Face painting, costumes, and pumpkin events are fun ways for the little ones to participate. The Beer Week takes place all over Austin, at different breweries and venues, so be sure to check out the website and Beer Week’s social media to stay up-to-date on all of the hauntingly delicious craft beer events.
