The weather is getting colder, and for us beer drinkers, you know what that means: away with the those too light hefes and IPAs, and in with the stouts and porters so thick you could cut them with a knife. If dark heavy beers are your thing, check out Tucson Stout Showdown at Tap and Bottle (403 N. Sixth Ave. #135) this Thursday, Nov. 5. Sample a blind taste testing flight of stouts from local Tucson breweries 1912, Barrio, Thunder Canyon, Public, Iron John's and Pueblo Vida. You might just find your new favorite beer.
