Cheers to More Darkness Day Beers

Every year, we look at ways to make the great Darkness Day (Sept. 27 & 28, Somerset, WI, tickets here) experience even greater. Never too much of a good thing and all that.

One of the ways we’re doing that this year: More packaged beer. Many of you understandably hold onto your Darkness and variant bottles for special occasions, cellaring, verticals, etc. In 2019, we’ll also offer three different 4-packs of 16 oz. cans for you to enjoy on the spot or bring home. All three beers will be available for purchase on Friday and Saturday ONLY, with some limited draft availability if you’d like to give them a test drive. These beers aren’t going to distribution and will be unattainable outside the event.

But enough about the rules, man. What about the beers?

  • At The End Of The Internet. A double dry-hopped, hazy double IPA brewed with El Dorado, Simcoe, and Citra hops. 10% ABV.
  • Campground Beer. A straight-up, easy-drinking pilsner. 5.2% ABV.
  • None More Black. An imperial kettle sour brewed with black currants and blackberries. 9.4% ABV.

Think of these like a Spring Break souvenir, only they’re so much better than a shot glass with a frog on it and your name misspelled.

A full rundown of all the beers we’re bringing will be available shortly after Labor Day, along with the final list of guest breweries and beers at Friday’s Dawn of Darkness Beer Festival.

Minnesota’s first double IPA is back. Abrasive takes its name from Sparky Abrasives, the original occupant of our original Brooklyn Center location. Fueled by a mountain of Citra hops, Abrasive centers aggressive notes of tropical fruit and a bracing bitterness, all offset by a remarkably smooth finish that belies its double IPA strength. Not only … Continued
