New Year’s Eve, The Day After

Some nice things going on New Years Eve (at Ngon and Town Hall–others?), but what about the day after? Apparently, Al at the Blue Nile set aside a few–and by “few” I mean” five”–gallons of Darkness, plus some other yummy treats.  If you’re ready to drink by 6pm, you should head to east Franklin and check it out.  Over at BeerAdvocate, Al sez:

People have been asking when we’ll tap our 5 gallon keg of Surly Darkness at the Blue Nile. I’ve decided to start the New Year off right by tapping that keg at 6pm, Friday, January 1, 2010.

Also available on draft: Bell’s Expedition 2008, Founder’s Imperial Stout, Left Hand Fade to Black, Flat Earth Black Helicopter, Schell’s Snowstorm, Surly Smoke…and more…they won’t all be stouts or imperials, but they will be excellent.

hope to see you then,
