Whether you’re hosting a movie marathon, taking kids trick-or-treating, or just having a solo pet-costume party, a great beer is never a bad idea.

We’re sharing five brews perfect for every type of Halloween and Day of the Dead celebration.

Paperback Brewing – Sour Peaks

What happens when two guys with backgrounds in advertising start a brewery? A collection of stunning beers with fantastic can design. Paperback Brewing has plenty of cans perfect for Halloween, but we’re partial to this Twin Peaks inspired design. The Raspberry Lemonade Sour Ale isn’t the most traditional October flavor, but we’re here for the can.

Freetail Brewing Company – OktoberFiesta

This refreshing seasonal brew from San Antonio’s Freetail brewing is an October favorite. The Märzen style beer has a rich malt flavor with a clean, bright finish and a 5.8% abv. We love that the can art plays homage to both German Oktoberfest and Mexico’s Day of the Dead.

Great Divide – Pumpkin Ale

The silhouette of a red-eyed stallion ridden by a headless horseman makes this rich pumpkin ale the perfect match for any horror marathon. The 6.5% ABV toasted brown ale has notes of brown sugar, spices, and warming pumpkin balanced with a rich malted backbone.

Flying Dog Brewery – Kujo Cold Press Coffee Porter

Not a can, but Flying Dog’s fall Kujo is perfect for enjoying with candy stolen from you kids’ trick-or-treat basket. The smooth and velvety beer has a cocoa finish with nutty, roasted malt steeped in chocolate-forward coffee notes. The line is made from black chocolate, roasted barley perle and Vigilante Coffee’s La Caturrita beans.
