Finally – A Surly Commercial, and ABR wrap-up

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Surly Nation is at it again. These fine gentlemen put together a little commercial that you will see aired during the Superbowl. After seeing the Vikes this weekend, I don’t think they’re gonna be at the Superbowl. Any chance we can get Adrian Peterson the ball more than 12 times!
Most of the folks at the brewery sobered up by Monday morning. We had a lot of fun, we hope you did also. Sorry about those long lines, looks like we should only release specilty stuff once during the fest, or maybe all the time. I don’t know. Photos will be up soon,
