WET Release Party

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Get WET! Join us to kick off the release of Wet, our wet-hop IPA, at the new Icehouse bar and restaurant in South Minneapolis. There will be 12 oz. pours of Wet for $5, and $6 pints of Cynic, Furious and Bender. Icehouse has also created some cool food pairings: Bender-braised beef with dark spices, Cynic with rabbit tacos and Wet with bratwurst and black mustard. See you drinking!

Wet starts with a truckload of Simcoe hops, picked fresh in Washington and shipped to Minnesota immediately. We unloaded the hops and started brewing right away, working through the night to produce this hop-forward beer, that’s dry with subdued malt flavors.

SurlyFest Release Party!

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Join us to kick off the release of SurlyFest beer and celebrate all that goes with it.

There will be random Autumn Brew Review and SurlyFest ticket giveaways, both events are sold out. Also, anyone who purchases a SurlyFest beer will receive one free ticket to the Minnesota Stars FC vs. the Puerto Rico Islanders soccer game at the National Sports Center Stadium at 7:30 pm, following the SurlyFest Release Party. We are also going to be pouring Surly SŸX and a very special keg of Cacao Bender, in addition to Brick’s regular Surly favorites, Furious and Bender. Brick’s will also have a Surly-inspired grill-out menu.

About SurlyFest:
SurlyFest is brewed with three different types of Rye and a single variety of American Hops. Malted Rye, Flaked Rye, and Crystal Rye impart a distinctive biscuit flavor to the lush Vienna Malt body, and dry-hopping with Sterling Hops adds bright, floral hop aromas.
