Celebrate Halloween at these 6 Top Hotspots + Breweries in CT

14 Oct

Ladies and gents, it’s almost Halloween, so we thought we’d make things easy for ya and put together a nice guide to booze-infused parties that are going on here in Fairfield County and maybe just a bit beyond. We’re all super lucky this year because Halloween is actually on a Saturday, so you can go all out. Here we go, kids. 

Half Full 3rd Anniversary Halloween Bash

Date: 10/24 from 5-10

Location: Half Full Brewery, 43 Homestead Avenue in Stamford

Cost: $40

Why you should go: You will not only get as much beer as you can drink from their 9+ taps, but you’ll also pull in some great Half Full swag like a pint glass, a koozie, a key chain, and a sticker. Also, you’ll be happy to know that there will be two of our favorite food trucks there too: Hapa and Bounty! There will be live music throughout the night and there will even be a sick prize pack for the winner of the costume contest! This will be our third year going . . . and there’s a reason for that: it’s a great night filled with great people and a great vibe.

In addition, it wouldn’t be a party at Seaside without some killer punk and metal music \m/ from The Lock City Thieves, Fighting Cocks, Matt & The Mauraders, and Jimmy Junk Bird and The Stiffs. Seaside Tavern will have their usually good selection of brews and there will even be treats after you work up an appetite from all that thrashing.
