Beer of the Week: Right Brain Brewery’s CEO Stout

This week’s Beer of the Week comes from Right Brain Brewery in Traverse City, MichiganCEO Stout

Beyond the plethora of board games Right Brain offers patrons in their Northern Michigan brewery, a sea of delicious beers are served to warm your belly.

Right Brain’s Chocolate Espresso Oatmeal (CEO) Stout is so rich and full of chocolately goodness that it’s comfort in a pint glass. Or a 22 oz bottle… or a can! Yes! They have begun canning this delicious coffee stout!

Right Brain’s CEO Stout is one of my favorites this time of year. Dismiss the notion that stouts are heavy and high in calories. Sure, the locally roasted espresso, chocolate and a sweet vanilla finish may TASTE like this beer contains a gazillion calories, but stouts are actually lower in calories than many IPAs. With a 5.5% ABV, the calorie content of RBB’s CEO Stout is around 150 calories for a 12oz pour. WIN!

At the moment, you can only purchase Right Brain’s CEO Stout in Michigan, but here is a distribution map for your enjoyment.

What are you drinking to keep warm this week?

If you have a suggestion for a beer I MUST try in the coming weeks, please email me: MommaNeedsABeer {at} gmail {dot} com with the subject Beer of the Week. Although I adore having access to many delicious Michigan beers, I’d love to expand my palate to beers with broader availability. If I choose to feature your beer, I will send you a MNAB magnet and mention you on here as well as facebook and twitter, if you’re into such things.

    I loved this when I tried it! We are going to our local taproom tomorrow on a date and I’m excited to try more Michigan craft beers and pretend it is not snowy outside!

Ok, ok, so I spill my beer, but my floors have never been more germ-free since I started putting a little alcohol on them. Who needs ammonia...
