Big news! On Saturday, Feb 18, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune will run an
article about Surly Brewing Company. Reporter Chris Riemenschneider and a
photographer spent more than two hours at the brewery this week and we had a
great time. At least I did. Gotta love photo shoots that entail drinking
lots of great beer.
Check this: Two weeks ago, Surly was available in just two Metro locations.
As of today, 13 area bars and restaurants have Bender, Furious or both! Now,
some of these establishments have yet to tap their Surly keg, so check out
the â€œSurly Barsâ€ page and call the new additions with questions. Here are
the places that are currently pouring or will be this weekend: Acadia CafÃ©,
Blue Nile, Bryant Lake Bowl, Cafe Twenty Eight, Grumpyâ€™s â€“ Northeast, The
Happy Gnome, Mac’s Industrial, MacKenzies, McCormicks & Schmicks, The Muddy
Pig, Solera, Triple Rock Social Club, University Lounge. At this rate of
growth, weâ€™ll be in every Minnesota watering hole in three months and should
surpass Budweiser later this year. Or something like that.
Two other notes: First of all, weâ€™re not quite ready to give tours. Weâ€™re
finishing up a couple of building features mandated by the city, but then
the doors will open to our adoring public. Youâ€™ll be the first to know, we
promise. Secondly, we ainâ€™t bottling anytime soon, so stop asking. Gosh! We
just began brewing, people! Give us some time to get our beer legs.
Now that weâ€™re delivering Surly, we get to see lots of friendly faces
raising glasses. Itâ€™s so satisfying to see our hard work enjoyed by all
yâ€™all. We never get tired of hearing about how people love the beer, so keep
the feedback coming. And remember; be sure to sport your Surly swag at bars.
Weâ€™re often out and about, and if we see you representing then your next
Surly is on us!
