“Every year around this time we gather at the brewery to do some adult-style trick-or-treating,” the brewery reports. “Except our treats aren’t candy, our treats are candy-inspired beers, dreamt up by our brewers and available for one very spooky night.”
Bundle and beer sales begin at 12 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24th. All purchases must be picked up Saturday, between the hours of 12-8 p.m. It is highly recommended that you place your order online (link to follow) at noon on Saturday before driving out to the brewery in case of a sellout.
This year the brewery is creating an Adult Trick or Treating Sampler Bundle, perfect for sharing between four friends. Each bundle will include a 16-oz can of each of this year’s eight candy beers. In addition, you’ll get four different themed, limited sampler glasses all packaged in a reusable Swamp Head tote bag. Quantities are limited, bundle price is $50 and includes a 16 oz can of all 8 candy beers, four 6-oz sampler glasses, and a themed, reusable tote bag.
According to Swamp Head Brewery Officer Manager Michele Pate, the 8-pack sampler bundle of candy flavored beers will be available to order online right at Noon on Oct. 23 and with only 250 available, she said they expect for the treats to sell out very quickly.
“Nothing is secure until you checkout,” she said about the online order process. So once the bundle is in your shopping cart, Pate says you need to checkout and set up a pickup time to secure your order.
