11/17/2018

Number 12 and it’s a beer I’ve been threatening to make for a long time - a Candy Corn Ale. Names after the Trick R Treat house at Halloween Horror Nights 28 and the greatest Halloween candy of all time, Trick R Treats is blonde ale with a bit of Candy Corn flavoring to make it a classic(?) Halloween beer. Is it a classic and will it be as divisive as Candy Corn?

13 Beers for Halloween - Soul Grabber

11/14/2018
More
Beer number 9 and the only beer making a return from a prior Halloween Horror Nights year. In 2017 I made a milk chocolate coconut porter that was a far bigger hit than I expected it could be. With 13 different beers on the line I wanted to make at least one that work out, so I dusted off last year's recipe and made "Soul Grabber" again. The name comes from the Halloween Horror Nights 27 website them of a "Soul Collector" running things behind the scenes (sorta). Did lightning strike twice...

13 Beers for Halloween - Scary Ales

11/14/2018
More
Lucky number 7 - "Scary Ales". No brew project can go by without me making an amber ale. It's my favorite and I'm not ashamed to say it. The name comes right from the very last attraction announced for Halloween Horror Nights 2018, the Original Content House "Scary Tales - Deadly Ever After". Amber ales will likely be a style I'll spend my whole brewing tenure trying to perfect, and in the vein this is new, adjusted recipe for this project. Did I find the one that will keep my happily ever...

13 Beers for Halloween - Twisted Tater

11/14/2018
More
The 8th beer out of the 13 brewed for Halloween, "Twisted Tater" This was the first beer named, created, and planned for brewing when this project began. The lack of a specific and much need specialty grain kept this one from kicking off the project. It's inspired by the best food in the Halloween Horror Nights event world - Twisted Taters. It's also my first Brown Ale, a style I tend to forget I like. So do I like this one? Check out this episode "Is It Beer Yet" and find out!...

13 Beers for Halloween - Patient Zero Pale

11/14/2018
More
Beer number 6 is up next, and it's the style I haven't been able get a look on for years now. “Patient Zero Pale”, named after the original content house from Halloween Horror Nights 28, is a simple, straight forward Pale Ale. Or at least it should be. For years I've struggled with this style - most of the time I add too many specialty malts and too few hops. For this brew I take the George Costanza approach and do the opposite of what I think I should do while making this beer. Does that...

13 Beers for Halloween - Swamp Yeti

11/14/2018

It’s the 5th beer and it’s a fun one! “Swamp Yeti”, named after a scare actor from the Halloween Horror Nights Haunted House “Slaughter Sinema”. An unusual beer for an unusual character - A Coffee Blonde Ale! Made with coffee beans from Grovers Mill New Jersey (the site of the Martian invasion of 1938’s “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast by the way) “Swamp Yeti” should be a smooth, full flavored rich blonde ale.

13 Beers for Halloween - Scream Ale

10/23/2018
More
Beer number 4, this might be where the creative juices ran out. "Scream Ale" is a near duplicate or a beer I made earlier this year with 1 change - the yeast. So I count this as a new beer...technically. But that's not the worst of the creative dry spell. It's a cream ale. Guess how long it took to settle on the name for this one. Even with this not being the most thought out and toiled over idea, it's a still a full all-grain brew so it took as long to make as all the others. And in the end...

13 Beers for Halloween - Killer Grease Paint

10/22/2018

Third beer up in the 13 beer challenge gets a little interesting. It's a style I hate, and ingredient I couldn't resist. "Kill Grease Paint" is the first beer in the challenge named and inspired by a specific attraction at Halloween Horror Nights 28 - The "Killer Klowns from Outer Space" scarezone. I wanted to make a white beer as a direct nod to the clown make up. My first idea was a White Ale. But a big part of this project along with making 13 beers to learn while I'm doing it. So I...

13 Beers for Halloween - Chainsaw Splatter

10/21/2018
More
Beer number 2 in the 13 beers challenge, and my first time playing with Rye malt. "Chainsaw Splatter", named for the ever present tool of terror at Universal Orlando Resort's Halloween Horror Nights, is a red rye ale. I've always wanted to experiment with rye, and from what understand it contributes to brewing, a beer named after a chainsaw seemed appropriate. The rye is the main focus on this brew, but I did want to make it drinkable so I did put a little thought into the accompanying malts...
