International Stout Day is November 8

International Stout Day 2012

Huh. Who knew? Next Thursday, November 8, is International Stout Day. This year apparently marks the second annual International Stout Day celebration.

From StoutDay.com:

International Stout Day is a worldwide celebration of the iconic beer style, Stout. Taking place in homes, pubs, breweries and restaurants; it’s all about celebrating the craft beer revolution, relishing in this beloved beer style, sharing your photos, tasting notes and events with the world.

It seems like every other week, somebody tries to capitalize on the popularity of beer today, with another beer day or beer week whatever. And I’m okay with that, I guess, though I don’t really need another excuse to drink. (At least International Stout Day has a website with some details about the event, unlike shitty ol’ National Drink Beer Day.)

I’m traveling to Portland Maine next week for Portland Beer Week, and I’ll definitely be on the lookout for Maine Beer Co.’s Mean Old Tom, but not because Thursday is International Stout day; because Mean Old Tom is a mean fucking stout.
