Move over, Masters of the Dark Arts (teleport over?), because Masters of the Dark Beers are coming to town this weekend, bringing more than a dozen rare, barrel-aged stouts (all darker than playing Ouija with Marilyn Manson) to Lompoc's Black Out Beer Fest Friday night. Then, because nothing cures a hangover quite like steaming mollusks, those same brewers'll be competing in Saturday's Chowder Challenge, where the surly mothershuckers square off against local restauranteurs.
Fifth Quadrant is an establishment of Lompoc Brewing, which means you can stop by to purchase some of Lompoc's signature brews in pint glass, 22oz bottle, mason jar and/or/definitely and in keg form. There's also a selection of tasty pub grub to soak up the suds.
