    Well of course it's closed; how are they supposed to be opened when it burnt down?

    A bottle of Dark Lord has about 700 calories.

    True story.

    They said in order to fulfill more bottles, they weren't doing the variant pours.

    Where does it say that? All they said was this:

    It does not specifically say that variant pours will not be offered. Just that the brewpub will be closed. Sounds like Dark Lord and variant pours will be offered outside instead.

    it's one or the other... to me it sounds like pours outside or samples in line, or i think it would have said "bottles" or it at least wouldn't have said "everyone", but we are all just guessing so we should all just remind ourselves that none of us really know what we are talking about haha ;) see you all tonight/tomorrow!

    AAAH DLD always a surprise, with people freaking out. It will be awesome. Always is. If it isn't you are doing something wrong. They use to pour the BA DL outside. It was awesome.

    You used to be able to get BA vanilla dark lord outside for 5 bucks, those days are long gone.
