Thirsty, my friend? Head straight for Half Moon Bay Art & Pumpkin Festival, October 13-14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on historic Main Street … the adult beverage offerings have never been better.

To honor the Pumpkin Festival, as they do by tradition every year, the talented brewmasters at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company have created a special batch of Mavericks Pumpkin Harvest Ale, a Pale Ale made with locally-grown Sugar Pie pumpkins that are roasted with a secret blend of spices and added to the brew kettle. The result is a subtle pumpkin pie spice flavor balanced by a biscuity maltiness. Tasty! The Mavericks Pumpkin Harvest Ale will be available at the Pumpkin Festival and at Half Moon Bay Brewing Company throughout October. Plus try their refreshing, hop-happy IPA or easy-drinking Kolsch style pale ale. 

Craft beer lovers will be in Hops Heaven with the world-class draft brews from Kona Brewing Company and Michelob Ultra.

Sip and savor luscious varietals from Half Moon Bay Winery including this year’s festival-label Sangiovese, a delicious blend of Sangiovese, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and easy-drinking Coastal Fog White Wine, a refreshing Sauvignon Blanc/Viognier blend from Mendocino County – plus Barefoot Citrus Fusion, La Nebbia Sparkling Wine and mimosas –– all available by the glass at two booths hosted by the Half Moon Bay Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau. The Pumpkin Festival-label Sangiovese will also be available by the bottle (to take home) at The Beautification Committee merchandise booths.
