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!

2) Skittles
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!

3) Snickers
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!
