Do You Need Some Darkness?

The Blue Door Pub will be tapping their keg of Surly Darkness on Dec. 21st, the shortest day of the year, at 11:00am. Whenever that keg is finished, they’ll tap Surly Smoke. Enjoy.


  1. Matt says:

    Wouldn’t that be the shortest day of the year?

  2. Ben says:

    I believe you’re right Matt. Unless they’re talking longest night of the year which would make more sense along with the name Darkness.

  3. ryan says:

    Sorry, typing too fast. Yes, shortest day…

  4. Jason says:

    Huh, and here I thought every day was 24 hours long. Are some longer and some shorter???

  5. al says:

    I believe we are only counting daylight hours on that particular day.

  6. Brazzle Boykins says:

    Well, sometimes they add a leap second into the mix every once in a while, like on Dec. 31st this year. Damn tidal friction!

    Then there’s the matter of whether you are referring to a solar day or a sidereal day, but… that’s not interesting at all compared to Darkness on tap. Sweet!

  7. Cecil says:

    Not that it matters, but I thought bars could not serve before noon on Sunday. Maybe that’s just a local/city law.

  8. Kris says:

    I think the noon serving time on Sunday is a city thing, not county or state. The only place I’ve not been served before noon on a Sunday before was Edina, a few years back.
