Frightening Fermentations for Fall
Halloween has become a month-long extravaganza and participation is not optional. At the very least, you might have to wear a costume to work. Even if you don’t have kids, there’s that not-so-subtle pressure to hang a creepy spider web by the front door. Failure to decorate sets you apart as the neighborhood grouch. To help get into the Halloween spirit, indulge your inner trick-or-treater with a curated selection of grown-up goodies.
Named after a legend involving a group of Canadian lumberjacks who made a pact with the devil, this Belgian-style ale has a robust maltiness and spiciness, counterbalanced by an assertive hop finish. You could say Maudite is ‘devilishly’ satisfying.
Don’t be afraid of the dark. Black is a Belgian-style stout brewed with chocolate malt and a generous portion of dark, caramelized candi sugar. It is best enjoyed while sinking your teeth into some chocolate Halloween treats.
Stone Ghost Hammer IPA
A fermenting beer never slumbers. This IPA is brewed to honor Stone’s overnight brewing team, who brew throughout the long, dark hours of the night, often to the eerie sound of the brewery creaking and groaning as its pipes contract and expand.
Great Lakes Nosferatu
Rich, roasted malt flavors lurk beneath the stunning hop bite of this Imperial red ale’s bitter teeth.
Evil Genius Trick or Treat
In keeping with the spirit of the season, Evil Genius adds chocolate to this porter, post-fermentation, making it a rich and decadent seasonal delight, necessary to survive the chilly and ever-lengthening autumn nights.
Heavy Seas The Great’er Pumpkin
With notes of brown sugar and pumpkin, this bourbon barrel-aged pumpkin beer will enchant you at first sip.
Pumpkinhead rides again! Creep into fall with this seasonal favorite. Try it with a shot of spiced rum or in a pint glass rimmed with sugar and cinnamon.
