We’d like to thank everyone who came out to Victory to celebrate Dark Wednesday with us. The line of Dark Intrigue enthusiasts started to form at 6:30 a.m. One of our earliest liner-uppers left Richmond, Virginia at 3:00 a.m. to secure his place. One beer-loving duo stayed up all night, drove from near New York City and arrived in Downingtown at 4:30 a.m. They slept in their car until another early-riser woke them up at 6:30 a.m. and ended up second and third in line. Still others traveled from North Carolina, Oklahoma and Colorado.

We had a great time talking with all of our beer-loving travelers and with the more than 400 avid beer fans who celebrated the release of Dark Intrigue with us. Despite a few scattered showers, hundreds of people joined in the Dark Wednesday festivities. Thanks to our friends at One Village, we were able to keep them warm with free coffee. And our own Victory Brewpub provided some tasty treats to enjoy as we all waited for sales to begin. The doors opened promptly at 11:30 a.m., and by 2:30 p.m. all the cases of Dark Intrigue were all gone.

The brewery allotment of Dark Intrigue sold out in just three hours, but more cases are leaving the brewery on trucks today, headed to 18 states across the country. If you’re looking to give the bourbon barrel-aged Storm King Stout a taste, contact your local wholesaler or use our beerfinder. DISCLAIMER: Beerfinder only reports on where the beer has been delivered in the past 60 days. If you see Dark Intrigue listed at your local retailer, call them to ensure they haven’t sold out yet.
And to those of you who came out and waited for Dark Intrigue, thank you again for helping us to make such a successful, fun event. Cheers!
