Surly just won two awards at the 5th Annual Festival of Wood and Barrel-aged Beer sponsored by the Illinois Craft Brewer’s Guild. They took a gold in the Strong Dark Beer category for their Bourbon One and a silver in the Strong Porter & Stout category for Darkness. Fitger’s Brewhouse followed with a bronze for their Edmund Imperial Stout.
There’s also a bit of a teaser in Surly’s latest e-mail blast regarding 750ml bottles of Darkness:
We will soon have an announcement on the sale of Darkness 750 ML bottles at the brewery.
