Spooky Brew Stories

I love this time of year. The air is crisp, the leaves have changed colors, and Halloween is on everyone's mind. Scary ghost stories, werewolves, vampires, goblins... Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein!

Heck, this year Colorado even has the Sci-Fi Channel's Ghost Hunters pluming the depths of our state. They're in Colorado Springs checking out the Briarhurst manor as well as in Estes Park (home to a great brewery by the way) looking into The Stanley Hotel. The ghost-filled Stanley is actually where the great author Stephen King got the inspiration for his classic horror novel, The Shining. He in fact wrote some of the book while staying there.

So, with all this spookiness in the air I ask you my fellow beer brothers and sisters -- do you have a good ghost story that deals directly with beer or even better, a brewery?

And it doesn't have to be relegated to the confines of the great state of Colorado. I know of one (which I'll be sharing shortly) regarding Lemp Brewing Company in St. Louis, Missouri. But I want more. Lots more! So send me what you know! Otherwise I'll set a Brew Ghoul on you.

Huh. I guess ghosts and goblins are cool with the beer people! Good to know!
