One of the biggest events for 3 Floyds Brewing Co. next year now has a date.
The Munster, Ind.-based brewery has announced that Dark Lord Day 2019 will be held on Saturday, May 18.
The annual event has historically been the only place where people can get bottles of Dark Lord, a 15 percent ABV Russian imperial stout that is brewed with coffee, Indian sugar and Mexican vanilla. The stout was first brewed in 2002, but was not packaged in bottles until 2004, with the first Dark Lord Day taking place in 2005.

Next year will mark the 14th time Dark Lord Day has taken place, although the majority of those years the event was held in April.
This year’s festival was held on May 19 and was the third year that the brewery charged a flat fee instead of a la carte pricing.
Attendees paid $180 for entrance to the event—which is held at the brewery—a branded tote bag, four 22-ounce bottles of Dark Lord 2018 and one bottle of a rare Dark Lord variant, which included releases like Marshmallow Handjee, Chemtrailmix and French Vanilla Militia.
