What is the Festival of Dark Arts, you ask?

"The Festival of Dark Arts is a one-day multimedia carnival, dubbed a Carnival of Stout. Over 30 Stouts from all over the World will be up for the tasting, mixed throughout an Astoria city block full of dark entertainment. The Fort George Lovell Showroom will serve as our Dark Arts Gallery, complete with “Terrarium Invitational” and plenty of dark art from some top Northwest artists available for purchase. Local tattoo artists will again be taking over the brewery to bring dark art to your skin. Tarot card readers will read the lightness or darkness of your future. Iron forgers will be set up in the parking lot to hammer out your iron art. Our glass blowing neighbor will treat you to a Stout while melting your beer mug. Fire Dancers will light up the night sky. Belly Dancers will sway in the showroom to the tunes of sitar and drums. Chef Dana will have prepared some dark cuisine for the Stout-soaking. For the first time, we will open up the upstairs of the Fort George building to a stage with some of the best dark music. It’s time to get dark."
