@3Floyds Dark Lord Photo Set part 1.
Dark Lord is not only a celebration of the release of one of the most sought after craft beers in America. It is also a place where people from all over the country gather to share and trade beer, exchange stories, and become fast friends.
My brother and I had group E tickets, courtesy of my friends Nikko and Felicia (seen above), which meant we weren’t lining up for our beer until 5:30pm. When did we arrive? 8am. Half the fun of the day is that period standing in line with total strangers, sharing some of the best brews you were able to bring. Luckily my brother lives in CA, so he brought a couple of Russian River growlers. Nothing like fresh Pliny in the morning!
The wax tipped bottle was B.A. Topless Wytch, a very tasty baltic porter. The guy with the giant stein was just some random dude in line that let me take his picture. Look at the size of that thing! (that’s what she said)
Part 2 coming soon.
Just got some brews in and decided to break into this new release from Russian River.
A 100% simcoe pale ale with a delightfully citrusy aroma, Row 2 Hill 55 is a delectable ale with just the right amount of bitterness. Definitely something I could drink a few of. And I shall!
Looking forward to the rest of the Hop Grower’s Series.
