Craft Beer and Halloween Candy Pairings

Halloween candy and craft beer

Everyone loves Halloween - kids and adults alike can dress up and party for no particular reason, candy is readily available for those who ask, and parents can dig into their child's plentiful stash as soon as they slip into a sugar induced coma. Beer, like wine, can be paired with certain food items to enhance the overall flavor experience, and Halloween is no exception to the rule.

Asheville Beer Week: Beer Blogger Choice Events Cont’d

asheville beer week

Last year was my first Asheville Beer Week experience, and this year the only thing that would excite me more than the 9-day 2015 Asheville Beer Week (May 22-30) would be a 31-day Asheville Beer Month!

Asheville Beer Week 2014: Flip Cup

Asheville Beer Week: Flip Cup

Another oldie but goodie, the classic Flip Cup is a game that people (even tipsy) take seriously. Don't take my word for it - on my internet travels I found a website dedicated to the Major League Flip Cup, and the World Series Flip Cup Event. Perhaps beer week isn't an official drinking game event, but it is still a good period of time to practice for your team - maybe you can take the gold in the 2014 World Series Flip Cup Event (time and date to be announced).
