Stout Day: Almost Here!

Stout Day!
Technically (according to, Stout Day is November 3rd, so crack one open and toast to that delicious, dark brew that keeps us warm on cold winter days.  

If you happen to be in Cordova this Friday, November 4th, come to the Reluctant Fisherman!  I am helping Adam with a Stout Day celebration for the town.  Here's the line-up + 3 facts:

Denali Brewing Company's Chuli Stout.
1. Is a dry Irish stout with coffee-like flavors.
2. Was named after the Chulitna River, one of the 3 rivers in the Talkeetna area.
3. Won Best Ale in Alaska at the 2011 Alaska State Fair Microbrew Invitational.

Alaskan Brewing Company's Perseverance Ale
1. Is a Russian Imperial stout.
2. Was brewed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the brewery.
3. Uses fireweed honey from Delta Junction for delicate sweetening.

Kassik's Roughneck Stout
1. Is an Oatmeal Stout.
2. Was brewed as a tribute to the oil industry workers.
3. The brewery is located in the woods of Nikiski, next to the home of the brewer.

Hint: these facts might come in handy.
See you tomorrow!
