The menu will feature candy of all types, including everyone’s favorite Halloween fun-sized chocolates. Bluebird's Four Grain Bourbon, a classic corn, rye, and barley bourbon, can be paired with your choice of Hershey Kisses or a Snickers bar. Their classic Vodka will pair with Junior Mints. Philadelphia's Brewing Co.'s Kenzinger, a golden beer that combines pilsner malts with American noble hops, pairs with M&Ms, and the Twix will pair with the Walt Wit, a white ale with a slight hint of spice and citrus. 

But if you want something a little heartier with your alcohol, Oreos will pair with the Joe Coffee Porter, which is brewed with Passero’s coffee and chocolate malt.

Want something a bit sweeter and a little more sugary? Bluebird Distillery pairs its Rye Whiskey, a classic rye, with Twizzlers, while its Juniperus Gin balances its flavors of juniper, cucumber and citrus with a dash of Sour Patch Kids.

Even though you only ate the more generic Halloween candies because they were free, it's just not Halloween without it. Pair the classic caramel creams with the Bluebird's American Wheat Whiskey, which features notes of vanilla, dark fruit and butterscotch. Candy corn pairs with Philadelphia Brewing Co.’s Kenz O’Lantern, a twist on a dark ale that tastes “just like liquid pumpkin pie.”

"Beer, Booze, and Boos" will be held on Monday, Oct. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m, at the Peacock Room, 2440 Frankford Ave.
