Candy & Craft Beer Pairings
Pairings for a Happier, Hoppier Halloween!
1) Candy Corn
Candy corn; a Halloween staple consisting of only sugar. You either love it, or you hate it. Either way try it with a crisp lager to bring out its caramel flavor... it might change your mind!
The bitterness of the hops in a fruity IPA balances the overwhelming sweetness of the Skittles, yet the fruity notes of the beer allow you to fully taste the rainbow!
If you're going to chow down on a Snickers, we recommend a brown ale! They're malty and nutty and compliment all that nougat to perfection.
4) Reese's Peanut Butter Cups
What makes chocolate even better? You guessed it.. more chocolate. Try a porter the next time you pick up a Reese's. You won't regret it.
5) Hershey's Chocolate Bar
If you're looking to compliment a Hershey's bar the obvious pairing would be a chocolate stout for that chocolate on chocolate action! if you're looking for a contrast on the other hand, try a bitter IPA to cleanse the palate and wash the cocoa down.
Cheers and Hoppy Halloween!
