The bottle art was a la carnival and the text from the back of the bottle was excellent.
Arise & take possession of this bewitching offering of the season. Crafted to lure your spirit’s deepest rapture. Conjured to exercise the grim horrors of the armies of soulless drafts everywhere. ABV 6.66%
Occasionally the beer and wine store near our places has good beers on sale when the season’s styles change. About a week ago Garland and I picked up a 4 pack of Coney Island Freaktoberfest by Shmaltz Brewing Company .
It is a novelty beer, to be sure, but still pretty tasty. While meant as a halloween beer with 6 malts (Canadian 2 Row, Munich, Rye, Wheat, Dark Crystal and Caramunich 40), 6 varieties of hops (Warrior, Centennial, Crystal, Fuggle, Northern Brewer and Willamette) and an ABV of 6.66% it makes a good choice for Valentines Day as well because of it’s blood red hue.
If looking for a special touch for your date night and perhaps to save a few bucks, try to hunt down a bottle of this hoppy lager. If you can’t find it this year, plan a trip to Coney Island for the Freaktoberfest Festival and enjoy it with a big helping live music, side show freaks, and you favorite fiends.
