Enjoy some beer with your candy (pairing tips)

Just because you enjoy beer doesn't mean you can’t also enjoy candy -- in fact, candy and beer pairs perfectly. We asked around the brewery for everyone’s favorite candy and beer pairings and here’s what we’re enjoying this Halloween season.

  • Kalamazoo Stout and Black Licorice
  • Best Brown and Peanut M&Ms
  • Oarsman and Snickers
  • Roundhouse and dark chocolate (70% cacao is best, but find one that’s at least 60% and no more than 80%)
  • Roundhouse and Sour Patch Kids
  • Starbursts and Oarsman
  • Third Coast Old Ale and chocolate covered cherries
  • Amber Ale and Milk Duds
  • Arabicadabra and peanut butter cups

Check out more pairing suggestions from last year, including Two Hearted with Sour Gummy Worms and Expedition Stout with a Take 5.
