Whether you need something to help you get through trick-or-treating or prefer an adult beverage in your bag in place of candy, Conquest has just the thing for you Thursday night: A Halloween party that includes the launch of four brand new beers.
In what’s shaping up to be the Columbia brewery’s biggest party since opening day, Conquest is hosting a party the evening of the 31st. The event is family friendly, but those in the 21+ crowd are in for quite a treat of their own in the form of a handful of new releases:
- Harlequin, a spiced imperial stout brewed with cinnamon, clove, vanilla and more. While there’s no pumpkin in it, fans of that style will be pleased as punch. (Be sure to track down Matt and tell him you love the pumpkin beer.)
- A currently unnamed Farmhouse IPA, the brewery’s first funky offering. This one is a blend of Conquest’s Warrior Heart IPA and the experimental saison yours truly brewed with the crew a few months ago.
- The second release in the Cyclops series, a single-hopped Newport Black IPA, which is pretty self-explanatory. This thing’s a palate wrecker, but not a night ender: It’s a session IPA clocking in at around only 4% ABV.
- Novemberfest, an Oktoberfest that was a little late to the party.
In addition to the new brews, The Wurst Wagon will be slinging brats and more, there will be tours of the “haunted” brewery and a best and worst costume contest will be held.
The tasting room will be open for extended hours for the night, opening at 5 PM and running until 10:30 PM.
