Its Costume Party Season; Whatcha Drinkin’?

Its that time of year again.  Time to dress up as your favorite ghoul or goblin and hit the Halloween parties.  I have never really gotten into the whole dress up thing.  Oh, we send the kids out and hand out candy on the day, etc, but Kathy and I have never been into going out to Costume Parties.  That said, I know a lot of people love them, and go all out when it comes time for dress up.

How about you?  Have you gone, or are you planning on going to any outrageous costume parties this year?  Maybe this weekend?  What is the wackiest costume you have ever put together for such an occasion?  And most of all, What will you be drinking?  I think that these parties have long been the domain of the BMC crowd, but perhaps you have been to others that were serving something a bit craftier?

I know I will not be going to any costume soirees, but I will be drinking something this weekend.  I have several dark beers I have recently purchased.  I have a Southern Tier Iniquity, a Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout, a Nimkasi Oatis (their version of an oatmeal stout), and a couple others I have put some age on too.  I recently took a look into my beer bunker, which has been pretty lonely since I got on this weight loss kick, and Low and Behold, I have a lot of great stuff out there.  So I will be getting into mt stash somehow.

How ’bout you?  What will you be drinking?  Let us know in the comments.  And if you go to a party and drink, make sure you have a ride home, we want all you back next week.  Have fun.

    It’s that time of year when every beer I drink gets darker and darker. It’s looking like imperial stouts for me. Plus, I have to start drinking some barley wines. They can’t age forever.

      I drink like you. My STL buddy brought over a Schlafly Raspberry Coffee Stout last weekend. My wife was pissed we got all snookered and opened it. Being up for 42 straight hours does that to a man.

        Well you want to make sure when you do sleep it is for a long time and a deep sleep. What better way then to knock back a couple Imperial Stouts and then sleep them off! 🙂

      I had a couple over lunch. Hale’s Russian Imperial Stout to be exact. They were roasty and nutty, and felt like I was drinking pudding, nice thick mouthfeel. Great stuff if you can find it. I too am leaning much more to the dark side these days.

    We’re not quite at the stout stage yet here in MD–its a bit warmer than in ID. But let me see, what will it be…Lagunitas’ Hop Stoopid; Unibroue’s La Fin Dumonde; New Berlin’s: 1544 Enlightened Black Ale, Hoptober, or Ranger; Long Trail’s Double IPA; Smutty Nose’s Old Brown Dog Ale; DFH’s Indian Brown Ale; Yard’s Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale; or Fuller’s ESB…choices, choices, choices.

      Sounds like the drinking world is your Oyster. Perhaps you have an oyster stout you could throw into the mix too?

    Oh yeah, and I wanna be that guy in the first photo!

      Yes, but you’d be facing the other way… 🙂

    I think I’ve been the Macho Man for the past few years, I’ve retired the costume in honor of his death. This year I doubt I dress up except for a race which I’ll just run in a speedo and go as Don’s Pool Boy, Frederick.

      Hmmm, I wonder, would you stockpile 3Fs for the Zombie Apocalypse?

    What would Freud say about that opening photo? I’d say gimme a Big Brown Ale!

      He’d probably say “I told you so!”

      He’d probably say “sweet costume. Now where’s the coke?!!!”
