Spend an evening on the dark side on this year’s Black Friday at the Grand Rapids Public Museum. The museum, in partnership with Brewery Vivant, will once again host Dark Beer, Dark Side on Friday, November 24, 2017.

Beginning at 6:30 p.m., hear a brief presentation from Brewery Vivant's Ryan Engemann on the differences between various dark beers including the highly anticipated Tart Side of the Moon. Between 7:15 and 7:45 p.m. visitors can explore more of the Museum, have further Q&A with Ryan, and grab another beer to enter the Chaffee Planetarium for the Museum's original production, Dark Side: The Light Show, set to the music of Pink Floyd.

Tickets include three beer samples, general admission to the Museum and admission to the evening's planetarium show. ​

Dark Side: The Light Show is a one-of-a-kind light show featuring music from Pink Floyd’s album “The Dark Side of the Moon.” Visitors will experience this iconic album “The Dark Side of the Moon” featuring stunning 4k visuals, brilliant LED sequences and incredibly clear 5.1 surround sound. Dark Side: The Light Show was the GRPM’s first original production since the planetarium underwent major renovations in 2013/2014.
