I’ve just made it back from the corner beer store with my Halloween six pack of beer. This year, I’m getting out of the usual mainstream beer routine. I figured I’d be a little more festive this year.
So tonight, I’m drinking a few spine-chilling and horrifying beers to celebrate the tradition of All Saint’s Eve, all while handing out candy to the little ghouls lurking about my neighborhood.
My Halloween six pack you ask? Well, it’s six of the deadliest, darkest, zombified, satanic, bloodsucking, spellbinding beers you can find on the planet. There’s going to be some bad stuff going down tonight!
My Halloween Six Pack of Beer
1. Dead Guy Ale from Rogue – You can’t have a Halloween beer list without including this German Maibock type ale. Dead Guy has been around since the early 1990s, making it a classic. Brewed with the company’s proprietary Pacman yeast, Dead Guy Ale has a deep, malty aroma and a hearty, rich flavor.
2. The Witching Hour from Earth Eagle Brewings – The term witching hour refers to the time when creatures of the night are at their most powerful and black magic most effective. The Witching Hour is supposedly black magic in a glass. A beautiful saison taken to the dark from the addition of roasted malts.
3. Zombie Dust from 3 Floyds Brewing – They say it’s intensely hopped and gushingly undead. Zombie Dust was created by 3 Floyds for their friends in the comic book industry. With an ABV of 6.2%, it’s perfect for quenching your thirst after the day’s zombie ambush.
4. Not Today Satan from Mispillion River Brewing – This IPA is a little unexpected. Featuring an unholy combo of El Dorado, Centennial, Columbus, Cascade and Mosaic hops and packs a throat cutting punch of 7.3% ABC. You’ll need a glass of ice water to put out the fire.
5. Nosferatu from Great Lakes Brewing – An imperial red ale that’s ruby red in color with a toasty malt body lurking underneath a stunning hop bite. Nosferatu has some sharp teeth, at 8% ABV.
6. Dark Thoughts from Baerlic Brewing – This evil IPA is brewed with cold-steeped roasted malts and is smooth and dark. The 6.66% ABV and 66.6 IBUs staves off all that is pure in your soul.
Since this is a beer and domains site, it wouldn’t be right not to check on the domain names of the beers above, would it? I took a quick look at each brand of beer to see who the registrant of the domain is.
- DeadGuyAle.com – Registered since 2005, does not resolve. Under privacy and I’m sure that Rogue is not the registrant.
- TheWitchingHour.com – Registered since 2003. With this domain the “The” works just as good as without it, as in WitchingHour.com. I love this domain name, a great potential brand, that’s why I bought it in an expired auction a couple years ago.
- ZombieDust.com – This domain expired back in 2017 and was picked up on the drop by DropCatch. It now resides in the Huge Domains portfolio.
- NotTodaySatan.com – Purchased in 2015 after it expired and was picked up on the drop by DropCatch. Purchased from them by an individual in North Carolina.
- Nosferatu.com – Registered since 2004, no site currently on the domain. Registered by an individual in Florida.
- DarkThoughts.com – Old domain, registered in 1997. Nothing on it. A design company from Virginia is the registrant.

Beer Distro Domain of the Day: CraftduMonde.com – Craft of the World. Excellent name for a craft beer importer. Import craft is coming big time by the way.
ECDC.com – All I see here is East Coast Distributing Company.
WineAndMore.com – There is one in every state.
HorlacherBrewing.com – Horlacher was the last of the major Allentown, PA breweries to go out of business back in the late 1970s.
RoyalRepublic.com – Two-word brand name here. I can see this as the name of a wine and spirits wholesaler.
WineLTD.com – I don’t normally like these type abbreviations on the end of your domain. But, if you have the category killer name in front, I tend to make an exception. It would be best to also have WineLimited.com, though.
WineTastingColorado.com – It’s a little long, but it tells your customers exactly what you do, making it a good domain name.
BeerTankard.com – It’s a thing, a large drinking vessel.
SmallBarrelTasting.com and SmallBarrelTour.com – These are little long, but for branding purposes they need no explanation to customers. Memorable and exact match domains are perfect for telling a story.
MBBrands.com – I see Miller Brewing or Miller Beer Brands here. Good for a Miller distributor.
VinoClub.com – Everyone wants to be in the Vino Club. Good wine club brand domain.
AreaBeers.com – Tell everyone about the beers in your area.
LiveCrafter.com – Fun name for small craft distributor.
BreweryAdvisors.com and BreweryAdvisers.com – If I advised or consulted with breweries I would definitely want these domain names. Its good to have both of these. Yes, both are accepted variations of the word and people never know which one is right or wrong.
TrustImports.com – Trust is good!
CannDistribution.com – If you are in the cannabis distribution business, you won’t go wrong with this domain name.
AlliedConnect.com – Another decent name for a beer wholesaler business.
CreateBrandSell.com – Call to action names like this one are terrific marketing domains.
MillerBeverages.com – Another Miller Distributor name, but I like the singular better.
CraftyTown.com – Nice craft wholesaler domain name, but I would want CraftTown.com.
BetterBeerBlog.com – This was a beer blog for about ten years. Lots of backlinks for SEO here. I wonder why he stopped?
TapSpecials.com – Perfect for telling everyone about your specials. Very easy to remember!
GranitePeaks.com – Nice brandable name for a distributor or craft brewery.
ProfitBuilding.com – This is what we all hope to accomplish in the beer business.
