Stella Artois Is Releasing Its First-Ever Halloween-themed Beer

It’s harder for adults to enjoy the Halloween season because we can’t go door to door unless we’re dressed as a political canvasser zombie. Luckily us adults can enjoy a spooky-style beer this Halloween, thanks to Stella Artois.

The Midnight Lager is the brand’s first-ever, limited-edition dark beer. The new holiday brew is a “black lager with notes of Belgian dark chocolate and freshly brewed espresso,” according to a press release.

The beer has 5.4% ABV, and the color is “inspired by the midnight sky itself.”

The bad news is, only folks in New York will be able to drink the dark brew on Halloween night — Sleepy Hollow gets first dibs but the beer will go nationwide on November 4.

Visitors and residents of Sleepy Hollow can stop by J. P. Doyle’s and The Hudson Anchor for free pours of Midnight Lager from 6-9pm on Halloween night. These bars will also have the beer available for purchase on October 31: 

  • Set Back Inn, 33 Main St, Tarrytown, NY
  • EATalia on Hudson, 385 S Riverside Ave, Croton-On-Hudson, NY

“The rich taste of Stella Artois Midnight Lager along with the deep, warm notes perfectly complements the cold crisp weather and will be the brew worth toasting with this holiday season,” said Stella Artois VP Lara Krug. “We’re excited to kick off our holiday spirit a little early this year on Halloween in Sleepy Hollow!”
