During the darkest time of year...
DECEMBER 14 - 17, 2023
10AM - 12AM
ALL DARK BEER
ALL 4 DAYS
30 + DIFFERENT BEERS
The 2023 DATES ARE ALREADY SET - MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Our biggest and most awaited event of the year, this 4 day festival fills the taproom with beer lovers and flight boards abound!
Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014 and has grown from a modest 6-beer list to a full 30+ beer, multi-day event complete with cellared favorites, special releases, and plenty of limited availability brews. We're talking all dark beer, all weekend, with styles changing each day. Bring your growlers too - all of these exclusive beers are available for growler fills! 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 this December is if you're coming here! Here are some of this year’s highlights:
ANNUAL DARK BEER COLLABORATION! - Every year we partner with a different local brewery to bring you a new and exciting dark beer made exclusively for this event.
DARK CIDER! - We partner with a local cidery to craft a "dark" cider exclusively for this event!
10AM EARLY OPEN + DONUTS! Now an annual tradition (because who doesn’t love donuts and dark beer), we open at 10AM each day with FREE donuts (while supplies last) for the early risers! Many of the beers are limited and may only last one day so come early and get that special dark beer you've been waiting for!
