Beer + Candy!

No, it’s not the two-decades-too-late sequel to Marcy Playground’s once popular song, Sex and Candy. Neither is it a Weird Al parody tune, though it could work! Halloween is less than a week away, and as you are all putting the finishing touches on your costumes, here at the shop we’re brainstorming ways to make Halloween as fun for grown-ups as it is for kids. How are you going to enjoy your stash of candy without a complementary beverage? Let’s keep it short and sweet: the beer department has the optimal choices to suit your needs!
