Now that we’ve had a chance to tidy the brewery back up, catch our breath, and our heads have stopped spinning from Saturday, we want to thank everyone for coming to this year’s Dark Lord Day. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and it looks like all of you had as much fun as we did. There are still some small tweaks to be made but we think that you’ll agree that things worked out pretty well overall this year. Thank yous go out to all of the attendees who kept it a safe and positive beer experience, all the breweries who sent guest beers, Bloodiest, Lair of the Minotaur, Sweet Cobra, Pig Destroyer, Municipal Waste, High on Fire, the Town of Munster, our organizational partners, and the tireless efforts and countless hours that our employees put into organizing such an overwhelming endeavor. We look forward to next year and we hope you do too!
We’re donating 2 pairs of Dark Lord Day tickets to benefit the Irving Park YMCA. You can bid on them here:

Congratulations is in order for Hill Farmstead Brewery in Vermont for seizing the number 1 spot on RateBeer’s annual Best Brewers in the World List. We had been on top for a number of years, but Hill Farmstead has been steadily climbing the list and is now the best brewery in the world.
(our standings for the last few years) 2006: #2, 2007: #1, 2008: #2, 2009: #1, 2010: #1, 2011: #1, 2012: #1, 2013: #2
Wear the mantle well my friends, for it is a heavy burden carrying such a title. Cheers guys, and congrats.
“Weekend trips, office parties, late night conversations, drinking on the job, marriage pressure, biological clocks, holding eye contact a second too long… you know what makes the line between “friends” and “more than friends” really blurry? Beer.”
and from the SXSW synopsis:
KATE (Olivia Wilde) and LUKE (Jake Johnson) are two beer geeks who work in a Chicago brewery, where they spend all day flirting and drinking. They’re perfect for each other… except that they’re both in committed relationships. Jake and his schoolteacher girlfriend, JILL (Anna Kendrick) are entering the ”should we get married?” phase of their relationship, while Kate is playing it cool with her older, music producer boyfriend, CHRIS (Ron Livingston). When Kate and Luke unexpectedly find themselves alone together for a summer weekend, the beer starts flowing, and suddenly the line between “friends” and “more than friends” starts to get very blurry.
Joe is a longtime friend of our brewery production manager, Andrew Mason, who acted as brewery consultant for the film. Olivia and Jake came down to Munster to get a hands on feel for what it’s like to work in a growing regional brewery. In addition to hanging out with us, large portions of the film were shot at Revolution’s production brewery. Look for beers from us, Revolution, Half Acre, Bells, and Founders to be featured in the film. We’re pretty excited to see how it turns out.
