Whether you’re looking to scare some trick-or-treaters or show off your love for beer, there’s a beer pumpkin carving design for you.

The Best Beer Pumpkin Ideas for Halloween
1. Beer Logo Halloween Pumpkin Carving
If you’ve got a steady hand, and a favourite brewery or beer brand, you could give this pumpkin carving a shot. Let’s hope they send you some free beer for the promo!
2. Drunk Halloween Pumpkin / Puking Halloween Pumpkin
This is a classic style and pretty easy to create for those who are new to pumpkin carving. It’s funny, childish, and goofy– perfect.
3. Hops Halloween Pumpkin
This is for all you creative hop heads out there with an eye for design — and a no-brainer for those annual pumpkin carving contests at the brewery. “Hoppy” Halloween!
4. A “COLD BEER” Carved Pumpkin Sign
This is the ultimate “party here” sign. Sometimes you just need to know where to go to get the party started… Or you can use this to let the trick-or-treaters know that they aren’t getting a trick or a treat until they get you a cold one.
5. Easy Beer Cooler Pumpkin
No carving talent required! This is a must-have for your Halloween party. An evolution of the previous “Cold Beer” pumpkin, the beer cooler pumpkin is functional and ‘fancy’!

6. Pumpkin Beer Keg
Still lacking inspiration? You could always skip carving and convert your pumpkin into a keg – with the beer-tapped pumpkin
Admittedly, this one seems a little funny, but also friggin’ gross, so until we try it, we’re not going to recommend it. We think it’ll taste more like a random pumpkin-saturated beer than a pumpkin ale, which taste like a pumpkin on purpose. That said, it’s all over the web as a “festive” way to serve beer, so we included it for aesthetics.
