Seattle’s Flying Lion Brewing Company is hosting the 7th Annual Dark Beer Fest, on December 17th thru 20th
It’s a 2020 version of the event, so it won’t look quite the same as it has in the past, but Flying Lion Brewing is moving forward. In addition to the now-familiar protocols and restrictions, this year’s Dark Beer Fest features more beer than ever. More than 30 dark beers this year!
You can reserve your spot for this limited-capacity, socially distanced event. See details in the information provided below, from the brewery.
EMBARGOED UNTIL DEC. 4TH
Flying Lion Brewing Hosts Socially Distanced 7th Annual Dark Beer Fest
Seattle, WA – During the darkest time of year…comes a celebration with the darkest of beers. Flying Lion Brewing invites you to share in their love of dark beer at the 7th Annual Dark Beer Fest, taking place at the brewery, Thursday, December 17th through Sunday, December 20th from 10am-11pm each day.
Normally, this event fills their taproom with beer lovers and flight boards abound, but this year will look a bit different in order to uphold all Covid 19 safety measures and maintain appropriate capacity levels – they’ve also added an extra day to space out attendance.
During each day of the event, a small portion of their tables will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and another portion of tables can be reserved for 2-3 hour time sessions. Each table reservation will cost $50 per session and will secure a table for up to 5 people (all ages). Your reservation also includes (5) vouchers – each one good for one 4-beer (20oz.) tasting flight OR a full pour of anything on draft (redeemable day of reservation only).
All tables are outside under a tent, individually heated and spaced 6 ft. apart. As always, masks are required, keep your distance and be kind to each other. Reservations can be made online: https://shop.flyinglionbrewing.com/
NEW THIS YEAR! – They’ll be canning a special dark beer collaboration brewed up with friends from Counterbalance Brewing!
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! – Brownrigg Hard Cider is crafting up another dark cider exclusively for this event!

Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014 and has grown from their modest 6-beer list to a full 30+ beer, multi-day event complete with cellared favorites, special releases, and plenty of limited availability brews. We’re talking all dark beer, all weekend, with styles changing each day. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out. They plot and plan all year long so mark your calendars – they think the only reason you should travel this December is if you’re going there!
Flying Lion Brewing is a family operation in Columbia City, Seattle, conceived by four beer-loving brothers and their parents. It all started with root beer batches in the basement and dinner-table discussions about beer flavors and hop utilization. Years, beers, and many late nights later, they built the brewery they’d always dreamed of.
