Jolly Pumpkin Pizzeria and Brewery

Average Reviews


Many great names came forth that afternoon, but as the weeks passed, and spring finally sprung, the name that always made us smile was Jolly Pumpkin. It encompassed everything we wanted to express about our brewery. Fun and quirky, all that needed adding were the last two words; “Artisan Ales”, the description of the brewery’s products and mission; the creation of fantastic beers of truly outstanding artisan quality. Maintaining traditional small scale production, keeping beer a beverage of both outstanding complexity and simplicity, this would be our laudable goal. Complexity of flavor, simplicity of ingredient and process. This duality was perfectly balanced in the name. Simple and complex. Complex yet simple.

To our delight with our wonderful new found name we were able to combine some very fun and exciting images:

  • Everyone’s favorite holiday; Halloween (Who doesn’t enjoy the grinning Jack O’ Lantern?)
  • Everyone’s favorite Halloween costume; the pirate!
  • Some of my favorite locations; the tropics!
  • And my two nicknames: Brewmaster Spooky, and Captain Ron
  • And hence was born the strange name by the brewer with the dedication to rustic country beers!

With much aloha from my family to yours,

Captain Spooky Ron J
