Surly 3 and Mild

Can you say honey?  White ash? Belgian yeast? I say Surly 3!

From the Surly Brewer’s Blog:

Ok! now that 16Grit is gone what’s next?

Surly Mild will be released Jan 19th, look for it at your local. Expect a light bodied, low alcohol brown ale with flavors of lightly sweetened biscuits,tobacco and a dry finish.

Surly Three is our anniversary beer. Try it first at Winterfest!(Feb 6). Look for it DRAFT only the week of Feb 9. Brewed with 50% Honey and 50% German Dark Munich malt, fermented with a Belgian yeast strain and aged on toasted White Ash.
Lots of honey aroma intertwined with rich caramel-cracker flavors, the Ash adds a cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla aroma and a dry finish. Smells like bourbon to me.

    Last year’s Mild release event was also the unveiling of the Surly photo contest. Thought maybe they’d do the same again…?

    Oh well, looking forward to trying Three.

    Isn’t that a braggot? Wow. I don’t think any biggish Midwestern brewery has done something like that, except for maybe Viking, if they count as “biggish.” Who knew?!

    Excellent. The only thing that would make me happier than Surly Mild season is being able to buy Surly Mild cans.

  4. Bob says:

    Surly Three sounds awesome. Mild is for sissies.. like lead singers and guitar players. J/K. It sounds awesome too. I’m excited to try both.

    I love milds. Wish more brewers would make milds. Nice session brew is always nice to have around.

  6. Stu says:

    So, Mild cans will be available? “Available at your local” is a little incomplete, in my eyes. Unless of course that’s terminology for something I’m not aware of…

    “your local” is pub speak for your local pub,in this case your local bar/pub serving draft Surly products,NO cans of Mild.


  8. Stu says:

    Ah, thanks for clearing that up! I look forward to trying both.

    Crap. Mild == drink several pints.
