Stout and About

In the last two decades, Maine has earned a reputation for craft-brewed beers. And what better time to celebrate than St. Patrick's Day? Maine microbrewers consistently produce some of the best stouts we've had (and we've had quite a few, thank you very much). So this year, if you'd like to break with tradition and raise a toast with something other than Guinness tonight, here are a few of our picks. Slainte!

Marshall Wharf Sea Level Stout: It seems like every beer David Carlson touches turns to gold, and this is no exception. We've never met a beer from Marshall Wharf that we didn't like. Click here for locations.

Cadillac Mountain Stout: Rich and roasty, this award-winning brew from Bar Harbor is a perennial favorite. Think chocolate and hops. Click here for more info.

Gritty's Black Fly Stout: If you like your beers tall, dark and complex, this is the perfect match for you. It's malty and delicious.

Allagash Black: This Belgian-style stout is black as night, but it's neither heavy nor filling. Instead, it's just an ultra-drinkable brew. Another Allagash masterpiece, really.

Black Bear Microbrew Demon Stout: Don't let the name scare you off — this seasonal selection from Orono's microbrewery will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Sebago Lake Trout Stout: We love an oatmeal stout, and this creamy, smooth one from Sebago (pictured above) is great.
