Surly brews and artists to take over Uptown Tavern at Darkness party [IMAGES]
Josh Lemke Surly Darkness 2013
Surly fans will have another chance to revel in Darkness this winter. On December 15, just a few days shy of winter solstice, Surly will take over the taps at Uptown Tavern, offering 15 different taps and an opportunity to meet all seven local artists who have decorated the Russian Imperial Stout's labels since 2007. Uptown Tavern will "black out" the bar and decorate with low-lit candles to create a unique and fitting ambiance.
Beer lovers at Surly Darkness Day 2013
Among the beer offerings will be Darkness 2013, Darkness 2012, Smoke, and Pentagram 2012 Vintage. The event was coordinated by the brewery and 2013's artist, Josh Lemke. Lemke, Bren Schoonover, Michael Berglund, Aesthetic Apparatus, DWITT, Nic Skrade, and Adam Turman will all be on hand, signing and selling their wares. The artists "know good beer," summarizes Surly sales manager Corey Shovein, "so why not get them together and drink some?"
Surly is also hosting a release party for Smoke this Tuesday at Market-Bar-B-Que.
