The Debate is On!

Best pumpkin ale to be decided at Bellevue event

The fourth annual Great Pumpkin Debate is back, on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 6 to 10 p.m. in Bellevue State Park’s Figure 8 Barn.

Hosted by Peco’s Liquors, the adults-only night will include a hayride through the park, a late night bonfire, and of course the great debate. There will be numerous pumpkin ales to vote on, but only one can win.

Live music and barbecue, provided by Big Rick’s BBQ, will be part of the festivities.
“The event is a lot of fun,” says Ed Mulvihill of Peco’s. “It’s a throw-back to being a kid, going on a hayride in the fall, enjoying the season, only it’s a grownup version with pumpkin beer.”

Tickets, which include the hayride and samples of the beers, are $30.
Proceeds will go toward the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary. “Let’s be honest, you can’t have great Delaware craft beer without clean water,” says Mulvihill.
