If you want to get your claws on Darkness, our Russian Imperial Stout, join the frenzied, thirsty horde at our brewery for Darkness Day.

Everyone will be ID'd prior to entering the gates. If you are NOT 21, you MUST be accompanied by a parent.

We will be handing out 1200 wristbands for Darkness. Each person with a wristband will be allowed to purchase up to six 750ml bottles of Darkness for $18 each, CASH ONLY. Those who did not receive a wristband will be able to buy up to four bottles of Darkness starting at 4:00pm (while quantities last).

Bottles of Darkness will hit the liquor stores starting 10/31.

Beer will be poured in several locations around the brewery grounds. Beer Tokens are $4 for a 12 oz pour, CASH ONLY. The following Surly beers can be found at the beer trailers and in the Tap Room: Moe's Bender, Coffee Bender, Bender, Furious, Cynic, Hell, Darkness and Damien. All cask pouring will be under the BIG tent.

What is Damien you ask? Here's the official description from Todd Haug, Surly's head brewer: From the blackest depths of the brewhouse comes Damien, Child of Darkness. Spawned from the usually discarded remnants of Darkness, Damien is a dry-hopped black ale. Flavors of roasted malt and dark brown sugar suffocated by aromas of tangerine and pine. 35 IBUs, 5% ABV.

We'll have food vendors (The Chef Shack, Play Ball Catering, Natedogs, and Potter's Pasties and Pies) to keep you nourished, bike parking for those who demand it, and an ATM or two in case you need cash.

Hang out with us through the afternoon and enjoy beer, food, and live music from: God Came From Space, Guzzlemug, Droids Attack, and Ambassador Gun.

Darkness chalices, posters, and shirts, as well as other Surly swag will be available for purchase.

Lastly, cutting in line and saving spots are not tolerated, so don't do it!
