Pumpkin beer // fright night

Happy Halloween! Tonight I'll be drinking pumpkin beer, trying not to finish the trick or treaters' candy before they get here(!), eating "worms" in "blood" sauce (ok then... spaghetti) and watching scary movies. Picking a film is already quite daunting. Should I be traditional and go with Hocus Pocus? Because you can't go wrong with Hocus Pocus on Halloween! Or maybe The Nightmare Before Christmas because I do love a Tim Burton film! But then another part of me craves gore and gratuitous violence. The Saw films are tempting. But then I am nostalgic for films I haven't seen in years like I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (bloodshed in the Bahamas with Jack Black hilarious as a stoner!), the Scream films, or Sorority Row (you will never look at a glass bottle without clutching your throat ever again!).

Does the pumpkin beer really contain pumpkin? I have no idea. It may contain traces of pumpkin spice. It may not. It may all just be a massive gimmick where the beer company has plastered a "fun" label on the bottle just because its Halloween. The proof will be in the tasting. Well, someone's got to do it... ;)

Work even got into the spirit of things with a pumpkin:

Yes, that's a Lego pumpkin you're looking at!
Hope you have a lovely Halloween! x
