A hat trick of Halloween events in and near New Albany.

Am I going to have to leave the country to catch a break in the schedule? Here are three more worthwhile beer events to begin the coming week. What you choose to do for the weekend's up to you.

Culinary Costume of American Artisan Ales: A Beer & Food Pairing

Young Turks Joshua Lehman and Andrew McCabe (respectively, Sous Chef and Pastry Chef Louisville's Le Relais Restaurant) will be catering an innovative dinner paired with artisanal microbrews from NABC and around the country. NABC's Prost is the place, and as of today, tickets are still available (all-includive; $70 per person). Follow the link above for details.

Halloween Beer Tasting at Keg Liquors in Clarksville

From 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. It's the Keg’s second annual Halloween themed tasting, offering a list of beers with either spooky names, or scary labels, but all remain great beers. Here is the lineup assembled by owner Todd Antz:

Belhaven Wee Heavy
Wychwood Hobgoblin
North Coast Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout
Young's Old Nick English Barleywine
New Holland Dragon's Milk
Avery Samaels
BBC Hell for Certain (if available)

All beers in the tasting will be $1 off the day of the tasting, and the event is open to the public provided the public is 21 years of age.

Wednesday, October 31
Halloween bash at Connor’s Place

NABC beers are on tap, bar owner Dave Himmel is encouraging costumes, and NABC's own Jared Williamson and his longtime collaborator Tommy Potts will be performing. It's all taking place downtown at 207 East Main. Wear a Groucho mask and a Hawaiian shirt, and come as "Dave Himmel."
