Default HAPPY HALLOWEEN - What are your plans?

I was up late last night simmering a big pot of chili.

I moved my Anchor Steam clone to the upstairs kegerator, right next to my fresh keg of Centennial Blonde.

I moved about a case of mixed HB bottles into a cooler on ice.

We have just a few friends coming over with their kids to T&T, but the neighborhood will be crawling with kids and their thirsty Dad’s. I plan on handing out some draft HB to the Dad’s in the neighborhood (albeit in plastic cups).

What about y’all? What are your plans for the evening and is some HB in the forecast?

No HB for me....im bottling my brown ale on friday so thats as close as im going to get....ive got some Summit IPA and Summit Porter in the fridge along side a couple nice big juicy cuts of ribeye that are just waiting to be grilled when im done with work!

Probably just have some brews, eat some steak and hand out candy to the neighborhood kiddies with SWMBO.

SWMBO and I are taking the kids (4 & 2) trick or treating in the neighborhood.

After that, I want to compare the porter I brewed to a couple of commercial examples I have on hand.

SWMBO dropped a few hints this AM, so tonight I'm going for the ole EF.

Nice - I'm with you on the first part - good luck with the last part!

We're getting the grill going and I plan on having some HB when I get home. I've got some SNPA and Sam Adams at the place we're doing the get together tonight. We'll be handing out candy too. None of us have kids but for some reason, my buddy and his g/f want to give away perfectly good candy to strangers.

This gives me an excuse to have a couple good brews on a weekday.

Nothing crazy. Homebrew (as always...when do I not have a homebrew?) and a board meeting for our LLC. We're slated to get our Alcoholic Beverage Control license this week, and there's lots of work to be done.

Oh, and I'll be sure to turn off the porch light. I've got no candy, and I don't think I'd wanna go to prison for handing out homebrew to 10-year olds.

we're taking the kids out for a bit of trick or treating. Then once they are on bed the wife and I are going to put back a few pints.

Handing out candy in my "scarey" costume. Beer-wise I'll only be having one 22oz of Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpking after the kids are gone. I love Halloween and beer

We're having a get together with my sisters coming over as well as my niece and nephew. Then it will be some T&T with the kids and a sleep over with their cousins. We usually have a combo birthday party and halloween bash for me and my sis (Oct 28th and Nov. 1st). But she has the flu so we are going to keep the kids for her tonight (single mom, widowed). I'll probably be the one to stick around the house and hand out treats while everyone else is running around in the dark. Which is fine by me, I'll be hittin' the keg.
