"It's the Great Kurbisleichen" Pumpkin Carving Event

  • Forest City Brewery 2135 Columbus Road Cleveland, OH, 44113 United States (map)

Don't miss the 2nd Annual "It's the Great Kurbisleichen" Pumpkin Carving – Down one of our Kurbisleichen Pumpkin Ales (early October release!) and get to work carving your own great pumpkin masterpiece at FCB. 


Join us for a festive fall afternoon of pumpkin carving, games, and brews at Forest City Brewery's outdoor Beer Garden (a.k.a. the Great CLE Pumpkin Patch). This year, the Great Kurbis Leichen (German for Pumpkin Corpse) will be in the Beer Garden – a giant pumpkin, grown right on Duck Island by the local community garden.

$10 per ticket on Eventbrite – gets you one pumpkin to carve, stencils, and entry for your pumpkin into the Pumpkin Carving Contest! Prizes will be awarded to the winning pumpkins. Purchasing a ticket in advance secures a pumpkin for you. If you would like to carve more than one pumpkin feel free to bring your own. All participants must be 21 + and show a valid ID to enter. Featured brews available at FCB will include: Kurbisliechen Pumpkin Beer, Wulfblut Dunkel, Duckenstein Belgian Dubbel, Old Haunt Brown Ale and many more...

Want a side of good karma to go with that beer?...You got it! This event is held to raise funds for the You Can You Will Foundation, a charitable organization that creates programs to help children and adults in the CLE community. All profits from ticket sales and additional donations go towards funding "I.S.P." – Inspiring Students’ Potential, School Empowerment Program.

*Please bring your own carving tools to this event. In case of inclement weather the party will be moved indoors to the Forest City Brewery Beer Hall.
