6 Halloween Pumpkin Carving Inspirations for Beer Geeks
It’s okay if you don’t like pumpkin beer, you’re OBVIOUSLY still a Halloween fanatic! Here are a few ways you can show off your love of beer and combine it with your burning desire to be festive this Halloween.

1. The Branded Pumpkin
If you’ve got a steady hand, and a favourite brewery or beer brand, give this pumpkin carving style a shot.
2. The Drunken Pumpkin AKA The Puking Frat-Boy Pumpkin
This is a classic style — easy to do, funny, childish, and goofy.
3. For the Hop Lovers, a ‘Hoppy Halloween’ Pumpkin
A great style for you designer/awesome/creative types — and a no-brainer for those annual pumpkin carving contests at the brewery.
4. The “COLD BEER” Pumpkin Sign
Sometimes you just need to know where to go to get the party started…
5. The Beer Cooler Pumpkin
An evolution of the previous “Cold Beer” pumpkin, the beer cooler pumpkin is functional and ‘fancy’! Here’s a great how-to tutorial on how to create a beer-cooling pumpkin (with dry ice) from the tipsy bartender.
6. The Pumpkin Keg / Tapped Pumpkin
Admittedly, this one seems a little funny/friggin’ gross (pumpkin-saturated beer???–yuuuck), so until we try it, we’re not recommending it. That said, it’s all over the web as a “festive” way to serve beer, so we included it for aesthetics. Here’s a how-to video from SamuelAdams; if you try this…let us know how it went!
That sums up our *SUPREMELY* inspirational (and brief) beer + pumpkin carving ideas post. Show us how you fared this Halloween and tag @justbeerapp in your beer pumpkin photos!
