Halloween Countdown Calendar with Seasonal Craft Beers

While everyone is giddy over Pumpkin Spice Latte, I’m over here wanting to wet my whistle with some Octoberfest Beer and Pumpkin Ales. Mind you, with as hot as is here in Florida, I can’t even think about cracking one open until the weather drops at least ten degrees.

So while I’m longing some cooler weather and pumpkin lagers, my craving led to the idea to create a Halloween Countdown Calendar with seasonal craft beers.

Seasonal Craft Beer Halloween Countdown

To build this eclectic seasonal beer collection, I visited my local Total Wine and purchased 31 varieties of Octoberfest (or Oktoberfest) craft beers, pumpkin ales, lagers and ciders – one for each day of October. The idea is very similar to the Adult Christmas Craft Beer Advent Calendar I’ve thrown together every holiday, like this one or this one.


Each day during October, my husband and I will open one beer to split and sample the seasonal lager. How fun is that?!

Although I am dying to pop one open now, I will have to wait until October 1.
