Surly has some info on this years Darkness Day (the release of Darkness) on 10/27/12….
Darkness Bottles Info:
The 1st 800 people in line when we open the gates at noon on Saturday will get an orange wristband. If you have an orange wristband, you can purchase up to 6 bottles of Darkness. CASH ONLY — $18 each. You must buy your bottles before 6:00, if you do not, you lose your allocated bottles. NO EXCEPTIONS! You can purchase your bottles at any time between 12:00 and 6:00. There is no place to store them at the brewery.
Brooklyn Center Liquor stores have helped us out today & they are selling the beer. THEY WILL NOT SELL BOTTLES TO PEOPLE THAT ARE DRUNK!!! It’s the law for liquor stores. Please plan accordingly.
You need a token to get a beer. Tokens are $4 each. We will be pouring beer from 12:00-5:30. Glasses are 12 ounces. Don’t be stupid – we reserve the right to kick you out if you’re being a dick (or any other reason we find). Respect the volunteers, employees and security staff.
Please take a cab home if you need to!
The neighbors at Surly have been gracious to let us use their parking lots for you folk. Don’t make a mess. If you need to leave your car here Saturday night, no problem. Please have your car removed by Monday morning or it might be towed. Caribou Coffee has allowed us to use their lot for parking also. They are located at Hwy 100 & France Ave.
Gates open at noon. We will hand out the orange/Darkness wristbands just before the gates open. For those in line, please don’t hold spots or let people in line. You can leave the brewery and return. You must keep on your wrist bands. Gates close at 6:30. Please be prepared to leave and don’t make us kick you out. Staff and volunteers have been here all day and want to go home.
