On the spirits side, the festival is partnering once again with Half Moon Bay Distillery to serve up deelish artisanal cocktails. The cocktail menu includes pumpkin-flavored Jack-o-tinis and traditional Bloody Mary’s. Half Moon Bay Distillery is a small craft distillery producing the highest quality, hand-crafted distilled spirits – Purissima Vodka and Harvard Avenue Gin – in small batches.

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 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 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 Full Swing IPA or easy-drinking Kolsch style pale ale.

Also on tap are Kona Brewing Company’s crisp, easy-going, pale-gold Longboard Lager, hoppy, easy-drinking Hanalei Island IPA, and tropically refreshing Big Wave Golden Ale, plus Golden Road Mango Cart, a light, refreshing Wheat Ale bursting with mango flavor, and low-carb, easy drinking Michelob Ultra.

For another refreshing alternative, festivalgoers can enjoy delightful Mike’s Hard Lemonade made from scratch using real fruit juice and hand selected lemons.

Cool off, replenish and hydrate with a bottle of PathWater, 100% responsibly and locally sourced water in an aluminum reusable bottle. Water provider Oollee will have a re-filling station for festivalgoers to replenish their reusable bottles with clean, fresh water.
