Stout Night at The Growler, UPDATED

Just in time for the holiday food orgies, here's a chance to try some stouts and maybe make a decision about what to have with your turkey.
The Growler Station is the place to be this evening!

We tasted 3 stouts:
Bells Double Creme
Left Hand Fade to Black
Thirsty Dog Siberian Night

All were excellent examples of the style, but Siberian Night won the night, so to speak, for me and several others. Paired very well with the fig-cheese-bacon appetizers that Kay made. Our friend Mairr Uhrinek (with help from Jason) made an elegant pumpkin cream cheese roll that went with all three stouts but especially the Double Creme.

A very successful, educational evening, we all had a good time and no one got their clothes dirty!! Win-win.

Thanks to Big Jon and Courtney for doing the hosting chores.

And if you need some refresher info about stouts, this link does a good job of displaying the different categories. I for one am all  about Oatmeal Stouts.
