Tips for a successful DLD ticket purchase
1) Bookmark our Facebook page, Twitter, and appropriate Beer Advocate and Ratebeer forums ahead of time. The link to tickets will be cross posted across the internet, not only on Darklordday.com. The ticketing site we are using should not be affected by the volume of people trying to buy tickets but our own sites may.
2) When buying tickets, make sure you enter your shipping address correctly. Double, triple, or quadruple check. Tickets are going through a third party this year, so if you make a mistake, we will not be able to help you like in years past.
3) Tickets go on sale at 1 p.m. CDT on Saturday March 19th. Two tickets maximum per person.
4) Your ticket is your admission to the grounds. Beer allocations will be on a per person basis. Holding two tickets in your hand will not give you two allotments of Dark Lord.
5) All tickets are good for general admission. Your ticket will have an A, B, or C sales time assigned to it. Group A will be from 10am to noon. B will be 1 to 3. And C will be 5 to 7. This will hopefully cut down on the time everyone has to spend in line.
This is still Dark Lord Day. We're looking forward to all of the beers that people bring to trade, the awesome lineup of bands, the ultimately unique experience that Dark Lord Day is and has become. The guest draft list is coming together nicely, food preparations and planning are at full speed, there is even a Czar of porto-potties this year. Good Luck Saturday and we look forward to seeing you April 30th.
April 30 will be the day Three Floyds puts its famed Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout up for sale at the brewery and pub, 9750 Indiana Parkway, in Munster, Indiana. In just a few years, the sale date for this 15% abv brew, made with coffee and cholocate, has grown from a few dozen fans to nearly 12,000 people. Even those who could not get the beer came to celebrate by trading and tasting beers brought in from all over the world. The crowd has overwhlemed the commercial block where Three Floyds is located, so in the interest of public safety, only those who have a ticket will be allowed onto the brewery property. The local people will be asking those loitering outside the grounds to move on.
