Date: Package sales August 17th. Pickup dates September 8th-10th.


On July 28th, the darklordday.com website was updated announcing package sales and pickup dates. This would again be a pickup only release without a festival. Also announced was the return of Dark Lord Day as a music festival in 2023. 2022 Packages will include a pre-sale code for Dark Lord Day 2023.

In addition to the 2022 packages, a Dark Lord vertical package including one bottle each of 2020, 2021, and 2022 Dark Lord will be available for $75. Packages are limit 2 each, for a total of 4 packages per customer.

Variants were announced on Monday, August 15th.

Tickets went on sale on Wednesday, August 17th at 7pm. There was a slight issue with the webstore at that time as it was showing no products available for sale. This was resolved about 20 minutes later and the sales proceeded without issue. Some people were able to find the direct URLs to the packages and place orders that way during the interim. The Thursday September 8 pickup slot sold out in a little under a day, showing sold out on Thursday afternoon (August 18th). The remaining packages were removed from the store on Saturday, August 20.

Notably, the word "Russian" was dropped from the description this year. No longer referring to it as a Russian Imperial Stout but simply an Imperial Stout. This was done in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine in early 2022. The Dark Lord label also featured a Ukrainian flag and the wax colors reflected the colors on the Ukrainian flag as well.


No festival was held this year.
