Oggi’s October Beer of the Month


Did we scare you? Probably not, but Halloween is coming up. Children and adults decked out in costumes, horror movies, candy and beer (yes, beer!) make for a bone-chilling October.

This month’s selection, the Black Magic Stout, is the potion you need while you carve those jack-o-laterns. The Black Magic Stout is a full-bodied, dark brew that’s rich and malty with plenty of roasted barley character and has plenty of coffee, chocolate and roasted barley flavoring. Its four medals (Gold Medal 2010 World Beer Cup, Silver Medal 2006 Great American Beer Festival, Silver Medal 2005 Great American Beer Festival, and Bronze Medal 2004 World Beer Cup) speak volumes about the Black Magic’s hypnotizing qualities.

Go all out by pairing the Stout with our Heavyweight Pizza, and get ready for a fear and beer-filled month at Oggi’s!

Good times and great brews. Getting together.
