Something about this time of year just screams stouts and porters. There are some seasons where the fridge is full of Kolsch, or IPA, or in the month of February, darker beers. Lovable Lally from Crucible Brewing is an American Stout, and like all their other beers, it's top notch. This is a peanut butter stout, and I like that it's nutty, and rich but not gimmicky and not overpowering. It's just yummy. Be sure to visit them in Everett or Woodinville, or pick some up in stores. I know we love our summers here in the PNW but it's hard to beat a good stout in front of the fire with your kitties or pups. Cheers.
