Urban Artifact Releases Trick or Treat Mix Pack for Halloween

Urban Artifact Releases Trick or Treat Mix Pack for Halloween

Urban Artifact in Cincinnati, Ohio has announced the release of a fascinating new mixed 12-pack of beers with a Halloween theme.

The brewery's Trick or Treat Mix Pack features 6 different beers that are billed as "mystery flavors." Some of them represent tricks and others represent treats.

Though Urban Artifact is known for producing its beers using only real fruit and ingredients, the brewery is making an exception with this interesting concept.

Lead Brewer Josh Elliott explains in a release, "we wanted to mimic specific flavor profiles not normally found in beer and give people visual ques as to what the trick or treat flavors are meant to be."

The full release from the brewery is below.
