Friday, October 31, Halloween
» Beware of things that stalk the night. Unless we’re talking about Night Stalker Pumpkin Cream Stout from Arbor Brewing. A full-bodied dark brew made with lactose and spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove is something you should totally embrace. It’s on tap at the brewpub at 114 E. Washington St. just in time to warm up your Halloween.
» Pop in to Witch’s Hat Brewing, 22235 Pontiac Trail, South Lyon, wearing your Halloween costume and enjoy happy hour prices all day. Bring the kiddies with you (before 9 p.m.), and if they’re in costume, too, they’ll get a free root beer and popcorn – and maybe even a small goodie bag. Then go back to the taproom November 1 in costume and enter the costume contest for a chance to win a lifetime Mug Club membership. The taproom opens at noon both days.
» At the Chelsea Alehouse, 420 N. Main St., Chelsea, the Halloween party begins at 7 p.m. and goes to midnight. Music, a costume contest, and the release of a pumpkin ale are all on tap. No cover.
