It’s HALLOWEEN! Time for fun and time for screams, or in the very least, a throat-soak of celebratory suds. Don’t know which beer best complements doing the monster mash? DGO’s got your witchy, werewolvian, horrifying hooch needs covered. Here’s some brews (all available at Star Liquors) to swig on Halloween:
Flesh and Blood IPADogfish Head’s Flesh and Blood IPA sits at 7.5 percent ABV and is a mischievous brew concocted with lemon flesh and blood orange. It’s tart, slightly sweet, and has a light hop finish. Bonus: It pours a dark amber that’ll look macabre in a goblet.
Pump Action Imperial Pumpkin AleBroomfield’s 4 Noses Brewing won gold medals at both the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) and the World Beer Cup in 2016 for this pumpkin ale. The nutmeg, brown-sugary, 7.7-percent-ABV brew has over 10 pounds of pumpkin per barrel. Autumn-freakin-licious.
White RascalCoriander and Curaçao orange peel give this 5.6-percent-ABV Belgian White Ale a classyass, crisp kick. Avery Brewing’s White Rascal, a 2012 silver medal-winner at GABF, pours a light gold and its barley notes add a complexity to this devilish all-night sipper.
Dawn of the RedGet zombified with Ninkasi Brewing’s Dawn of the Red. This malty red IPA is hella hoppy and has a deep caramel background. Smooth and a little bit fruity, at 7 percent ABV it perfectly complements you screaming, “WHY ARE YOU GOING IN THE BASEMENT?” at the TV during your horror movie marathon.
