*We originally had this poll listed under “Asheville’s Best Stout” . It was brought to our attention that WNC would better reflect the geography of the breweries listed. We’ve since updated the title and graphics for  accuracy.

This November 8th, beer lovers everywhere celebrate International Stout Day, and we’ll do it for no other reason than the fact that someone declared it to be so.  Now, there are a lot of strange and unusual celebratory days on the calendar…I bet you didn’t know that October is host to World Porridge Day, National Cat Day and Dictionary Day, to name just a few. Regardless of all these other dubious celebrations, International Stout Day is certainly something we can get behind at the Asheville Ale Trail.

[symple_column size=”one-half” position=”first”]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, a local Asheville brewery tour and beer education program, 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.


So here’s what you need to know:

  • Voting ends November 7th at Midnight
  • We’ll announce the results of our poll on November 8th.
  • Thursday, November 14th the Asheville Ale Trail will be hosting a stout tasting at Appalachian Vintners and a little Brew-Ed on stout beers from 6-8 pm.

So let’s not waste any more time; let’s get voting!
