Darkness yanked from eBay

Another Darkness post! eBay pulled the plug on 5 out of the 6 auctions for Surly Darkness. One would guess that someone complained that the auction was a violation of eBay’s terms of service and the auctions got yanked. In any case, there’s one left on eBay. If you have some extra coin that you want to throw at charity in exchange for a bottle of Darkness and a great screenprinted poster from Adam Turman, go for it. Much too rich for my blood (and I have three bottles of Darkness at my house anyway), but perhaps it’ll make someone’s day.

    Did the other auctions have the disclaimer on them? I’ve seen other beers sold on Ebay but each one you are technically buying the bottle and not the beer.

  2. Trav says:

    I dont recall all of them having the disclaimer, but i know more then the one left had it.

  3. Don says:

    The ones I looked at (like Trav said, for sure more than one) had the “this is sold due to its collectible nature… the contents are not intended for consumption” type of disclaimer. I am surprised they were not all pulled as they were very similar. As of 12:15 the last one is still up. Weird.

    With that listing, I bet it won’t last… no disclaimer…

  5. Eric says:

    Winning bid: $406. Yikes!

  6. Trav says:

    Wonder if the final price is super high just because it goes to charity, so because people are totally f’in crazy? darkness is damn good, but probably not 406 dollars good. well, maybe it is.

    I’ve got to imagine a number of agencies (federal, state, and local) get worked up over things like this. Can you see CNN interruping normal coverage for Breaking News. Pan to an image from a chopper of an army of ATF agents shooting tear-gas into Eric’s house in a very David-Koresh-Stand-off type fashion, followed by his made dash out a back window and down an alley while chugging from a bomber. GIve it time.

    Why not have a silent auction for the bottles taken off Ebay? Give the proceeds to charity.
    Have it at Surly, since it appears that they throw one hell of a party.

  9. surlybrewer says:

    The bottles that Ebay removed(verbage issues)are either back or soon to be…

    Don’t believe the hype StuBob,you didn’t miss anything at the party.

  10. skypilot says:

    I don’t believe in hype.
    Videos looked cool though.

  11. Ben says:

    “Videos looked cool though.”

    Yeah they had to be edited to remove the strippers, cotton candy, and pony rides.

  12. skypilot says:

    …and lagers too?

  13. ryan says:

    Yeah, you missed out skypilot.

    I can’t believe Ben forgot to mention that they were handing out $10s and $20s at the gate, too. They sent us all home with a keg of Two as well.

  14. skypilot says:

    I’m pretty much banned from Surly so I missed out on the monopoly money…damn!
    A keg of Two Hearted?!?!?!?!?


  15. ryan says:

    Surly Two, limited edition mini-keg encrusted in diamonds and gold. Free crunk cup, too. You missed out man.

    Guess we’ll just have to wait for the next beer event to see Todd crack you over the head with a growler again?

  16. skypilot says:

    Todd can’t reach that high.

  17. hopdragon says:

    Actually Todd won’t stoop that low.

  18. skypilot says:

    I knew you’d show that picture!!!!

    OOOO!!! that Cantillon was best of the ABR!!!

  19. al says:

    Todd makes a hell of a lager…calls it Smoke!
