Hidden Springs Ale Works (Tampa, Florida) has officially announced that it will hold a bottle release for Darkness in the Light Barrel-aged Imperial Stout at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 20.
Developed to harness the power found within the most dualistic of confections, Darkness in the Light is a cookies-and-cream-inspired Imperial Stout that has been aged in Bourbon barrels. Clocking in at 12% ABV, Darkness in the Light is sure to be the perfect beer pairing for any plans you may or may not have in store for 4/20.
The Darkness in the Light bottle release will take place at Hidden Springs Ale Works (1631 N. Franklin St. | Tampa, Florida) at 11 a.m. on April 20. Bottles will be $30 each and the brewery will announce the bottle limit 15 minutes before opening. Cash is preferred, but cards will be accepted.
A couple things to keep in mind if you plan to attend this bottle release:
- Parking – Remember to park in Hidden Springs’ lot directly across the street, or on the street up and down Franklin, on Henderson just west of Tampa, or on 7th Ave.
- Once you are in line, make sure that you hug the wall near the door on Henderson so that foot traffic will not be affected on the sidewalks
- Above all, please be respectful of the brewery’s neighbors
Darkness in the Light will not see distribution and will only be available in bottles on April 20 (there will be no draft availability during the bottle release). If you aspire to procure a bottle of Darkness in the Light, make sure that you are in line for the 10:45 head count on Saturday and just hope that the beer gods deem you worthy. Good luck out there. Prost!
