There are a lot of made up holidays. Well actually, they're all made up... but everybody wants to celebrate International Leave the Office Early Day on June 6th. Or how about the World Toothache Day on February 9th- Can't wait to celebrate that one again next year. And coming soon... December 8th! Or "Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day" (or just a regular Wednesday for Harrison). Anyway, the point of all these is, well probably to support the greeting card industry. But there is one International Day that supports great beer, and hopefully some of your favorite breweries- International Stout Day! That's way better than International Nutella Day (of course you could aim for a 2-for-1 and drink Stoutello from Knee Deep out in Auburn, CA). This holiday goes back to 2011 in Southern California when TheBeerGoddess (Erin Peters) wanted to promote attention and awareness of the style. It caught on and we're now in the 10th year celebrating this beautiful beer style. The celebration happens on the first Thursday of November each year, so mark your calendars for this Thursday, November 4th, and get ready for host Harrison Hickok to tell us a little more about Untappd's role in this Elective Holiday worth celebrating!
You can earn this badge by checking-in any Stout on November 5th! We also highlight Outro Lado as our Verified Venue of the Week and shout out to Short's Brewing Company and Victory Brewing Company for bringing us the best beers we had this week.
