Fun fact - they literally adopted the name after watching that bit.
Anyone sitting in a quiet bar drinking this and not telling anyone? Anyone have insight into any bars getting a keg?
As someone who has no inside info on any bars getting Darkness this year: enjoy your Darkness in peace, everyone.
I am pretty sure it is in fact not being distributed to Chicago this year for whatever reason. It is usually here by now.
Bavarian Lodge said they did not get a keg of Darkness this year (like everywhere else), and they have gotten a keg of it every year before? So, not sure why Surly wouldn't send kegs this year? I think it is odd considering once their new brewery is up and running (hopefully sometime before 2030) they would start distributing in IL!
I keed, I keed. I was kind of surprised that there *were* kegs of Darkness here the past couple years, since Surly *doesn't* distribute here. So it was a pleasant surprise, and not to be expected every year, no?
This is bad news indeed. I always thought it was cool of Surly to hook up the Chicago market with a healthy amount of Darkness tappings (unlike FFF has done w/ Dark Lord*).
* Props to FFF for the post-FOBAB Vanilla BA Dark Lord tapping in Chicago
It's on tap in my apartment, but only because I have a metric fuckton. It's the only beer I have more than 6 of in the cellar thats not named Bourbon County Stout.
So you mean I'm now following dontcounttoday for no reason? Sonofa...
