Date: Package sales October 18th. Pickup dates November 11th-14th.

Overview

On August 25th, 2021. A teaser was posted to social media announcing that details would be coming in late September regarding the 2021 release of Dark Lord. The Dark Lord Day website was also updated with the same information.

On September 30th, 2021, the website was updated with package price & sales date announcement.

This year, as with 2020, will again be a curbside pickup format with no festival being held. Notably the packages include 2 Dark Lord variants this year, as opposed to one. Unlike 2020, proxies are allowed to pickup the packages in 2021.

Variants were announced on October 16th. There was a large reduction in the number of variants this year, down to just 3. However these included both Handjee and Chemtrailmix, which are often considered among the best variants from previous years. The third variant was created in honor of Barnaby Struve, former Brewmaster and Vice President at Three Floyds, who passed away in April 2021.

A couple hours into the last day of pickups, people reported only receiving totes containing Chemtrailmix and Adultsizedbeverage and hearing from staff that Handjee had run out that morning. This lead people to speculate that 3 Floyds had not evenly distributed the variants for each pickup day. However, others reported receiving Handjee later in the day on the last day of pickups.

Details

No festival will be held this year.
