Hello fellow beer nerds! To celebrate the darkest night of the year, my local taproom Acre in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood is tapping some rare and amazing dark beers.

Acre is at 5308 N. Clark St., Chicago. Starts at 7:00 Hope to see you there!

Andersonville is a ways away for me, but this looks pretty cool.

For those interested, the full drink menu is:

It was great, favorite of the night was the Firestone Walker XV and my fiancé really loved the creme brûlée from Southern tier. Everything was $5 and that got you about 3/4 full of a snifter, which was fine cause all the beers were high gravity and this amount allowed us to try more. The place was packed when we got there at 6 and even more so when we left at 8 and I'm assuming remained that way all night. All and all a success!
