Are you a fan of stouts, porters and their many extant variations? Do you only find satisfaction in the most rich, roasty obsidian-hued beers? While Stone has earned a reputation for brewing hop-forward IPAs, we've always had a deep appreciation for the darker side of beer as well.

For DRK 2019, we're putting together a better-than-ever list of delectable dark beers from Stone along with amazing guest beers from some of our favorite friends in the industry. Join us for an evening of celebrating the depth of these creations, so varied in style yet similar in appearance.
