We’ve been busy at the brewery getting things ready for our upcoming open
house. Landscaping has been completed and the bar is moving along. Mark your
calendars; this is the final update: The open house will be Friday, May 12
from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, May 13 from noon to 4. You can stop by
anytime during those hours, take a tour and, oh yeah, drink a few beers.

In addition, our newest beer, Cynic Ale, should be available! We’ll also
have a number of special beers that Todd is putting on cask. Underage
visitors are certainly welcome, but they obviously won’t be drinking. We’ll
have loads of merch for sale, so bring your pickup or station wagon to haul
away all your Surly stuff. No need for making reservations, just stop on by.
