“Everyone has a dark side. Even a good family has shadows. Some keep theirs buried deep in the caverns of the mind. Others keep them locked in the basement, with all their naughty secrets and toys. Sometimes they forget to lock the door. Sometimes the bad family gets out”

The Scratch Bar on Park Rd, Milton is set to continue it’s tradition of palate challenging festivities with the announcement of the return of the highly anticipated Weekend of Darkness on the 24th-26th July, 2015.
The annual winter event, now in its 3rd year, has become a highlight on QLD’s beer calendar as the state’s biggest showcase some of the finest dark beers from the best breweries across Australia and around the globe. The weekend will feature up to 30 different beers on tap, with styles ranging from hop heavy Black IPAs to menacingly malty Russian Imperial Stouts, with many limited release beers, rarities, barrel aged beasts, cask conditioned ales and a myriad of other beer-isms to excite the uninitiated through to the nerdiest of ale aficionados.
This year will see the Weekend of Darkness expand slightly, and kick-off with a Friday night warm up session, before launching into full festival format across the Saturday and Sunday.
The Scratch will be joined by local BBQ legends The Shank Bros for the whole weekend, providing a smorgasbord of smoked meats and more for punters to enjoy.
