Don't be afraid of the dark...

The stout is making a comeback at the Station. We are going to have a stout back on tap and see how well it fits in the regular line-up. We will be rotating the stout style to better fit the season. To begin this new house style, we will offer the Milky Way Stout. This has been my favorite sweet stout around for a while so why not bring it back as our lead-off brew. Hopefully we can squeeze in four or five stouts throughout the year.

This will be the beer paired with the dessert course at the next Brewer's Dinner. There will also be a special small firkin of the Milky Way with spices that is an alternative pairing for this course also.

Keep an eye on the blog, as I will post a date this stout will be tapped.
