Take adult trick-or-treating up a notch and pair all of your Halloween candy with craft beer! Here is the Sun King Crew's guide on what delicious Halloween candy treats pair with your favorite Sun King beers.
Sour, Sweet, or Gummy Candies:
Sour Patch Kids = Osiris Pale Ale. The citrus from the hops in the beer bring out the fruity side of the sour candy. Pale ales not your thing, try Crushin' Pils collaboration with St. Joseph Brewery
Starburst = We fished out our top 3 Starburst flavors (Orange, Cherry, Strawberry) and paired them with Double 00 Session IPA collaboration with Revolution Brewing or Velour Soccer Mom
Chewy Spree = Armada of Kazoos or Velour Soccer Mom (Leave the grape one for another time!)
Smarties = Osiris Pale Ale
Skittles = We will take you through half of the rainbow, so hang on tight! Grape = Velour Soccer Mom | Orange = Brettfest | Red = Sympathy for the Devil
SweetTarts = We singled out the Blue Raspberry / Grape SweetTarts and partnered them up with Velour Soccer Mom, that is aged in oak barrels with fresh
raspberries and hibiscus
Hot Tamales = The cinnamon of the Hot Tamales takes GABF Two-Time Silver Medal Winner Batch 666: Sympathy for the Devil to the Upside Down
Candy Corn = Believe it or not, they still make this candy for those of us that want to feel nostalgic from our youth! Hands down. Candy Corn pairs well with Sunlight Cream Ale or Java Mac
Caramel Apple Suckers = Pucker up! Grab something from one of our sour ales. Armada of Kazoo or Velour Soccer Mom will do the trick. Scared of sours? Try a easy to drink Sunlight Cream Ale
Whoppers = Java Mac
M&Ms (plain) = These melt in your mouth candies paired with SO many different beers it was hard to pick just one. Wee Mac, Java Mac, Velour Soccer Mom, and Sympathy for the Devil
Hersey Chocolate Bar = When the Lights Go Out or Sympathy for the Devil
Twix = The buttery biscuit inside of the Twix along with the caramel layer pairs beautifully with Wee Mac Scottish-Style Ale
Almond Joy = Has nuts! And pairs well with Sunlight Cream Ale, Java Mac, and Sympathy for the Devil
Snickers = We went for a simple to extreme pairings with this favorite! Pachanaga, Velour Soccer Mom, and Sympathy for the Devil...your taste buds will thank you
Tootsie Rolls = This classic is a perfect match for When the Lights Go Out.
Butterfinger = Keep your hands off my Butterfinger and hand me a Velour Soccer Mom. Think peanut butter and jelly!
Reese's Cup = Sympathy for the Devil
