Weekend Tap Update – This One’s For You, Stout Fans.

According to the announcement from Blue 5 this afternoon, it really isn’t all about IPAs, even during the summer.  Or perhaps the recent influx of keg upon keg of hop forward beers due to Stone’s “Most Bitter Bar” contest led to this.  Either way, If you are a fan of delicious, big on flavor stouts, I would highly recommend making your way to the downtown restaurant this weekend.  No fewer than seven new stouts are making their way onto the taps.  Included, according to the release, is the new Stone Farking Wheaton Woot Stout, a barrel aged beer with pecans added, which has been riding a wave of social media and internet related popularity.  Another is the Lost Rhino Woody Stout, which made an appearance at this years Big Lick Beertopia and was quite good.  Others include a version of Avery’s The Czar and fan favorite Creme Brulee from Southern Tier.  Whatever you do, don’t necessarily count out the stout from New Zealand, from Moa Brewing.  If this is the same beer that has been seen around town in bottles, it has been aged in Pinot Noir barrels and is well worth a taste.
