Examples include nitrogen-poured Belgian Dip Chocolate Stout, Korova Cream Stout and Old School Irish Stout. The two pubs will also be pouring Yonder Mountain Stout, Thunder Head Stout and Cherry Dip Stout (a chocolate stout with sweet cherry puree). New this year will be Trickster Stout, which is loaded with hops, along with Usurper and The Nihilist.
The bars will also offer a roundup of guest stouts from local and national brewers, including Stone, Anderson Valley, Twisted Pine, Dog Fish Head, Avery and Great Divide.
And, for the third year in a row, Mountain Sun will host a Stout Homebrew Competition; the winner gets to help brew his or her own recipe on Mountain Sun's 6-barrel system.
