3 Floyds Brewing Co. has announced it is postponing Dark Lord Day 2020 and ticket sales “until further notice” due to concerns over the coronavirus.

The annual event was originally scheduled to take place on May 16 at the brewery located in Munster, Ind. and has historically been the only place where people can get bottles of Dark Lord, a 15 percent ABV Russian imperial stout brewed with coffee, Indian sugar and Mexican vanilla.

“With the current state of the COVID-19 situation and regulations put out by the state of Indiana, Dark Lord Day and all ticket sales will be postponed until further notice,” reads a statement on 3 Floyd’s Instagram page. “Stay safe, and we hope to see you all very soon.”

This is the third major beer event to be canceled or postponed in as many days due to the coronavirus, after Prairie Artisan Ales announced on Wednesday that it would be rescheduling its Little Festival on the Prairie event from its original date of April 18 to Oct. 17, 2020, and Cigar City Brewing canceled Hunahpu’s Day 2020.

According to 3 Floyd’s, a new date has yet to be chosen for Dark Lord Day 2020, but the brewery would share any information as soon as they have it.

I have been drinking craft beer in various incarnations for about seven years. I shoot and edit many of the sites, assist in staff management, cover news and assist in running Tenemu's social media accounts. My focus is on reviewing stouts, gose, lambics, fruit, and smoked beers, although I also enjoy quite a few hours and some IPAs when not reviewing. In what little free time I have, I enjoy smoking cigars, photographing various art projects, and pretending that I can cook something edible.
