For those who don't know, Friday April 29th was the release date for Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout at Three Floyds Brewing Co. in Munster, Indiana. This beer is the best beer I have ever had (yes, it's that good) and is very, very, very hard to get. The numbers vary, but this year they only bottled 850 to 1500 bottles depending on who you ask and it is only sold at the brewery. All of it was gone from the brewery by Saturday. But with a huge stroke of luck I found a liquor store in Chicago that went to brewery and bought a few cases of Dark Lord to sell to folks who couldn't be there. And they agreed to ship me 4 bottles of this amazing brew! 4 bottles!
The 3Floyds website is kind of late since they don't even have the release date up there, but you can read more about the beer here:
Here's the wonderful liquor store who gets mad respect from me for sharing the love and being really cool to talk to:
And of course a look at the BeerAdvocate top 100 shows that the Dark Lord is #2. A fine brew is on it's way to me. I can't wait until Thursday!
Oh, and DF, you're off the hook since I found this liquor store to hook me up!
