LISTEN: Thirsty Thursday - International Stout Day

Today we will celebrate the wonderful world of stouts.

Why you ask?

Friday is International Stout Day! That’s right…go to for more info. For the newbie, a stout is in its most basic sense…a strong porter.

That’s why it is called a stout.

Stouts come in all shapes and sizes from basic, Oatmeal and milk stouts to vanillas, chocolates and the top of the mountain…Imperials.

We took a look at a few to get ya started:

Sierra Nevada Stout

Nimbus Oatmeal Stout
Old Rasputin
Breckenridge Oatmeal Stout
Sierra Nevada Narwhal

So as we mark International Stout Day this Friday…raise a glass won’t you. Newbies, the Sierra Nevada is a great start. Old brew heads, go big and make it an Imperial.

Either way you go, get home safe. Don’t drink and drive.

Until next week, happy International Stout Day.
