It's time for another installment of Beer with Bruce. In honor of the great beer holiday that is St. Patrick's Day, let's focus on stouts.
Before we delve into the murky blackness that is stout, let’s dip our toes in a definition… STOUT, adj. 1. courageous; brave; undaunted. 2. a) strong in body; sturdy. b) strong in construction; firm; substantial. 3. powerful; forceful. 4. fat; thickset; fleshy; corpulent. n. 1. A stout person. 2. A garment for a stout person. 3. strong, dark-brown beer, ale, or porter.
Stout, as a style of beer, is a wonderful and surprising mixture of several adjectives in our definition above. As alluded to, stouts are born out of porter. The creation of porter dates back to mid-17th century England, in step with the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.
These rich, cake-like brownies are sure to get you through the rest of winter!
The roasted barley and coffee notes of our new Signature Series Imperial Stout are accentuated in this recipe by the bittersweet chocolate and complimented by a little kick of cayenne on the finish of these decadent treats.

Ah!... Maine, the way life should be…. Maine, worth a visit, worth a lifetime. While this is undoubtedly true, not everyone can visit or stay a lifetime, so why not export some of Maine’s goodness across the state, the country, even around the globe? That’s exactly what Shipyard Brewing Company has done with Export Ale.
So what exactly is an export style ale? The answer is a little unclear.
