Gerry Dog Stout
(Big Elm Brewing Company)

Gerry Dog Stout is one of three beers currently being canned by Big Elm Brewing Company. The brewery is tucked away in a small town in the far southwestern corner of Massachusetts and also brews an array of beers that are available on tap locally. 

From the Big Elm Brewing site:

“Our rich and satisfying Oatmeal Stout is made with choice American and English barley, rolled oats, herbal American hops and good vibes from our brewery mascot Gerry. This deep and dark beverage transcends what you thought about stout! - Slainte!”

Here we go...


Pour - inky black with a head of thick, beige foam. It wouldn't be a stout if it didn't look like this...


Aroma - Roasted, toasted malts, some sweet caramel notes, cocoa, chocolate, and espresso. Very enticing on a cold fall day.


Taste -  Gerry Dog is a medium-bodied stout with ample chocolate and coffee flavors.  There is some definite sweetness comign from all those rich, dark malts and the rolled oats add a nice depth to the mouthfeel.


Overall - A semi-sweet, rich, and flavorful oatmeal stout with plenty of dark roasted chocolate flavors. This is one that you'll be happy ordering a few times during the night.


Note -  Big Elm Brewing Company was founded by husband and wife, Bill and Christine Heaton. The two actually met at Victory Brewing Company back in 2003 and opened a brewpub in Pittsfield, MA called Pittsfield Brew Works in 2005. After 5 years of running a restaurant and a small brewery the two decided to move on and open a production brewery. After a lot of planning and searching, Big Elm began brewing in Sheffield, MA in the fall of 2012.
