Happy Halloweek! Beer and candy, anyone?
Halloween is one of those holidays that gets better with age, amiright? Reason #1 – your parents can’t take away your candy anymore. Reason #2 – pumpkin beer.
So what better way to kick off All Hallows’ Eve than with a little beer + candy tasting?
I’m definitely not one of those bearded, plaid clad, craft beer masters (apologies for the stereotyping, but ya know what I mean) so I relied on the experts at Hop City KSM to pick out a few of their favorite fall brews. Side note for the beer and wine connoisseurs – Hop City is your candy store. From growlers to building your own six pack to their giant WALL of wine – they have it all. Run, don’t walk.
After my roommates and I sampled and sipped each treat, we voted on our favorite combos. Here are the results.
Ichabod Pumpkin Ale & Candy Corn
Dogfish Head Punkin Ale & & Heath Bar Chunks
Anderson Valley Fall Hornin & Chocolate Covered Cranberries
…..and our favorite combo….
Southern Tier Pumking & Sour Gummy Worms
And just because apple things are so in right now…
Angry Orchard Hop’n Mad Apple & Caramel Crème Chews
End verdict: The beer taste great and the candy taste good, no matter the combination.
