Pumpkinhead Pummels Old Thumper in the Championship Round

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

The Pumpkinhead phenomenon was downright obvious as Shipyard fans watched the fall brew sweep the Sweet 16 brackets, outscoring its opponent by triple digits in each round.

Knocking out two big-bodied beers in early contests, including "big brother" Smashed Pumpkin, Pumpkinhead went in to the Championship performance facing the proclaimed "beast of a beer" - Old Thumper.

The ever popular English bitter succumbed to the intense popularity of the refreshing autumn seasonal early on. Regardless of how the Championship played out, Shipyard is proud that so many of their brews are fan favorites. Cheers!
