Happy Stout Day!

Tomorrow may be the start of Richmond Beer Week but today is International Stout Day. Here are seven of my favorite stouts.

Weyerbacher Fifteen

It’s too bad this was only one of Weyerbacher’s anniversary beers. Smoked Imperial Stout! What is not to love? I think it’s time they bring this beer back full time.

Blue & Gray’s Stonewall Stout

I had this stout on my first James River Homebrewers Brews Cruise.  The stout from thisFredericksburg,VAbrewery was the first stout to make it into my stout pound cake.  

Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout

The vanilla and oak aging of this stout made it the perfect choice as an ingredient in my first attempt at a stout ice cream.  

Bell’s Cherry Stout

How do you top making a stout pound cake?  You make a stout pound cake with Bell’s Cherry Stout and coat it with a cherry preserve glaze.  

Lagunitas Imperial Stout

When I saw Tyler Florence’s Lamb Shank with Stout Gravy recipe, I knew I had to make it.  The recipe called for Guiness, which I’m not really a fan of, so I turned to Lagunitas.  

 Allagash Black

Maybe one of two Belgian style stouts I have ever tasted.  I’ve wanted to have more ever since the Mega Tasting at Once Upon a Vine South during last year’s Richmond Beer Week.
