About the event10th Annual Dark Beer Fest
During the darkest time of the year… a celebration featuring the darkest of beers is set to take place. Flying Lion Brewing invites you to share in our love of dark beer at the 10th Annual Dark Beer Fest, taking place at the brewery Thursday, December 14th through Sunday, December 17th from 10am-midnight each day.
Our biggest and most awaited event of the year, this festival fills our taproom with beer lovers and flight boards aplenty! No tickets or reservations are required; all seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
Dark Beer Fest started at Flying Lion Brewing in 2014 and has grown from a 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. Bring your growlers too - all of these exclusive beers are available for growler fills! If you haven't been, you're missing out. The team plots and plans all year long, so mark your calendars - the only reason you should travel this December is if you're going to DBF! Here are some of this year’s highlights:
ANNUAL DARK BEER COLLABORATION! - Every year Flying Lion partners with a different local brewery to bring you a new and exciting dark beer made exclusively for this event. This year, we joined forces with the good people at Georgetown Brewing Company to bring you an exotic twist on the uncommon Black IPA! Available in cans and on draft from both breweries.
DARK CIDER?! - Our friends at Greenwood Cider are crafting up a special dark cider exclusively for this event!
10AM EARLY OPEN + DONUTS! - Now an annual tradition (because who doesn’t love donuts and dark beer), the taproom opens at 10AM each day with FREE donuts (while supplies last) for the early risers! Many of the beers are limited and may only last one day, so come early and get that special dark beer you've been waiting for!
BEER FROM OUR FRIENDS! - In the weeks leading up to Dark Beer Fest, we’ll be featuring kegs of dark beer from our friends in and around Seattle. Keep your eyes on our tap list (conveniently located at flyinglionbrewing.com) so you don’t miss a single beer!

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. The taproom is open 7 days a week and is kid and dog-friendly. Though they don’t have a kitchen, you are always welcome to bring in your own food - bring the picnic or choose from 25+ restaurants within easy walking distance!
