If you don’t yet have it marked on your calendar, be sure to pencil in the International Stout Day celebration set for Nov. 3 at TapWerks. This promises to be an exciting night of stout indulgence, complete with many varieties of stout and stout-infused food offerings. For example, here’s a rundown of some of the stouts and stout-foods that have been confirmed:
-Redbud Brewing will bring two casks of Arbor (the new 10% ABV Imperial Chocolate Stout) blended with a 13% ABV barrel-aged barley wine.
-Marshall Brewing will bring a coffee-infused Big Jamoke. (Technically a porter, but Marshall’s Wes Alexander points out that stouts were originally called “stout porters.”)
-Choc was experimenting with different versions of its new Winter Stout seasonal, and it looks like the leader in the clubhouse is a chocolate-infused version.
-COOP Ale Works will bring three firkins: A barrel-aged Imperial Stout, an Imperial Stout with raspberries added and an Imperial Stout blended with kriek.
-Tapwerks is collaborating with Prairie Thunder Bakery on a Rogue Chocolate Stout cupcake with espresso-infused icing.
-Food offerings will include Guinness beef stew, stout beer-battered fish and chips and other items to be determined.
This. Will. Be. Awesome.
