Darkest Day Celebration

Dec. 19
3 p.m.-12 a.m.
Barhopping, Food and Drink

Hazy beers might be all the rage, but pitch-black beers are just as cool. With Winter Solstice upon us, it’s time to appreciate dark-hued pints one beer at a time. This annual celebration emphasizes imperial stouts and porters, but it’s not just for beer drinkers and sun-haters, as a number of specialty bourbons will also be served. With 30 dedicated tap lines, expect a lot of heavy, boozy beers, including cellared Bourbon County, plus local favorites like Darkness, Silhouette, Rum King, Whiskey War & Peace, and Gravity Well. Need something heavier? Bourbons from Pappy Van Winkle and Buffalo Trace are also available. Sunset is at 4:33. Embrace the darkness.
