Win a Darkness Day Variant Package

Want to win a Darkness Day Variant package? Here’s how:

This one is for the Darkness Day vets. Have a great photo from past Darkness Days? A picture that represents the weird, wild spirit of the whole thing?

Please send it to us via Instagram or Twitter (@surlybrewing) by Friday, July 13.

Tag it with #surlydarknessday so we know it’s real.

A select group of Darkness Day vets will choose the best one.

If that best one belongs to you, you will get:

  • One bottle of each Darkness variant
  • Three bottles of 2018 Darkness
  • Four beer tokens to use at Darkness Day
  • Two nights of camping at the Somerset Amphitheater

That’s a $200 value. Which is pretty cool.
