The Dark Nights Return at The Union Hotel (NSW)

The Dark Nights Return at The Union Hotel (NSW)


Last year The Union Hotel set aside a weekend for an event they called The Dark Nights which saw them tap 40 different dark beers – 20 on one night and another 20 the next. It turned out to be wildly popular so, understandably, they’re holding it again. 

In fact, so happy were they with the way things went last year, they’re not promising to make it bigger and darker as there’s simply no need. Want proof? How about this for a tap lineup...
