Best Beers for Halloween

Whether you are searching for a festive bottle, or a certain fall brew, there are plenty of choices this Halloween!

Halloween is right around the corner, which means you are anxiously awaiting all of the candy, and fun costumes. We have made a list of our top beers to enjoy this Halloween, from pumpkin flavored options, to refreshing ales.

Elysian Brewery – Night Owl

Night Owl ale is brewed with not only pumpkin but also pumpkin seeds. It is spiced with nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. It has a good balance, and tastes like Autumn in a bottle!

Stone Brewing – Fear.Movie.Lions

With increasing popularity of New England-Style IPAs the brewers at Stone Brewing created Fear.Movie.Lions with an approach that would deliver an incredibly hoppy and aromatic flavor while keeping the beer very balanced, and they also upped the alcohol unnoticeably – nailing this astounding one-of-a-kind creation that is sure to creep up on you.

Southern Tier – Warlock Imperial Stout

Previously mentioned in our Beers to Ease Into Fall With post last week, the Warlock Imperial Stout easily performs double duty. A dark and mysterious beer, with a large roasted malt character, a spiced pumpkin aroma, and just the right amount of carbonation. It has a smooth and velvety finish, with a hint of coffee. Warlock is brewed to enchant your palate on its own & also to counterpoint Southern Tiers Imperial Ale, Pumking. We recommend it with some spicy BBQ!

Catawba Brewing – White Zombie

Although named as a Halloween seasonal, Zombie’s refreshing taste makes it a year-round staple. Additions of coriander and orange peel give it a fruity and spicy character, while the hops are subtle and lightly detected. This is perfect year-round, and even better on Halloween.

Wicked Weed Brewing – Pompoen

Whether you are searching for a festive bottle or a certain fall brew, there are plenty of choices this Halloween! Many of these beers are only available seasonally, so stock up before they are gone!
