Surly Brewing Company
Surly Brewing Company is kicking off the development of its new “Destination Brewery.” Founder Omar Ansari said the 8.3-acre site will feature a 50,000 square foot building with a brewery, a beer garden, and restaurant.
Beer lovers from around the area made their way to Brooklyn Center Saturday for the sixth annual Darkness Day. The free event is put on by Surly Brewing Company to release their Russian imperial stout beer, Darkness. People from around the country camped out overnight to get their hands on the beer. Chris Bly came all the way from Indianapolis, Ind. to savor the stout. “It’s one of the best dark imperial stouts around,” Bly said. “Can’t-miss thing in the Midwest.”
Some of the best beers in the country, can be found right here in the Twin Cities. Three metro area breweries took home medals from the 2013 Great American Beer Festival.
Surly Brewing has locked down a site for its “destination brewery.” The company purchased land in the Prospect Park neighborhood near University Avenue along the Minneapolis-St. Paul border.
SurlyFest takes places Saturday, September 22 and is a culmination of a long series of company-sponsored events that attract not only locals, but people from around the country. Come on out and enjoy great live music, food, beer and the chance to hang out at the brewery and make it your home for an afternoon.
So last week we asked the viewers to pick the topic and we got suggestions for best state parks, best garden center and best museum. And you picked beer.
The battle of the beer has begun between Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Now that Gov. Mark Dayton has signed the bill allowing beer to be sold at breweries, Surly Brewing Company is on the lookout for the perfect Twin Cities spot to put its new $20 million home.
Gov. Mark Dayton has signed a bill making changes to state liquor laws that will allow Minnesota breweries to sell pints of beer on-site.
I was born and raised in Minnesota. So, I may be a little biased when it comes to my thoughts on our local beer. That being said, we have outstanding breweries that produce a wide-array of great tasting beer. From light lagers to dark stouts, we Minnesotans are gifted with great tasting brews. Believe me, when I travel far from Minnesota, one of the things I miss are the solid selections of beer that we get to choose from! That might be weird, but it is true.
