?Pairing Halloween Candy With New York State Craft Beer

?Pairing Halloween Candy With New York State Craft Beer

Halloween is my favorite time of year because, what is better than having the excuse to eat all the candy you want? Well, I think I know one thing: eating all the Halloween candy you want while drinking some of your favorite beers! Here is a list of my favorite Halloween candies paired with some great New York State craft beers:

Candy Corn with Saratoga Lager – This German-style lager has a refreshing sweetness that would bring out the nice, subtle caramel flavors in the candy.

Gummy Bears with Ommegang Witte – This Belgian-style Witbier has hints of orange and spice, which would complement the fruity, sugary flavors in the gummies.  

Hot Tamales with Ithaca Flower Power – This tropical IPA has punch of hop bitterness that would accentuate the heat from the candies.

Hershey Chocolate with Good Nature Great Chocolate Wreck – This Imperial Stout is brewed with cocoa nibs and cocoa powder and would complement the chocolate nicely.

Skittles with Druthers The Dare Gose – This Gose has a citrusy tartness, which would contrast with the sweetness of the candy to make the perfect harmony.
