International Stout Day

Why do we love stouts? With their strong aromas and flavor, we can’t get enough of them. Not to mention they are the perfect beverage for these colder months we’re about to face. A few of our favorites include Ballast Point Sea Monster Stout, Deschutes Obsidian Stout and Left Hand Milk Stout.
History of Stout: Stout dates back to the 1700’s and originate in London. It was first brewed as a porter. As popularity increased for porters, brewers began brewing stronger types with different flavors. Stout, meaning “strong” was used to differentiate stronger porters. Stout porters later transitioned into just stout. Over the years many forms of stouts emerged such as Irish stouts, imperial stouts, milk stouts, oatmeal stouts, coffee stouts… just to name a few.
A stout marketing craze: Have you ever heard the slogan “Guinness is good for you?” It was thought up after market research in the 1920s suggested that people felt better after a pint. They even advised post-operative patients, blood donors, pregnant women and nursing mothers in England to drink Guinness. Crazy, huh?
