Get Surly at the Source: The Surly Taproom at our Brooklyn Center Brewery.

FINAL TOURS THIS WEEKEND: This will be the last weekend we give tours at Brooklyn Center.

 We’ll be serving a revolving menu of Surly regular beers, seasonal beers and special beers on tap and in cans. You’ll also be able to shop at the Taproom merch store, take part in occasional free tours of the brewery and try some great food from a variety of local food trucks. Come down, grab a beer and Get Surly at our place.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover credit cards and we ID EVERYONE. If under 21, you must be accompanied by an adult. As always, don’t be a dick or we have the right to throw you out, and always be respectful of our neighbors when you leave.

We do not sell growlers and there are no off-sales at the Taproom.
