This week, the Asheville Ale Trail is preparing for the upcoming “International Stout Day” on Nov 8th (What? You mean it wasn’t already on your calendar?). To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we’re asking the people who know best (i.e. you) to tell us who’s brewing the best stouts in and around Asheville.
Once the votes are tallied The Asheville Ale Trail will be presenting a first of it’s kind followup tasting event with the top contenders where we will officially crown Asheville’s Favorite stout for 2013. For this event, the Asheville Ale Trail has partnered with Cliff Mori, certified Cicerone and owner of Brew-Ed, an Asheville brewery tour and beer education company, to help select our list of stouts this year. Cliff will also be assisting with our tasting event later in the month and helping us learn a little more about these rich and delicious brews.
Voting has already started, and ends November 7th at Midnight. We’ll announce the results of our poll on November 8th (Stout day) and our Stout tasting event is scheduled for Thursday, November 14th (we’ll have more details to come!).
So let’s not waste any more time; head over to the Asheville Ale Trail’s Contests section and tell us your favorite local stout!
