2019 Dark Charge Day

December 7, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 11:59 pm

Dark Charge Day celebrates the craft and Kentucky tradition of barrel-aged beer. Join us on Saturday, December 7th for the return of Dark Charge!

2018 was a big year for Dark Charge. We introduced a brand new VIP experience, sold more bottles than ever, and hosted the largest Winter Block Party that 7th street has ever seen. This year, as always, we’re striving to improve the Dark Charge Day experience.

So, what’s the scoop on this year’s Dark Charge Day?

As you’ve come to expect, Dark Charge Day will feature the release of our biggest beer of the year. Dark Charge Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Plus live music, local food, and plenty of fun to be had.

––– LOCAL FOOD –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––
This year, we’re teaming up again with our favorite local restaurants and eateries to bring you Dark Charge inspired fare. Each dish from our food partners will be creatively made with Dark Charge as an ingredient!
