Call me lazy

(everyone else does)

Just for the record, the Frog Queen prefers NO universe am I pouring wine into a pumpkin!

I am looking at this logically, from a drinking point of view......this whole process seems way harder than it needs to be.

Call me silly, but the logical way to drink a beer from a bottle would be to just open the beer and drink will have a lot more fun than:

1) Hollowing out a pumpkin....cause we all know how easy that is.
2) Pushing a spigot into a it just me or does that sound a bit wrong
BTW - who has a spigot just lying around....really
3) Open six (ice cold beers) and pour them into the pumpkin
4) Then put the pumpkin out on the table - all the while.....the beer is getting WARM...or less "ice cold" depending on how fast you drink and how big of lushes your friend(s) is/are.
5) Pull the spigot and fill your glass with beer from a pumpkin.....

I beg you to not get distracted from the brilliant wall decorations and think about this plan. 

Just a six pack?  

Wow, that sounds like a fun party!

If I am having a party there ar more than six people and they like to drink a lot (that is why I like them)....basically, for me......what these would be/are single serving pumpkins.  

I do not like any of my friends enough to carve them a pumpkin serving keg.  

(BTW - no need to watch the whole will just cut into your drinking time.)

I could finish half the six pack in the time it would take to make this....

Not saying this is a bad idea.  Just not very logical.


  1. I remember a "witche's brew" at school, basically a cocktail for children (mocktail?), served in a hollowed pumpkin. I think it is a waste of Jack O'Lantern.

  2. I thought this WAS for a children's party, who else would drink 6 warm pumpkin tainted slimy beers but a group of inexperienced 6 year olds?

  3. I would love to know the backstory on how this came about. How many of those Sam Adams had already been consumed??

  4. That's not's common sense. Best advice from my Dad was to drink your beer before it gets warm...

  5. Ah, naive Americans, always presuming that beer should be served cold, when everyone knows that good beer is best served at room temperature. Especially stout.

    The pumpkin keg is an unwieldy notion though. It might be alright with a pumpkin flavored beer though.

    1. Husband and I agree stout at room temperature is the best....we travel to the UK often...we understand full their "ice" phobia! :D

      Thanks that made our day!!!


  6. It may be cause to reevaluate our friendship if I see my beloved SoCo treated in such a manner.
