Beer calendar: It's Stout Month at Vine Street, and it's 5:00 at Renegade Brewing

Stout Month is in full effect right now at the Vine Street Pub in Denver, as well as the Mountain Sun and Southern Sun pubs in Boulder. The twentieth annual version of this awesome display of the dark arts features many of the stouts that Mountain Sun has become famous for, along with new brews, like Release the Kraken, a recipe provided by the winner of the brewery's Stout Month homebrew competition. There is also a special focus on barrel-aged stouts this year.

You can find more Stout Month info and dates on the next page, along with all of this week's craft-beer happenings.
