The other day, I had the chance to try the Stonecutter Stout from Raccoon River Brewing, based in Des Moines, Iowa.  According to their website, it is named for “the stone masons who worked on the State Capitol, the Hotel Fort Des Moines, and many of the other historic buildings in Des Moines”.

The stout is a dry Irish stout, very similar to Guinness.  It has a slight sour taste, and finished clean.  It was very drinkable and  left a nice chocolate aftertaste.  Needless to say, it went down very smoothly.  It’s a great one to have on St. Patrick’s Day!
