March 17 will be a big day for beer-drinkers in the Chicago area, and not just because of St. Patrick's Day.
Next Wednesday is also when Munster, Indiana's Three Floyds Brewery will reportedly begin offering the "golden tickets" needed to purchase bottles of Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout at the annual Dark Lord Day celebration on April 24. The tickets, which sold out quickly last year, will cost $10 each, with the proceeds going to charity. Stay tuned to Three Floyds' Twitter feed to find out exactly when tickets will be released. Hopefully it will happen before you've had too many green beers.
