Default Halloween Brew Suggestions

It's that time of the year again... typically I grab my standard "safe" beer Sam Adams Octoberfest, but this year I'm looking to try something new.

Any suggestions on a good Halloween brew?

p.s. I haven't been on here in ages, what's new?

Everyone seems to flock to SA's Oktoberfest. Maybe I'm a nut, but I just don't care for it.

As for new beers.... if you like pumpkin ales, those would be a good spot to start for halloween. Dogfish has one, and Southern Tiers Pumpkin King is incredible. I think it's called pumpkin king.

Dogfish Head Punkin' Ale is probably my favorite autumn beer.

Hobgoblin from Wychwood Brewery. It even has a witch on the bottle.

Hobgoblin was on my mind... never had it.

Try very hard to find Southern Tier's Imperial Pumpking, but Hobgoblin is also a great brew; tastes even more amazing and complex if you let it age a long time.

Well, I dont think anything will be ready by Holloween, but you might try an English Mild or Pumkin ale.

Isn't Hobgoblin a year round beer? I can usually find it at around without a problem. It's also a goblin of the hob variety on the front, not a witch.

Meaty, I believe Hobgoblin is out of the UK.
