Halloween for Beer Lovers

We might be too old for trick or treating, but we’ll never grow out of craft beer. Read on for our favorite Halloween brews.

Milk Stout Nitro by Left Hand Brewing

The ultimate milk stout, this dark, thick brew has hints of brown sugar and vanilla cream followed by slightly bitter mocha and roasted coffee.

Punkin Ale by Dogfish Head Brewery

This fall standby packs subtle pumpkin flavor and a warm, spicy punch into every sip. With hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and brown sugar, it’s our go-to brew all season.

Popcorn Pilsner by Sun King Brewing

True to it’s name, this German-style pilsner is brewed with Indiana-grown Richle’s Select popcorn! It won the Silver Medal in the International-Style Pilsner Category at the 2011 Great American Beer Festival® and offers up balanced flavor with a dry finish.

Rocky’s Revenge by Tyranena Brewing

Named after a mysterious serpent, this brown ale is partially aged in bourbon barrels for a slightly sweet caramel malt flavor. It is as delicious as it is fitting for the holiday.
