International Stout Day

The leaves are changing, the temperatures are dropping, the MLB hot stove is about to heat up, and the holidays are quickly approaching.

International Stout Day is today; a holiday for all beer lovers to unite and make merry of the darkest, and some say, best style of beer out there.

Stouts are darker, hoppier and richer, so this year, when you’re reaching for your pint, go for the most iconic stout in the word—Guinness. With a sweet, bitter flavor, subtle notes of roasted barley and coffee, a dark color and rich, creamy head, nothing compares to a perfectly poured pint of Guinness.

And why not change it up a bit and go for a Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, a stout from Guinness that was introduced to the US in early 2010.

Whether it be a sweet, dry, or Russian Imperial style stout, just grab one and enjoy.

Notable PA Stouts:
Stoudts- Fat Dog, Victory- Donnybrook, Lancaster- Milk Stout, Weyerbacher- Old Heathen, Troegs- Java Head, Sly Fox- O'Reily, Iron Hill- Russian Imperial, Yards- Love, Millbock- Black, and many others.
