Today is my turn to contribute to the fabulous feature, the brain child of Brittany at The Book Addict’s Guide, where myself, Brittany, Estelle at Rather Be Reading and Maggie at Just a Couple More Pages are paring books and beer. Pretty perfect for a bunch of beer and book lovers if you ask me.
Today, my turn for Pub Date was in my head as soon as categories were given. Well the beer anyway. I new immediately what I would going to showcase because it is a favorite of mine and you really can only get one of the beers around Halloween. As for the book, that is a recent development,
There is nothing I like more than mixing Shipyard Pumpkinhead and Redd’s Apple Ale and making it Apple Pie in a glass by adding a cinnamon sugar rim. I learned this combination at a bar once and have been in love with it ever since. Personally I like doing the rim at home more then having it at a bar as I have mastered a way to make it not so messy (yes I’m patting myself on the back). But where ever you have it this combination is delicious. My aunt told me that she recently had Sam Adams Octoberfest mixed with a hard cider and the place she was at called in a Adam’s Apple which I thought was clever. Either way, this is a win in my book. And what says Halloween more than pumpkin? And would you look at that bottle?? Other beers: Shocktop Pumpkin Wheat, Shocktop Honey Crisp Apple Wheat, Jack-O Traveler Shandy, Redd’s Wicked Apple
Horrorstör by Grady Hendrix. This book has been popping up all over the place and I must admit the cover intrigued me. I had no idea what it was about, but a book that looks like an IKEA catalog mixed with Horror in the title and scary pictures on the wall? I was definitely interested. I thought about buying it, but hadn’t gotten around to it. Well this past weekend I took part in the Dewey Read-a-thon challenge (which I epically failed at in my eyes!) and I actually won a copy. I’m really excited to see what this one is about and how weird and creepy it can get.
And there you have my Pub Date. I will be hosting this lovely feature every few weeks and would love for you to stop by and share a pint with me…or at least tell me what you are currently enjoying. Make sure you follow along with Brittany, Estelle and Maggie too. You never know when you will find your new favorite beer.
