X is for Extra Stout Beer

Source: Wikimedia Commons

Martha's Vineyard Extra Stout was a craft beer brewed on the island at Martha's Vineyard Breweries. Apparently it is now retired and the brewery itself is closed.

I don't even like stout beer and I know nothing about this brew, but we all know how hard it is to find a topic for the dreaded "X" post. So this is it for me. :D

Two more letters to go!



My A-Z of Martha's Vineyard theme is inspired by my book, The Ghosts of Aquinnah, which is set on the island. Click here for all the info on the book.

  4. That beer is so dark it looks like cola. I don't like beer at all - so bitter - but I like wine. Why doesn't the "Vineyard" have a winery? O_o

  5. Not much of a beer drinker. I like the occasional dark beer at a ball game. :)

  6. I'm not allowed any beer now never mind Extra Stout.
    I suspect many of us will bend the rules a bit to finish of 'X',

  15. Do you think Guinness and the extra stout could do battle? to find out which is stouter?
    Lived in Ireland; totally a Guinness fan. Even though I do not drink.

  16. I agree on all points. Beer not something I drink, X very hard letter to write with a theme especially.

    I love the cape and am glad I ran across your post.

  17. Hi Julie,

    Stout beer is like burnt toast soaked in water, evidently. My apologies to all Guinness drinkers!

  20. Well, at least this one likes a nice cold beer with a little sandwich on the terrace when it's hot. (The slice of bread looks delicious and hardy).

  21. I'm not a fan of beer in general, but my hubby enjoys it and would have probably liked that one.

  23. Hi Julie - that's a pity the brewery has closed .. it looks like a Guinness .. very rich - something I don't drink very often .. once every decade?! That glass looks good .. I'd better go and get myself a cup of tea!
