Surly Smoke Release

Apparently there’s a brewery called Surly and they make a beer called Smoke.  Heard of it?  Anywho, Smoke release at Brasa in St. Paul on 11/30 at 6 P.M.

And if you’re hungry, they’ll be running a special: BBQ style pork sandwich with crispy onions on top, served with housemade potato chips and coleslaw + a 12 oz Smoke all for just $10.

    For fans of Smoke who haven’t been blessed yet with this year’s batch, it is very nice! I’m not the biggest smoked beer fan, so I might be happier than those of you with an extreme love for the bonfire & bacon type smoked beers. Don’t get me wrong, the Smoke they were serving at Darkness Day has the smoke element, but it is covered with a nice dark malty sweetness that made it insanely drinkable and very smooth. Two thumbs up on this one. Can’t wait to get some more!

    I looooooove a good smoked beer and liked last year’s version. What sort of wood was used?

    It would be nice if this was bottled in bombers like Alaskan Smoked Porter…but then I suppose it would be another event with long lines and high prices just to have the chance to get some…

    Not sure on the wood. Oak? Birch? Surly does have the new small-scale bottling line off which came this year’s Darkness. Would be nice to see some of this beer at my local sto’!
