Oktoberfest beers are flying out of taps across town, but at this time of year, a deluge of pumpkin beers is also sweeping into your favorite bars. They're not all created equal, as we learned in last year's Going Out Guide pumpkin beer taste test - some taste more like a crisp fall beer, others are reminiscent of spicy pumpkin pie. Jack Rose is getting in the Halloween spirit a little early at Night of the Living Gourd, which features 15 pumpkin ales on draft and the D.C. debut of the Fear, Flying Dog Brewery's imperial pumpkin ale. To make it extra special, bartenders will pour pints of the Fear directly out of a pumpkin, which sounds kind of awesome. There will also be prizes for the best beer-themed costumes, in case you've still got that Duffman suit in the closet from Halloween 2003.
