All day, they will be serving up their darkest beers: from Porters & Stouts to Black IPAs and experimental styles. Crowd favorites like KBS, CBS, Project Pam, Breakfast Stout, Imperial Stout, Porter, Dark Penance, Oatmeal Stout & Frangelic Stout will be representing, along with firkins and some brewed just for the event. The Deli will be serving up its famed Dirty Bastard Bratwurst as well as some tasty vittles just for the day. AND as always, there’s an incredible lineup of live music beginning at 5pm, with this year’s festivities headlined by Brooklyn, New York’s EMEFE.


Admission is $10 for the General Public and $8 for 2016 Mug Club Members. Your paid admission nets you access to the event and all of the entertainment, as well as a one-of-a-kind commemorative Black Party Pint Glass AND your first pint of any Class 1 beer. (There are no advance tickets for the event, just cover at the door.)
