Announcing Our New Destination Brewery Project Partner, The TEGRA Group

Tuesday, August 30th, 2011

Surly Brewing is happy to announce that we’ve chosen The TEGRA Group as a real estate consulting partner to help us move forward with plans for our Destination Brewery.

Since we’re new to the whole multi-million dollar construction project thing, we chose The TEGRA Group because they’ve “been-there-done-that”—having provided leadership for several major projects in the Twin Cities, including Target Field, the headquarters of Great River Energy, and the Walker Art Center.

The TEGRA Group will help us navigate the real estate development process, starting with site selection. We’ll be considering a variety of raw land, redevelopment, and existing building locations in the coming months. The TEGRA Group will help us narrow the list of potential sites, finalize financing for the project, and select architectural, engineering, and construction companies for our $20 million Destination Brewery project.

But we haven’t forgotten the people who played such a huge part in getting us to this point—Surly Nation. We want your input as we move forward with the project. We’ll post info on our Facebook page in the near future on how to submit your ideas and suggestions.
