One of the best attributes of posts for The Session is that they can range all over the map. Some posts follow common themes and can be grouped well with other posters, while others venture into areas that can only be labeled "off topic." This month's host, The Beer Wench stated "there are no rules about how to write this topic . . ." I intend to take her at her word.
One of the most fascinating things about Halloween is how inventive people can become when designing their costumes. The tradition of dressing in costume on Halloween dates back to the Middle Ages, possibly from the practice of "souling," where the poor would go door to door on Hallowmas (November 1) and receive food in returns for prayers for the dead on All Souls Day (November 2). Dressing in costume, and arguably the entire Halloween holiday, has become commercialized in modern times. This has resulted in costume inspiration coming from a variety of commercial products, including the Lug Wrench favorite - beer.
In this mode of thought, I decided to link beer related costumes with this month's Session topic of Frankenstein Beers. Below are several of the more humorous and surprising costumes I could find on the web, along with brief commentary one each.
I hope you have enjoyed this journey into a world tangentially related to beer. If you have seen your own humorous or horrendous beer-related costumes, be sure to leave a comment and tell us about it.
