City Tap House University City Pumpkin Smash 2016

City Tap House University’s Pumpkin Smash 2016 will feature a 200 lb. Pumpkin Firkin, over 25 Pumpkin Beers, AND the Opportunity to ACTUALLY Smash Pumpkins (for charity). Sounds like fun, eh?!

City Tap at University City Philadelphia’s renowned craft beer restaurant is pleased to present Pumpkin Smash! 2016 on Sunday, October 9th between 1pm-5pm.

The celebration includes a 200lb pumpkin firkin (literally hollowed out 200lb pumpkin full of beer), over 25 different pumpkin beers on tap — including some of Beer Advocate’s Top Rated Pumpkin Beers such as Elysian Brewery Company’s The Great PumpkinAvery Brewery Company’s Pump[KY]n & Southern Tier Brewing Company’s Pumking; a brunch menu chock-full-of delicious pumpkin themed fares, and, of course, the actual smashing of pumpkins (for charity).

While Pumpkin Smash! 2016 is clearly a grand celebration of everything pumpkin, it is also a celebration of our furry canine friends — as City Tap House has teamed up with Morris Animal Refuge to help find every dog in this city a loving home by smashing pumpkins for $25 donations.

Guests are welcome to bring their pooches along, AND dress them up in the cutest costumes they can find for a chance to win a $50 City Tap House gift card.

So in a pumpkin-shell, City Tap House’s Pumpkin Smash! 2016 will have live music, pumpkin painting for the kids, a bounce house for the kids, pumpkin smashing, dogs, the Philadelphia Eagles on nearly every television screen, and tons of beer and food to get the fall season started! What could be better?
