Photos: Because it Happened! Intuition Ale Works Underdark Day 2018

February 4, 2018: They came, they saw, they conquered. 


Intuition Ale Works Underdark 2018:
Bottle of Coffee, bottle of Underdark,
and Underdark 2018 in the cup
On February 3, 2018, Intuition Ale Works unleashed its own version of the dark side, with the annual Underdark Release Day, held at the Jacksonville brewery. With bottles of the prized Imperial Stout aged in oak barrels at stake, hundreds of beer enthusiasts began lining up behind the brewery as early as 6:30am awaiting the 11am opening and chance to possess the Underdark and this year's variants: Chocolate Orange, Coffee, Sazerac. As the clock honed in on the magic hour and the front of the line began walking out with boxes of Underdark, those still in the parking lot gasped in awe. With the flavored versions available only in limited quantities, the beer geeks' anticipation grew throughout the morning. But, alas, they braved the winds as they conquered the time with their coolers and a few bottles of their own, undaunted, and entered the land of the Underdark. .... 





The party began outside, as the weekend warriors wiped out a cadre of bottles of rare and/or sought-after beers. Once inside the door, the brewery crew worked feverishly to hand over the Underdark bottles. A couple of hours later, the supply of Underdark on Coffee was down to its last box. 

The crowd found a handful of versions of Underdark on draft at the special-events brewery bar, including prior years' editions. The crew from Shipyard Dog screenprinters was on site printing commemorative shirts made to order. The tap room bar featured Underdark on tap, along with Intuition beers. BLK SHP kitchen helped to battle the munchies. 

Although this writer arrived on the scene around 10:45am, there was time for a quick video interview of the two brothers who staked their claim to the first-in-line honors. Even local dogs seemed to enjoy the anticipation-time. 

And, remember, this phenomenon won't happen again until February 2019. 

In the meantime, take a look at a few photos and videos from Underdark Day 2018: PHOTOS: BECAUSE IT HAPPENED!
