Stout Day Returns!

Winter is coming, and as the weather turns colder our attentions turn towards darker brews to help warm us up; typically porters and stouts. It only makes sense then to honor these classic recipes with a day of their own, thus International Stout Day was born! First conceived and celebrated in 2011, International Stout Day is a chance to gather together at your favorite pub (Here we hope!) with friends and fellow craft beer aficionados to enjoy a few great examples of these deliciously dark styles.

Here at the Couch we’ll be observing International Stout Day on the 1st Thursday in November — Thursday, November 7th from open (4:00pm) until close (Midnight)!*

More Surprises

*These past 2 years, Stout Day had been observed on an early Thursday in November but this year the organizers have changed the “official” date to 11/8. The two main reasons we’re observing #StoutDay on Thursday instead of Friday is that we want to be able to offer as many stouts and porters on tap as possible while avoiding disappointing the fewest number of our friends and fans who don’t fancy those styles. Since fridays are busy days here, we know we’d have too many folks dropping in that would not be seeking those brews.
Also, as with #IPAday, we didn’t want it to be a weekend day, but we wanted it close enough to the weekend so that if people partied a little “too hard”, they wouldn’t have to worry about paying for it all weekend long.
