Pair Snickers with a stout, which has a lot of natural chocolate flavors and a mild bitterness. I would pair Belching Beaver’s Peanut Butter Stout, which is brewed with peanut butter and has flavors that match up well with the caramel, peanuts, and chocolate in Snickers.
Candy corn has a subtle caramel flavor that pairs well with a classic Vienna lager, which is a light- to medium-bodied beer that also has a subtle caramel flavor. Mike Hess Brewing Grazias Vienna Cream Ale would pair fantastically with candy corn.
Sour and Sweet Candy like Sweet Tarts
For fruit flavors or sour candies, which have an acidy after-taste, go best with a Belgian saison-style beer. Saisons are brewed with wild yeast which results in a spontaneous fermentation process. My personal favorite Beligan saison is Lost Abbey’s Red Barn.
