|Free Pint Glasses - my favorite is Ska Breweries Pin Stripe|
So on Oct. 29th for the Eddyline takeover, we had to dressed as Germans in celebration of Oktoberfest. Don't you like his Lordships hat?? He could barely fit it on his head. However, no one there was dressed up, causing us to feel foolish and flee to the Front Range BBQ Halloween Party were we had a great dinner, listened to live music, and saw some brilliant costumes. I wish this was my real hair.
Since beer is important to us and so is Halloween, I wanted to serve something yummy but that also had a spooky label at my Halloween parties. Here are four we tried that did not break the bank.
The two on the right are Day of the Dead Beers - From Mexico. They were pretty palatable, have great labels and were fairly easy on the budget. The two on the left are pumpkin beers. While I am not crazy about pumpkin beer, I prefer Magic Hats Wilhelm Scream to the Shipyard Pumpkin Head. In fact, I dislike the Pumpkin Head so much that it wins my crappy beer award. I apologize if you like it. Please come on over and drink it. Otherwise, I need to find a recipe in which it can be utilized. Other great beers we served I cannot show you because they were imbibed long ago. Those were the Arrogant Bastard Ale and the Arrogant Bastard Black IPA. The latter being the best beer to pass my lips this year, with the exception of Pliny the Elder. Please give me your recommendations for your favorite spooky brews. And please try some Colorado beers - they are really turning out some good stuff.
