As the popularity of craft beer is spreading into the mainstream, the public is becoming more willing to explore novel flavors, as well as unusual pairings—including candy and beer.
Brian Bowden, the Vice President of Beer at 'BevMo!' describes that: "Beer has become much more integral to meals. People want to know what style of beer will enhance a dish or compliment a dessert."
Knowing that many people will be stocking up on trick-or-treat candy for Halloween, Bowden put together a guide for which candy and beer pairings are the best. He notes that lagers go best with a classic like candy corn, while an amber ale's flavors are best complemented by a candy bar like Twix.
