumpkins and the event is pay as you go, with no cover and a DJ on the 2nd floor. There’s also outdoor seating available and it’s supposed to be beautiful on Saturday, so get there early.
