Stout Bout is back in action for its 6th year, and it's taking place at our brand new Hi-Wire Brewing RAD Beer Garden at 284 Lyman Street, Asheville, NC 28801 on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 12 pm - 5 pm.


Stout Bout blends a traditional beer festival with a blind tasting. From 12:00pm-3:00 pm attendees will be able to taste as many beers as they wish ($3/4oz sample) and cast a vote for their top two favorite stouts. At 3:00 pm voting will close, and at 3:30 pm winners will be announced and all beers will be revealed to attendees. If there is beer left, full pours will be made available to customers for purchase.


Pre-sale entry is $12 online ($16 at the door) and includes two beer tokens and a commemorative tasting glass. Additional beer tokens will be $3 each. One token is equivalent to one 4oz pour, and two tokens can be redeemed for an 8-10oz full pour after the winners are announced, if supplies last.

While we love puppers and kiddos, this festival is for humans ages 21+.
