2018 Dark Charge Day: Straight From the Barrel

We can’t wait for Dark Charge Day! It’s a celebration of barrel-aged beer featuring the annual release of our Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. You’ll be able to try each variant on draft and purchase bottles (while supplies last). But there’s one more way you can try 2018 Dark Charge … straight from the barrel!


In the heated tent on 7th street, we will have one Bourbon barrel of Dark Charge Imperial Stout that we have saved for you to taste straight from the source. That’s right, we’ll have a spicket tapped directly into the barrel and be pouring 5 oz. samples of Dark Charge straight from the barrel.

From 11a-10p on Saturday, December 1st we’ll be pouring these 5 oz. samples for $5. Members of our brewing team will be there to talk to you about the beer and the barrel-aging process. Before the beer is ever bottled, our brewers spend countless hours tasting and testing the aging beer straight from the barrel in the months leading up to bottling. And now, you’ll get to do this with them.

In addition, we’ll also have a specialty Dark Charge Taster & drink tickets special for you. For $20, you’ll receive a limited edition Dark Charge taster and three drink tickets to fill the 5 oz. taster with any beer at any draft location. If you run through your tickets, refills will be only $4!

But wait. There’s more

For $125, you can take home one of the Bourbon barrels that we aged Dark Charge in!

Do you love Dark Charge? Are you planning to take home bottles and glassware? Want to take home one more super limited piece of memorabilia? We’ll be selling the Bourbon Barrels that aged Dark Charge! For $125, you can reserve your barrel and we will arrange the pickup details with you for a later date. We do expect these to sell out during the day. Stop by the merch booth in the heated tent on 7th street to reserve your barrels while supplies last!

We can’t wait to #LiftOneToLife with you!
