President’s Day Stout

President's Day Stout

Did you know that George Washington loved stout?
Today we will forego the cherry pie, and reach directly for the President’s Day Stout. And it so happens that we carry a great selection of California-brewed stout. Really, a little taste test might be in order. Check out these five staff picks.

Voo Doo American Stout
Left Coast Brewing Company
San Clemente, CA
Voo Doo is a full bodied, dark brew that is rich and malty with plenty of roasted barley character. This hearty stout is layered with flavors of roasted barley, chocolate, and coffee coming from the highest quality imported malts. Its creamy long lasting head completes the brew, tempting your taste buds.

Drakonic Imperial Stout
Drakes Brewing Company
San Leandro, CA
This Imperial Stout has the strength and viscosity to tackle a Siberian mid-winter drinking session. Drakonic is smooth and dense with flavors of licorice, coffee, and chocolate. Sip, savor and give in to its seductive malt embrace.

Class V Stout
Kern River Brewing Company
Kernville, CA
This non-traditional beer is an Oatmeal Stout, Milk Stout, and an Imperial Stout all in one. With a complex flavor profile ranging from coffee to chocolate, the sweetness is complemented with nugget and centennial hops to produce an extraordinary finish.

Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout
The Lagunitas Brewing Company
Petaluma, CA
Brewed with boatloads of roasted coffee in each batch for that extra Krunk… this Mondo Coffee Stout will leave you wondering whether you’re coming or going. Other notes of dark chocolate, smoked wood, mocha, slight leather, and oak. Dry but not bitter.

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout
North Coast Brewing Company
Fort Bragg, California
Produced in the tradition of 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great, Old Rasputin is a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish.

Happy President’s Day to all our Piedmont Grocery customers!
