Dark Lord Day 2015

I had the pleasure of attending Dark Lord Day in Munster, Indiana at 3 Floyds Brewery again this year…

The event was bigger than ever, with an estimated 12,000 people coming to try beers from around the country! The selection was amazing, as always, and 3 Floyds really stepped up their food game again this year. Here’s a look…

A local hot link sausage with Dark Lord mustard and creamy cabbage slaw…

Brisket with the first ever batch of Dark Lord BBQ sauce…

Pulled pork with buttermilk sauce and Dark Lord Hot sauce…

They really outdid themselves with homeade these beer-infused sauces…

And the pork dumplings from the Yum Dun truck were quite tasty to boot…

It was a fine day of festival food for beer lovers!!
