SAUGANASH — Alarmist Brewing, 4055 W. Peterson Ave., is leaning hard into its first Halloween since the opening of its taproom in the spring.

The brewery will host "Five Nights of Fright" between Friday and the holiday on Tuesday, offering special beers and off-the-wall activities for adults and kids alike.

First comes "Bloody Firkin Friday," a night named for the beer cask used with its special English-style beer engines. Brewers will use the special taps to serve a red-dyed version of its flagship Phobophobia Patersbier, bartender Ethan Sommer said.

The taproom will host a costume contest from 7-10 p.m. Saturday, when brewers will award $25 in Alarmist credit to the individual and couple they deem best-dressed.

Pets are encouraged to show off their own costumes from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, when a dollar from every pint sold will go toward the K9 4 Keeps adoption service.

Visitors can sing "scaryoke" from 6-9 p.m. Monday, choosing from a specialized playlist of "Halloween songs and karaoke classics," Sommer said.

Finally, the brewery will mark Halloween on Tuesday with bushels full of candy for trick-or-treaters and $2 off growler fills all day.

The brewery is also promising "a little hazy surprise" all weekend long, Sommer said.

The taproom is open 4-11 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, noon-midnight Fridays, 11 a.m.-midnight Saturdays and noon-10 p.m. Sundays.
