    Anybody know anything about this? Halloween label or a new beer all together?

    They did this last year for ZBC and I am pretty sure it's the same beer. I've been wrong before though.

    The third (?) of three such labels (z.i.v. full-wrap can designs) for the annual Zombie Pub Crawl, in Minneaplois. It's the largest of its kind in the American Midwest, doncha know! :D

    Shouldn't that be Brain Melt (my cousin's [affectionate] name for the beer)?

    Bought two cases of 16 oz cans on sale cheaper than cases of 12 oz cans, because Halloween (Zombie Crawl) marketing promotion over. 16 oz cans..............because sometimes 12 oz cans just not enough.....

    I think I remember it being called Brain Belt Cranium at one point. I like that, Grain Belt Premium = Brain Belt Cranium. I wonder how much of it gets drank at ZPC? I'm guessing a staggering number.
