During the cold cold weather, abundant, decadent stout is the best option for sluggish drinking.
Stout is typically heavy-bodied, with a greater alcohol material and more robust taste profile than its brewed equivalents. From Russian Imperial to velvety oatmeal stout, there’s something for every single beer lover or curious beginner.
To develop this list, VinePair recognized the premier stouts in each state with a minimum of 100 user rankings on Beer Advocate, with the exception of Hawaii, North Dakota, and South Dakota, none of which produce a stout with a minimum of 100 votes– and no surprise: it’s hard to think of drinking a stout in bright Hawaii.
