Dark Lord Day 2006
Date: April 29, 2006
Dark Lord Day 2006 was held on Saturday, April 29th. This year was more organized, with porta-johns, festival food, & picnic tables setup for bottle sharing. This was the first year Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Lord was available on tap (also referred to as Oak Aged Dark Lord). Three 1 liter swing-top bottles of 2005 Woodford Reserve Barrel Aged Dark Lord were raffled off, raffle tickets were $5 each. Reportedly only 12 bottles of the Barrel Aged Dark Lord were produced. This was the first year Dark Lord sold out in one day, selling out around 5:00pm. The line to purchase Dark Lord wrapped around the inside of the brewery.
Although the festival officially started at noon, the earliest festival goers arrived around 9:00am. They spent the morning bottle sharing until sales started.
This was the first year the brewpub was open for the event as it had just been completed earlier in the year.
