Four Sexy Craft Beer Inspired Halloween Costumes

Sexy female Halloween costumes have been blown out of proportion in recent years. I remember talking to friends six or seven Halloweens ago at a bar on Hollywood Boulevard when the slutty (insert practically anything here) costume was becoming popular and I was saying that there was a whole world of possibilities for these costumes. I was suggesting a Slutty SCUBA Diver, a Sexy Carburetor, a Slutty FDR, and so on. Now these ideas are practically real. A slutty Bert and Ernie? A sexy Yoda? A smokin’ hot Optimus Prime?! Nice try, but I think we can raise the ridiculous meter a few more bars. Here at ACB, we joined the bandwagon and made some outfits that will meet your sexy craft beer costume needs.

I love ya Fred Meyer, but seriously, even you can’t keep up with this kind of production. So, the original impetus for my journey to Bend was to investigate and complete the package that is my new Drink Tanks growler-keg that’s presently blowing my mind and convincing me to change how I buy beer.

Academics On Beer!

There are beer facts that we know…And there are beer facts that we know we don’t know. But there are also beer facts that didn’t even cross our minds ….at least, not until now. And a lot of what we’ve recently learned came from Mark Patterson and Nancy Hoalst-Pullen, who go as The Beer Doctors on Facebook and Twitter, and are geographers from Kennesaw State University in Georgia in real life.
