Halloween candy isn’t just for kids! Try some of our suggested candy pairings with your favorite pint of Cape Cod Beer.
With Halloween just around the corner, theres no better way to celebrate than pair our favorite candy with our favorite beer! From the Nox Imperial Stout to our beloved Beach Blonde we’ve got you covered on which candy you can enjoy with your brew.
Cape Cod Blonde & Starbursts
Starting off light! The fruity punch of a Starburst candy is the perfect match for the light body and refreshing chill of our Cape Cod Blonde! This pairing is a no brainer.
Cape Cod Pilsener & Twizzlers
With a more mild fruity taste, a Twizzler matches well with our Bohemian Pilsener. The light sweetness of the Twizzler does not drown out the cool kick of the clean lager. A refreshing treat after a long day!
Cape Cod Harvest & Whoppers
As a german ale, the Harvest holds a smooth malt body. The sweet chocolate wrapping of the Whopper’s malt makes it a great companion of the malt in the Harvest. With a mix of six malts to make up the brew, why not add a chocolate covered malt as a snack on the side!
Cape Cod Red & Milk Duds
The sweet and chewy caramel filling of the candy really bring out the the caramel and toffee malt notes of the Red. Not to mention the smooth texture of the Milk Duds create a perfect balance with the mellow hops in the brew as well. Kick your feet up with a box of Milk Duds & a pint of Red!
Pumpkin Coffee Dunkel & Kit-Kats
The crunch of biting into a chocolate-covered wafer is the perfect texture to contrast the smooth creamy sip of the Pumpkin Coffee Dunkel. And when it comes to taste, the sugary milk-chocolate is a perfect compliment to the pumpkin, cinnamon & nutmeg flavors of the bavarian dark beer.
Narrow Lands & Sour Patch Kids
If you’re looking for a favor blast experience look no further! The sour-sweet-then gone reputation of the Sour Patch Kid matches up with the strong hoppy citrus kick of our Narrow Lands New England style IPA. These two will be fighting for the attention of your taste buds in the best way possible.
Cape Cod Porter & M&Ms
This one is for the chocolate lovers! The crisp shell of the M&M is a pleasing contrast from the smooth malty sip of a porter. And the creamy chocolate filing of the candy is an indulgent aide of the chocolaty malts in the dessert beer. In both texture and taste these two were made for each other.
Nox Atra & Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
The full-bodied blend of peanut butter and chocolate in a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup are a great match for the strong body of the brew. More specifically, the creamy peanut butter and its sweet chocolate coating work with the imperial stouts’s velvet smooth feel and sweet aftertaste of flavor.
