    Did I miss it, or did they not do a “Best Beer Selection at a Bar” under the “Sex, Drugs, & Rock’n’Roll” category?

  2. Bill says:

    Man, Surdyk’sget it every single year. Although I have to admit I do really enjoy their selection.

  3. ryan says:

    Al- I think they looked it over in favor of deciding which bar was the best Americanized Irish bar… 😉

  4. NotASheep says:

    Summit? Summit?

    Where were all the Surly fanboys? Getting new tats and piercings?

  5. Ben says:

    Which category would Surly have been up for troll? Hide behind an anonymous name and then try to start trouble. Go elsewhere.

  6. bthek says:

    And what’s wrong with tats and piercings milquetoast?

  7. Bill says:

    Is that the label your using, or one of the ones you decided not to?

  8. al says:

    that’s the final one, already slapped on the bottles. I’ve got a couple Omar dropped off yesterday, that I occasionally cradle in my arms and stroke lovingly.

  9. ryan says:

    Too much information…

    I saw the label design last night at Arborfest. Looks good.

  10. al says:

    Isn’t that what you would do with your baby?

  11. Pivo says:

    An ugly label for a crappy beer. At least they got that part right.

  12. Trav says:

    That was insightful.

  13. NotASheep says:

    Hey, Trav, about as insightful as all the me-too Surly brown nosing that goes on here.

  14. al says:

    as the artist, may I say you are as worthless as your children and your chilldren’s children!

    peace out,

    PS there is no Surly brown-nosing here. Anyone who thinks so has zero perspective on the craft brewing world.
