Everyone knows that your favorite cocktails are like candy for adults. If you are looking to impress your friends by throwing an over-the-top Halloween party, or prefer watching some scary movies on the couch, nothing will get you feeling like a child making their Halloween costume again like brewing some Halloween-inspired drinks.

Alright for Volume 4 I thought I would do my favorite beer/cider spots in the city. This is a more diverse list than the others have been so far. Because I go to a lot of different bars for different reasons, this should be a cool list. Some of these places have food, some don’t, but they are all very near and dear to my heart. I am not much of a sports watcher, unless it is soccer, as I have now been boycotting the NFL for several years.

Ever since man first discovered how to brew some brewskis, alcohol has been a huge part of global culture. Traditions surround serving it. Historical figures are known for their love of specific drinks. Alcohol is even mentioned in the texts of almost every single major religion.
Be it about alcoholism or drinking just in good fun, alcohol consumption will always be a popular theme in music. The most timeless of these songs tend to be quite obviously about alcohol; however, not every drinking song is as obvious as "Drinking Song" by Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra. Some tell a tale through poetic lyricism, others might be straightforward after a more concentrated listen, but most songs you didn't know were about drinking will, at the very least, hide its true colors beyond the title and take a true second listen to fully comprehend.
