You can get a taste (or three) of Surly’s newest beer, a heavily Americanized English Bitter, aptly titled Bitter Brewer (I suppose Yorktown would have been too obscure and not very surly...) I was secretly hoping they’d call it Powermad… oh well… Uptown Old Chicago, tonight, 7-9pm.
Time for your latest shot of Surly news.
First off, our new beer, Bitter Brewer, debuts at the Uptown Old Chicago on
Wednesday, May 9th. Dollar off regular taps from 7-9 PM. The new beer is our

Also coming up this week, a beer dinner at North Coast Restaurant in
Wayzata. The event is Friday, May 11th. Dinner starts at 7:00 and the price
of $39 is a bargain for the 5 course meal.Â Check out our calendar for the
menu. Call 952.475.4960 or check out their web-site for more info,
www.northcoastwayzata.com. This will be your first chance to taste this

Memorial Day since Surly Nation demanded its return.
We have gotten a few kudos lately and wanted you all to know. Furious won
the Best In Show at Arborfest beer festival last weekend. Thanks to all that
voted for Surly!
We also got props from the City Pages, Best of the Twin Cities – they gave
us a â€œBest Take-Home Brewâ€ award. Of course, we like our beer at our home,
we like our beer at The Gnome; we like our beer on a boat, we like our beer
with a goat. We like our beer here and there, we like our beer everywhere.
Thanks guys. And finally, our own bitter brewer, Todd Haug, got a nice write
up in BeerAdvocate magazine. Pick up a copy at a local beer bar. Even
MORE BEER! You will find Surly popping up at more restaurants, bars and
liquor stores as our new tanks are up and running. You gotta like that.
See you drinking,
