Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014. We've grown from our modest 6-beer list to a full 30+ beer, all weekend event complete with cellared favorites, special releases, and plenty of limited availability brews. We're talking all dark beer, all 4 days. If you haven't been, you're missing out. We plot and plan all year long so mark your calendars - we think the only reason you should travel in December is if you're coming here!
