CLEVELAND, Ohio – Market Garden Brewery’s ninth annual Pumpkin Beer Fest is under way – with a few twists thanks to Covid, of course.
Instead of one day, it’s a week, co-owner Sam McNulty said. The previous fests were held over one day. But to disburse crowds the brewery decided to space this year’s fest over five days, running today through Sunday, Oct. 11.
“With distancing and all the Covid protocols, instead of having one packed festival evening, it’s the entire week,” he said.
• Franklin Castle Pumpkin Spice Ale
• Magis Cider with a pumpkin-spice rim
• Magis Peary Cider
• Mulled Magis Cider cocktail (“for those cooler nights around the fireplace,” McNulty said.)
• Market Garden fall seasonal cocktail line-up. He said the brewery is down to its last few kegs of Summer Shandy, so “we’re bridging summer and fall” by concocting cocktails with it.
