Beer Pick

Old 41 Oatmeal Stout

Dry County Brewing Co., Kennesaw

Available year-round on draft and in cans.


A Gold Medal winner at the 2018 World Beer Cup, Dry County’s Old 41 Oatmeal Stout recently became available in cans. Black in color with a frothy brown head, the aroma reveals roasted grains and hints of coffee. Roasted flavors follow, with some sweetness and nuttiness from the oats, along with a medium body and silky-smooth mouthfeel.

At just under 6 percent alcohol, this is not a big imperial stout, but rather a sessionable dark beer perfect for sipping in a pub on mild fall or cold winter evenings. 

Pair with

Oatmeal stout is an easy pairing with chocolate desserts, but also work well with roasted meats, barbecue and Mexican mole dishes.
