Rustico Ballston's 2nd Annual
Great Pumpkin Ale Event
25 Pumpkin Ales on
Draft & Cask!
Thursday, October 30th ~ 6:00pm
As black cats, broomsticks, ghosts, & goblins make their annual appearance, so does our love affair with the great gourd that is pumpkin! Join us this Halloween as we offer up at least 25 Pumpkin Ales on draft and cask for your tippling pleasure!
This year we are ecstatic about our selections, which will include some extremely rare barrel-aged Pumpkin ales from Avery, including Rumpkin (16% Imperial Pumpkin Ale aged in Rum barrels) and Pump(KY)n (the NoVa debut of their Imperial Pumpkin Porter Aged in Bourbon barrels)...both on draft! We'll also be showcasing some AleWerks Pumpkin Ale on cask, Troeg's--brand new and scarce--Master of Pumpkins on draft, and classics like Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale, Southern Tier Pumking, Hardywood Park Pumpkin Saison, Schlafly Pumpkin Ale and Heavy Seas Greater Pumpkin Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Pumpkin Ale, all on draft as well...
There is no admission fee for this event, and all Pumpkin Drafts will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

Rustico Bottle Club
We're bringing together some of the most delicious and interesting brews
around with the launch of Rustico's brand-new Bottle Club. Our Beer
Director Greg Engert is compiling a rotating selection of notable beers,
often a mix of large-format and/or regular-sized bottles, to be
released on the second Monday of every other month. Your membership will
get you the monthly bottle pack, as well as entry into an exclusive
pick-up party, beginning at 4:00 PM on each Monday release day, with discounted drafts and passed bites exclusively
available for Bottle Club members. Each member will also receive a
limited edition tote bag for carrying the bounty of bottles. The next
pick-up party will be held on July 14th.
