We now know when tickets to 3 Floyds Brewery’s Dark Lord Day 2019 will go on sale: March 23.
The annual event taking place on May 18 is 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.

As was the case last year, attendees who pay the $180 for entrance to the event—which is held at the brewery—will receive four 22-ounce bottles of 2019 Dark Lord as well as a “rare 2019 Dark Lord variant” included in each pre-packaged bag that were handed to each person at random. Last year, those variants included beers like Marshmallow Handle, Dia Oscuro and French Vanilla Militia.
In addition to the five beers, the $180 fee will include a branded tote bag, entrance to a “metal show” and entrance to the festival itself where more than 50 different breweries will be pouring beers on draft for attendees.
Update (March 15, 2019) — This post was updated to include details on the release and entrance fee information. It was originally published on Jan. 15, 2019.
