7 Craft Beers as Mouthwatering as Halloween Candy

7 Craft Beers as Mouthwatering as Halloween Candy

Okay, so we’re all grown up now, and as we age, the holidays become more and more about the children. Christmas. Easter. Thanksgiving. It’s all about teaching them tradition, making them smile and believe in something larger than themselves. It’s about family, and about spending time together.

Thank goodness for Halloween. On the surface, this renegade holiday also seems to be for the kids, but I’ll tell you, costume parties only get better with age, and it’s the only day of the year when kids provide for their parents — those cute little ballerinas and spooky ghosts bringing home a week’s worth of loot. Is there a better tradition than “inspecting” the candy after the kids have gone to bed? You know, for razor blades and stuff.

Seriously, though, one of my favorite parts of Halloween is receiving trick-or-treaters. It’s fun to see all the different costumes come to the door. And each year, we cook up something in a crock pot and hang out, drink some beers, eat some candy. Which got me thinking for this year — what if we drank beers that tasted like candy?

So I put together a list for my friends, beers we could find at the local bottle shop. Some fall under the category of rich and sweet like candy; the type you’d probably have just one of before moving on to something else. The others carry strong, smooth, savory flavor profiles, like chocolate cake, that satisfy the sweet tooth while maintaining drinkability. Depending on your palate, most might fall somewhere in between.

Halloween, to many, is more important than the other big fall and winter holidays. As such, it’s crucial that your Halloween, All Hallows’ Eve, All Saints’ Eve, or Dia de los Muertos (November 1 to 2) promotions go off without a hitch. There’s nothing scarier than putting time, labor, money and other resources into an event, only to open to your doors to a most terrifying vision: nobody in line.

To help you avoid such a horror, we present you with the following inspiring Halloween promotions. Cheers!

Haunted Homecoming & Forbidden Ball

When it comes to parties, Las Vegas nightclubs tend to go huge. Light located inside the Mandalay Bay will be celebrating Halloween for four days, starting on October 26 with Haunted Homecoming. DJ Mustard will provide the soundtrack, and he’ll do so on October 28 as well. J. Cole will be the host on October 29, and Disclosure will perform a special DJ set on Halloween itself. Of course, no promotion is complete without a catchy themed hashtag, and Light has certainly come up with a great one for Halloween: #Lightmare.
