Boston gets Surly

Sunday, June 18th, 2006

We were lucky enough to get invited to the American Beer Festival in Boston. What better place to bring our beers to? The people of Boston can get pretty damm Surly, especially when we were there to remind them that our Twins just swept their beloved Red Sox! The good people of Boston loved our beers and we wanted to give a thanks to a number of people that really helped us out: Todd & Jason, Matt, Nate, Seth, Liz and all the folks at Harpoon and the great Beer Advocate volunteers. Great show. We hope to be back next year for all our new fans in Boston.

Oh yeah Bostonians, you said you want our beer, here you go. Our beer is now being poured at the Linwood Grill in Boston! The beer will be gone soon, but check it out soon if you want some of Surly’s beers.

One more thing, next Tour Date is June 30th. Check the Tours page for details.

The latest SURLY

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

We had another great beer festival at the City Pages Beer Festival this weekend. It was great to meet lots of fans that have been drinking our beer since the beginning. Some drinkers we have seen at 2 or 3 beer festivals already. It was also great to meet lots of folks that were surprised to find out about a new brewery in the Cities. Even better to find out that they loved our beer!

Another tour happens this coming Friday, June 9th. See the TOURS page for details.

CynicAle had a great debut at The Happy Gnome – lots of drinkers happy with the new brew. You can find CynicAle on tap at The Happy Gnome, Mackenzies Pub, Cafe Twenty-Eight, Champps – Maple Grove and The Craftsman Restaurant. More bars should be pouring the beer soon.

There is presently one keg of Coffee Bender that is being poured – Cafe Twenty-Eight in Linden Hills. They are currently pouring all of Surly’s beers.
