Candy and beer pairings for Halloween 2019 sinead cummings/PhillyVoice

If you're wondering what beer to pair with your favorite Halloween candy, check out this guide. For example, Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme goes well with Yards Brewing Co.'s Philadelphia Pale Ale.

If you're handing out Halloween candy this year, make sure to save some for yourself. 

After the trick-or-treaters have gone, it's your time to indulge in something from the candy stash, and because you're an adult, go ahead and pop open a cold beer from the fridge, too.
