Pennies, Pints, Pittsburgh posted an article on what craft beers to pair with the Halloween candy you liberate from your kids' bags. Some are good, and some are a little crazy, like a sour beer with Sour Patch Kids, but then I think just eating Sour Patch Kids is a little nutso. Ick.
But I do like the stout and chocolate suggestions. A darker beer and chocolate go really well together. Have you ever had a stout with chocolate cake? It's to die for!
Anyway, here's the link to the article.
