Pumpkin beer is by far the best part of fall. Get your friends together and taste test all the best pumpkin beers with a pumpkin beer tasting party. Check out these tips to host your own fun party!
Last year we hosted a pumpkin beer tasting party. It was so much fun for me that I want to do this every year. If you love pumpkin, you’ll love this beer tasting party.
How to Host a Pumpkin Beer Tasting Party
Step 1: Pick up a few 4-6 Packs of Pumpkin Beer
We got 6 different types of pumpkin beer from Total Wine. This is my favorite place to go for the best wine and beer deals.
Step 2: Cover Beer Labels
Cover one of each type of beer with brown paper bags and remove the caps so no one can see which beer is which!
Put beer in a coozie first so the sweat doesn’t go through the bag.
Then label paper bags with numbers. Wrap the beers in the paper bags and make sure you remember which beer goes with which number!
I had to keep a list of the beers hidden so no one would know which one was which!
Step 3: Set Up Your Table
I used chalkboard paper so we could vote right on the table. You can find chalkboard paper at Target, Walmart, and craft stores. Can’t find it or don’t want to go to the store? Order a roll of chalkboard paper from Amazon.
Step 4: Set up Tasting Cups
Small Dixie Cups are perfect for tasting. I rimmed these with a cinnamon sugar rim. Check out the recipe and instructions for making your own cinnamon sugar rim here.
Step 5: Cast your Votes
Step 6: Enjoy your Favorite Beer
A blind taste test is fun. You can go a step further and have people write down tasting notes so they can remember which beer has a certain flavor (um- they’ll all taste like pumpkin though).
Have fun! Let me know if you decide to do this. I’d love to see how your party turns out. Tag me on social media so I can see it!
