Brewed with monk fruit and soursop, this beer pours a brilliant blonde, with a fluffy, white head. Earthy and tropical tones carry the aroma and the taste follows accordingly. Rolle [...]

I heard stories during this year’s DLD fest that the entire crowd of the first event fit inside the brewery. The video below is of the second celebration in 2005. I was surprised but glad to see Benny, Bill’s friend, in this very early DLD video. Three Floyds’ second Dark Lord Day in Munster, Indiana. [...]

It was the best of times, it was the best of times. Our entourage has finally returned home safely, a little achy and still a bit groggy from Dark Lord Day down in Munster. The weather turned out to be absolutely gorgeous with sunny clear skies, a nice breeze and temps in the low 70s. [...]
