We promised not to host another Darkness Day until we could sell bottles ourselves. Well, the time has come, the laws have changed, and we’re planning a party for the ages. Celebrate this year’s Darkness release with a full day of FREE live music, plus activities, tastings, special releases, and a surprise or two along the way.
The OG cult classics are coming back: Wet, Fiery Hell, One Man Mosh Pit, and 16 Grit. Catch timed tappings throughout the day of rare offerings, exciting sneak peeks, Surly staples, and a myriad of vintage Darkness.
