10 Surly Notes

Hello Surly Nation,

A few quick notes about what’s up.
#1 – January 16th @ The Happy Gnome – debut of Surly Mild, our sessionable
Mild Ale.
#2 – January 23rd @ Acadia Café – debut of two, our 2nd anniversary ale.
Remember Acadia Café has moved to Riverside and Cedar in Minneapolis
#3 – January 30th @ Common Roots Café – coffee bender
#4 – We have a photo competition running; winner receives a Surly Prize Pack
that includes a bottle of Darkness and a Surly Jacket! Send us your Surly
pictures. We will announce the winner at the debut of Surly Mild.
#5 – We donated 6 bottles of Darkness to EnergyCents, a local charity that
helps keep the power on; over $1400 was raised by auctioning off the bottles
on Ebay!
#6 – No tours until Spring. We are cutting out 3000 square feet of the
brewery so we can add more tanks.
#7 – Beer prices are going up. Sorry everybody, but barley and hops have
both increased over 50% since we started 2 years ago.
#8 – The Surly Second Anniversary dinner is approaching soon, check the
web-site for details because it will sell out fast. The date is February
11th, I’m not saying where, tickets are not yet for sale.
#9 – Rumors are floating around about a new canned seasonal… more on that
soon. (No, it is not Darkness)
#10 – We will have some two bottled up in 750s for sale at the brewery. No
date on that yet.

See you drinking,

    I’m curious about the Surly Mild. Words like tame, mild, boring, etc. don’t seem to apply to Surly beers. Looking forward to the debut. I’m a big fan of session beers…or maybe I’m just a fan of sitting around drinking all day…whatever…
