Every year, we have our annual pumpkin carving to raise money for a local charity, usually the last weekend of October, before Halloween night. For $13, you get a pumpkin, a carving kit and a free pint of Guinness, Smithwicks or Black & Tan. Blackfriar matches $10 for every pumpkin sold.

Every year, Dennis from local Franconia Brewing brings a 200 year old wooden cask (brought from Germany) of their freshly brewed Oktoberfest. We get special edition ceramic steins with our logo and the first “taste” of the Oktoberfest beer along with German food specials and a stein-holding competition.
