In case you were thinking about sacrificing beer in an effort to cut carbs or deny yourself happiness, I suggest you put off your noble obligation for one more week.

McCoy’s taps its latest brew tonight — McCoy’s Oatmeal Stout with chipotle peppers and cinnamon. It’s over 6 percent ABV, but McCoy’s maintains that it’s a “drinkable smooth stout, with a little bite.”

It’s Sour Beer Week at the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium. Tonight is Brett Night with Odell Saboteur, Stillwater Premium, and Evil Twin Femme Fatale and Ron & the Beast Ryan all slated to be tapped [h/t to KC Beer Blog].

Founders Breakfast Stout 2011 is on tap at Waldo Pizza (7433 Broadway). It’s a Coffee Imperial Stout — one of few beers that can claim to wake you up and knock you over at the same time. Bear Republic’s Racer 5 IPA is worthy of your glass at Grinders (417 E. 18th St.).
