A Very Hoppy Halloween in NYC

A Very Hoppy Halloween in NYC

Posted on October 29, 2015 by NYCBG

Halloween landing on a weekend night is a blessing and curse. On one hand, we can go out and enjoy libations with greater abandon than on a weekday night. On the other hand… well, read the last sentence, and multiply it by everybody in this city. Things can get real weird, real fast. But that’s part of the fun, right?

To ensure that your weekend is as hoppy as it is spooky, we hand-picked five of the best craft beer-centric Halloween events to share with you. How are you planning to celebrate this year? Let us know in the comments below!

Pumpkin Beer for People Who Like Beer

Friday, October 30, 2:00 pm – 11:00 pm @ Proletariat. Full event details »

If the name of the event doesn’t make it clear, the good folks at Proletariat go on: “Pumpkin treats are fucking annoying.”

Proletariat has put together an impressive tap list of pumpkin beers that focus less on the spice, and more on the beer. The featured draft list includes offerings from Almanac, Avery, Central Waters, Finback, Jolly Pumpkin, and Brasserie à Vapeur Potironne.

Bonus: they win for best event artwork. Seriously.

Halloween at Alewife

Saturday, October 31, 11:00 am – late @ Alewife. Full event details »

Head to Alewife for family fun during the day, with kid specials until 6pm and a family costume contest. Once the sun goes down, there are specials for the adults, including discounts for patrons who are dressed up, special cocktails, and prizes for costumes.

Barcade New York Halloween Party

Saturday, October 31, 12:00 pm – late @ Barcade New York. Full event details »

Barcade New York is hosting a Halloween party that includes a costume contest (with beer-money as the prize) and a solid tap list. If you’re in Chelsea looking to get hoppy while you’re getting weird on Halloween, this is your place.

Barcade Brooklyn Halloween Party

Saturday, October 31, 12:00 pm – late @ Barcade Brooklyn. Full event details »

Pretty much the same as the Barcade Chelsea Halloween party, but in Brooklyn and with a different tap list. Barcade is always a fun place to knock a few back, and Halloween night should be even better!

Happy Halloween at Finback Brewery

If you’re in Queens, you can kick off Halloween at Finback Brewery. The event promises to remain kid friendly from 1:00 – 3:00 pm with candy, a costume contest, and animal spirit petting zoo (spirit? Not exactly sure what that is but sounds like fun). The adult fun goes from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. There will be a costume contest, with prizes!

Hoppy Halloween at The Jeffrey

Saturday, October 31, 6:00 pm – late @ The Jeffrey Craft Beer & Bites. Full event details »

Dead Celebrity Party at One Mile House

Saturday, October 31, 8:00 pm – late @ One Mile House. Full event details »
