Toast stout month with one of these roasty-toasty pours:

  • Half Acre Beer Company’s Big Hugs Imperial Stout: brewed with coffee, this dark matte bourbon brew from El Salvador will feel like a warm embrace
  • Spiteful Brewing’s B/A Malevolence Choc Caliente: this barrel-aged stout is brewed with a unique blend of chile flakes, dried Aleppo chile pepper, roasted vanilla beans, and spicy cinnamon.

…and there are more where that came from. We’ll keep you posted on newly tap’d stouts all month long, but hurry in now and try one of these before they’re gone. (Psst, stouts aren’t your thing? One of our other 12 hyper-local brews will be.)
