North Country Brewing Company’s Halloween Bash will be taking place on October 28th, 2015. Every year, the event is a major sell out! North Country makes their excellent Late Night Pumpkin Ale which is adored by all. Plus, is that an Embalmer logo I see on the bottom of their poster?? I haven’t even had that one, but I’ve heard it rated as the best IPA some of my hophead friends have ever had.
Tickets go on sale October 5th at the brewpub in Slippery Rock.
We broke the story earlier this year about North Country Brewing’s Late Night Pumpkin Ale being canned this year.
The time has come.
The cans are scheduled to hit stores this month! Let us know of any sightings.
Is anyone else ADDICTED to the Fall seasonal from Brew Gentleman, Mexican Coffee? Welp, good news, it’s coming back September 16th!
For those of you that may be unfamiliar with Mexican Coffee, it’s a 6.5% ABV oatmeal stout spiced with Mexican vanilla and cinnamon, and it’s been the single most requested beer they’ve made to date. It’s highly addictive. You’ve been warned.
Well, this is shaping up to be a fun time! Rivertowne Brewing is putting on a Rhythm and Brews Festival. The live music is featuring Rusted Root! Plus several other bands. The idea of the founder was to have a great day of music and beer sampling in the great outdoors.

Speaking of North Country Brewing Co., there’s a rumor (that they started!) that they’ll be canning their pumpkin beer this Fall! If you’ve never had it, their pumpkin beer is a huge local favorite. For a while, it was only available for one night (their Halloween party). More recently, it’s been available for most of the Fall, but only at the brewpub. Here’s hoping!
While Saturday has sold out, tickets are still available for the Friday session of the Pittsburgh Summer BeerFest!
