Halloween may be over month away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your spooky drink on. Here are 10 beers inspired by ghosts, ghouls, and things that go bump in the night.
Newcastle Werewolf - “Werewolf is a dual-character brew that pours ‘blood’ red, starting smooth and ending with a bite.”
Apparition Ale, Moon River Brewing Company – “This beer is driven by malt flavors of caramel and toast with a fruity English ale yeast character.” Bonus: Savannah’s Moon River Brewing Company is reportedly haunted.
Ghost River Black Magic – “Ghost River Black Magic has a pronounced toasted malt flavor that creates a smooth roasted flavor without the bite found in a typical stout or porter. The end result is a dark beer with great flavor and drinkability.”

If pumpkin beers aren’t your thing, perhaps a monster brew will do the trick. Newcastle Brown Ale recently announced the first nationwide release of its limited edition beer, Newcastle Werewolf.
“Unlike the mythical wolf-like creature said to roam the bleak moorland surrounding Newcastle, England, this Werewolf is real,” Charles van Es, brand director, Newcastle Brown Ale, said in a statement. “Everyone loves a good urban legend, so we’re hoping to take advantage of the werewolf story to sell more beer this fall.”
