Yeah, yeah, it’s another event still four months away, but you better get it on your calendar now.
Seeing that Darkness Day was just announced, naturally, Jon over at Stub and Herb’s announced his tentative plans for the 3rd Annual Darkness Eve Party and Beer Swap.
It has been announced that Surly Brewing will be doing their yearly release of Darkness on 10-23-10. That means that 10-22 is the 3rd annual Darkness Eve at Stub and Herb’s!

From Surly Brewing:
And, the special Midnight tapping is expected to be a firkin of 2010 Oak-Aged Surly Darkness.
That is all you get to know about for now. However, I have quite a few more goodies in my cooler to make that night special.
We are looking to make this event bigger than ever! Make plans to join us for live music, prizes, fun and some really big beers! See you then!
