Festival of Darkness 2019: Nighty Night Release Party

October 26 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Nighty Night Release Party & Celebration of Dark Beer

Darkness is coming. And with it, one hellacious party!
Our biggest, baddest, boldest 3 Barrel-Aged 2019 batch of Nighty Night Imperial Stout makes it’s limited debut Oct. 26th. The return of our most anticipated, most limited barrel-aged beer deserves a celebration as dark and dank as it’s rich, boozy body.

Gather your ripped plaid shirts, your chainsaws, your axes, your boots, your best post-zombie-apocalypse look and join us for the Lost Forty Brewing Festival of Darkness: Nighty Night 2019 Release Party.

We’ll celebrate the shorter days ahead with the first limited release of Nighty Night 2019 alongside 20+ local and regional breweries pouring samples of their selections for our dark beer garden, Annual Zombie Lumberjack costume contest, Live Music by award-winning musicians, cash prizes for best dressed zombies, a tasty lineup of central Arkansas food trucks, zombie makeup artists, and of course… beer.

Lost Forty Brewing is thrilled to bring you the ultimate celebration of the official beginning of dark beer season. Take advantage of the Halloween season, and get those costumes ready!
