MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Surly Brewing has hired Jorge Guzman to be the executive chef for the new full service restaurant that will be a part of the $30-million plus destination brewery the company is planning to open.

Guzman has been the executive chef at Solera in downtown Minneapolis for more than three years.

“We needed an executive chef that not only had the experience in quality dining in volume; we needed one that could remain calm in the eye of the storm. We also knew that we wanted a candidate that had a commitment to create food that will equal the quality of our amazing beer. We have found all that in Jorge,” Linda Haug, director of restaurant operations for Surly Brewing, said in a recent press release.

Guzman will move into his role at Surly Brewing in August.

According to Surly Brewing officials, the destination brewery will include a 300-person casual dining beer hall, a 175-person event center and a two-acre beer garden.

Surly Brewing’s casual dining beer hall is scheduled to open in Minneapolis in early 2015. A full service restaurant is scheduled to open soon after.
