Somewhere in Indiana (ok, Munster for those of you with a map) there is a line. Today is 3 Floyd’s Brewing “Dark Lord Day.” Beer geeks/lovers/enthusiasts/psychos from all over vie for a bottle(s) of Dark Lord Imperial Stout, ranking among the best beers on planet earth.
In addition to grabbing a bottle of Dark Lord, the brewery has some rare variants available today. Those lucky enough to attend the event today got a “Golden Ticket.” Each ticket has a scratch off portion, much like a lottery ticket. If you win, you get a chance to purchase a barrel aged Dark Lord variant. The variants are:
Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord
Vanilla Bean Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord
Cognac Barrel Aged Dark Lord
Cognac Barrel Aged Dark Lord de Muerte (Aged w/ ancho and guajillo peppers)
Each bottle is waxed dipped, screen printed, and a whopping $50 dollars a bottle.
