Surly Brewing News

Congrats to Team Surly for taking Silver at the Masters Division at the World Ultimate Championships in Prague last week! But don’t think it was all business and no play, “much Czech Pils was drunk.”

On to what’s happening for the rest of July.

Good day Surly Nation, news from the brewery.

-Hell is being packaged today! Cans will be released next week as will kegs. The release party will happen on Tuesday, July 20th at Sea Salt Eatery, 4825 Minnehaha Avenue South in Minneapolis. Sea Salt is located right by Minnehaha Falls. The Surly Draft Trailer will begin pouring at 11:00 AM. Some Surly folk will be at Sea Salt later in the evening.

Surly Beer Dinner at Be’wiched Deli on July 21st. Beers poured that night will be, cask Bitter Brewer, Cynic, Hell, Abrasive Ale and four. Call 612.767.4330 for details and to make a reservation. See you there.

-Give a Pint and Get a Pint. Surly’s 1st blood drive at the brewery, July 28 Noon – 7 pm. Click here for directions to give blood at the Memorial Blood Center’s Mobile Bloodmobile at Surly.

-On June 10th, Omar won the Ernst & Young 2010 Entrepreneur of the Year Award. I think the whole process was a ruse to get Surly into the nominators liquor store and it worked. The last 5 years has been a pretty amazing experience. To go from no one wanting our beer to where we are at now is nothing short of phenomenal. Head Brewer Todd Haug is the guy most responsible for getting us to this spot and we are lucky to have him brewing here. My wife, Becca and my parents have also been a big reason we have been able to accomplish all that we have. Who would have thought brewing beer would have led to this.

I encourage people to follow us on Facebook or Twitter. We post all the latest beer events, firkin pourings and news on those sites. We have so many firkin tappings and special beer tappings that we can no longer send out email notices for them all.

See you drinking!
