International Stout Day activities abound in OKC

The annual International Stout Day is on Thursday, and some of our local bars are delivering with some stout beer lineups. (See what I did there?)

Let's start off with TapWerks, which has planned a fairly jaw-droppingly good series of flights and pints. Like IPA Day in August, TapWerks is rolling out hourly flights, at $12/flight. Here they are:

5 p.m.
-Roughtail Bait and Switch
-Mustang Udderly Awesome Peanut Butter Milk Stout
-(405) LHB, Batch 1
-Iron Monk Somethin' Pumpkin
-Anthem Sour Small

6 p.m.
-COOP 2014 Coconut TROAIS
-COOP 2014 Cherry Coconot TROAIS
-Roughtail Shore Leave
-Anthem Imperial Stout
-Anthem Coffee Coconut Uroboros

7 p.m.
-COOP 2014 Coffee TROAIS
-Elk Valley Coffee Nemesis
-Black Mesa Los Naranjos
-Roughtail Midwatch
-(405) FDR, Batch 1

8 p.m.
-COOP 2014 Tequila TROAIS
-COOP 2015 TROAIS (non barrel-aged)
-Prairie Vanilla Noir
-Marshall 2014 Black Dolphin Stout
-Goose Island 2014 Bourbon County Brand Stout

Some of those beers will not be familiar, so how about a little primer on a few of the one-offs?

-Roughtail Bait and Switch: A white stout; a stout disguised as a light beer (8% ABV)
-Iron Monk Somethin' Pumpkin: Pumpkin pie butterscotch stout (7.3%)
-Roughtail Shore Leave: Tropical stout with rum, oak, Scotch bonnet and vanilla (7.6%)
-Anthem Sour Small: Session sour stout (4.5%)
-Anthem Imperial Stout: With vanilla, strawberry, coriander and cocoa nibs (9.5%)
-Black Mesa Los Naranjos: This year's coffee stout collaboration with Elemental Coffee (8%)
-Roughtail Midwatch: Imperal stout with coffee, bourbon, vanilla, oak and chocolate (10%)
-COOP 2014 Tequila TROAIS: Whiskey barrel-aged imperial stout aged one year in tequila barrels (13.1%)
-COOP 2015 TROAIS: This year's yet-to-be-released TROAIS, prior to barrel aging (13.1%)

TapWerks is also offering up a selection of starters, entrees and desserts featuring stout-infused recipes. Really, you can't go wrong.

But let's say you can't make it to TapWerks. Fear not, others are joining in the fun.

-The Patriarch is getting in on the festivities with a variety of stouts promised to be on tap, including a special offerings from Roughtail. Also, the first 24 people to order a stout after 6 p.m. will receive a special glass. The full list of beers is expected to be released on the TapHunter app today (Wednesday).

-Pub W in Oklahoma City and Norman will celebrate Stout Day by featuring a number of brews, including Evil Twin Biscotti Break.

Bonus side note: McNellie's OKC is hosting a Lagunitas Beer Dinner at 7 p.m. Nov. 10. Email for more info or to reserve a spot.
