Alesmith Brewing (San Diego, CA) has released their Halloween themed brew a little early this year – Evil Dead Red. The beer is blood red (of course), meant to be drank in costume, over semi-sober pumpkin carving, or while watching a good horror flick.

The result is a fiendishly smooth brew that will make your taste buds scream with delight.
Alesmith Evil Dead Read is available in 22oz bombers and draft for a limited time. The brewery’s tap room has a special t-shirt, just for this occasion.
