foda_blog_2015

Dark times mean dark beers. And there is no darker place than Fort George Brewery during Stout Month (AKA February). Every year the taps in Astoria pour black with new stout releases each week, anchored by the largest single-day stout fest in the world – the Festival of Dark Arts.

Tickets to the Festival of Darks Arts go on sale Tuesday, November 29th, the darkest day of the month. Those bearers will be granted entrance on Saturday, February 18th into a magical menagerie of dark art and macabre entertainment, all the while surrounded by the boldest collection of stouts ever assembled in one place. You’ll be amazed by iron, glass, ice, and chainsaw craftspeople. Live music, art, and artists will delight you. And over 60 rare and unique stouts will tempt all of your senses.

For more information and a link to tickets go to www.festivalofdarkarts.com. Entertainment and stout details will be added as they are confirmed. General admission tickets are all $40. A limited number of early entry tickets are available for $55, which will allow you into the festival starting at noon. All ticket holders will receive a Festival of Dark Arts Grimoire, a 2017 festival glass, and twelve drink tokens. Additional tokens will be for sale at the festival. You must be 21+ to attend this year.

In an effort to maintain the intimacy of the event, tickets are limited. However, the North Coast will be filled to the brim. Buy your tickets and book your hotel rooms early, then prepare your palate for the overwhelming essence of Stout Month.
