Surly Darkness Day is on the horizon
Surly Darkness is upon us
Surly fans are gathering. That rumble in the distance is their thirst for the beer that inspired devotion and outrageous prices : Darkness is upon us.
Last year hardcore beer fans began lining up by noon the day before the event, spending the October night in tents. This year organizers ask that fans respect their neighbors by waiting until 3:30 p.m. Friday night before setting up. Also, any tents will have to wait until nightfall. Volunteers will help manage the line, and they are are empowered to 86 anyone who doesn't follow the rules.
