Today’s post will be rather brief. This is becoming the busy season for Stout releases. We’ve just seen the annual release of Founder’s Breakfast Stout and many of the local breweries are hopping on the Stout release train – Lonerider with “Pistols at Dawn”, Fullsteam with IGOR, Son of IGOR, and Señor IGOR, and Burial with their tasty Skillet Donut Stout. I’m also seeing some great new releases in the coming days/weeks – Oskar Blues will be releasing a BA version of TENFIDY in 16oz. cans. The BA TENFIDY looks to be a very limited release, mostly out of their Colorado brewing outpost. All indications are that the NC brewery will not see any…..but things can always change. OB will also be releasing “Death by Coconut” porter in November; thankfully, this will see a much wider distribution! Wicked Weed will be having their Dark Arts bottle release this coming weekend in Asheville, NC. Those fortunate enough to have bought tickets will get a combo of Dark Arts plus Dark Arts w/Espresso!
If you want to share a release of a favorite Stout, drop me a note from the Comments page and I’ll make sure I include it in my next post! Thanks!
