At least 8 stouts will be featured this year, including Badda Bing, a flanders-style sour cherry stout; The Murky Pearl, brewed with Willapa Bay oysters; Bourbon Barrel-aged Cavatica Stout; Spank Stout, brewed with 3 varieties of hot pepper; and the ever-popular Coffee Girl Stout, made with espresso. Several guest stouts will also be on tap, including The Abyss from Deschutes Brewery. A flight of all the stouts is available for a blind tasting, and commemorative Stout Month t-shirts will be for sale.
The annual "Stout & Oysters" Brewer's Dinner will take place on February 10th, featuring 5 courses of mouth-watering oysters paired with selected stouts. Tickets for the Brewer's Dinner are $55, or $100 for two.
