Weekend of Darkness 2017 at Scratch Bar (QLD)

Fri 28 Jul 5:00pm to 31 Jul

Weekend of Darkness 2017 at Scratch Bar (QLD)


Five years ago, the good people at Scratch Bar decided to host a little Winter soiree that celebrated the darker side of beer. It got darker, crazier and more popular than they possibly expected and has only grown more so each year since. So, of course, they’re all set to do it all again. 

The Weekend of Darkness 2017 will be happening between July 28–30, with the Friday being a designated preview day before the mini festival proper hits over the weekend. 

You can expect any and every style of dark and darkish beer to feature at some point during a busy old weekend with kegs blowing here, there and everywhere.
