    I think you covered all of the pumpkin beers I know of (and many I don't), but my favorite pun/beer name for a fall beer, even though I think the beer was lousy, is Clown Shoes Genghis Pecan

    I think 'Fat Jack' is a really good short simple name for a pumpkin beer.

    I called one of my homebrew pumpkin ales that came out horrible "Blumkin"... A little immature I suppose, but man it was bad lol. I've since made a drastically improved version but still have no name for it at the moment. Seems like most the good/creative uses of the word "pumpkin" have all been just about used up.

    Warlock from Southern Tier is a great name for a pretty solid beer, and not too heavy handed on spices in my humble opinion.
