Mountain Sun celebrates Stout Month

Mountain SunLooking for another reason to drink dark brews in Feb-brew-ary? The Mountain Sun Brewery in Boulder is giving you plenty of reasons. The entire month of February has been declared Stout Month at the Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery in Boulder and their sister pub The Vine Street Pub in Denver. Read below an excerpt from their latest newsletter about the month long event:

Sixteen years ago Jack Harris (Mountain Sun’s original brewer) had a glorious idea to put Stout on twelve of the 21 taps for the month of February. He called this Stout Month. We continue this tradition with local, regional and national versions of the rich, thick and dark ale; Stout. Today Stout Month has become one of the most anticipated events among local beer connoisseurs.

And now, for the first time ever, Stout Month will be expanding beyond Boulder as The Vine Street Pub in Denver will join us in paying homage to the almighty Stout!

Throughout February, the following Stouts will be poured as our faucet space permits. Unfortunately, we cannot pour everything at once. Feel free to come back regularly to check out the latest additions to our 2009 lineup.

Update: for 2010 Stout Month info refer to this article.

You will be able to find these stouts only at:

Mountain Sun
1535 Pearl Street
