A Force To Be Reckoned With
Coming from behind in a field of 2,832, Dark Force (formerly called Dark Horse) won a Bronze Medal (2007 American Dark Lager category) at the Great American Beer Festival. This very well-balanced deep copper/brown lager has a great lightly hopped character with drinkability that will make it your go-to, everyday beer. Whether you're relaxing after work or enjoying a meal, may Dark Force be with you.
Founded in 1999 by a father/son beer drinking team in a small town grain elevator, we are now in our second century of brewing award-winning beer with as much passion as you put into enjoying each pint.
Thanks & Cheers

Interesting label info:
12 FL. OZ.
What makes a great leader? First of all a perfectly balanced blend of qualities; the ability to stand out-be authoritative without overpowering. Show courage and endurance-you will lead the way and set standards. Very important; be appealing and refreshing to the people. This stereotypical portrait applies whether referring to politics, religion or maybe even this outstanding IPA.
