    I’m at my neighbor’s house for trick or treat. We have a party every year while the kids go begging. I brought a keg of Oktoberfest to share, along with disposable plastic cups. Unlike at home, the beer is not losing its head! Now before you all give me tips, I know I do everything wrong with my beer glasses at home. Head retention is not a big deal to me, so my wife can wash my beer glasses any way she wants! It’s just funny to see a head in the plastic cup.

    Agree a great head on a beer doesnt make it taste anybetter it just makes it look more appealing. Maybe havento swap to plastic cups;).

    We were surprised by how many trick or treaters there were on the new neighborhood.

    Next year, we'll have more candy, a grill for hot dogs and/or Smores. And, seriously contemplating moving the kegerator outside so the adults can have a little treat

    I started bringing a keg last year to that party. The forlorn looking dads escorting their kids and wives love it. I have a second tank and a second regulator. I didn’t need the trash can full of ice tonight. It’s nice to go portable with a keg. Everyone loved the Oktoberfest. (And it’s an extract!)

    Second. It's a bit cool here a mile plus up but plenty of spooks. No beer yet, too chilly for outdoor adult activities. Will have one before bed.
