"As we missed a week for Thanksgiving, we are back with a bumper edition. Heading into the dark winter days, we select 6 hearty stouts that we think are good selections for either go-to or treat beers from the dark side. Joining Mark and Phil is Chuck Fort, assistant brewer from Church Street. As all the beers are great in their own right, we won't be rating them, but instead we select our top 2, based solely on personal preference. To break up the stout session, we cleanse our palate with a short interview with Brandon Wright, head brewer at Plainfield's Werk Force Brewing. He won a gold medal at FOBAB 2016 for his Beautifully Broken, in the Fruit Beer category, and we caught up with him to find out all about his win and the beer."
