We take reservations on an extremely limited, case-by-case basis for parties of 10 or more during off-peak times, such as weekday lunch. We do not do call-ahead seating. For larger parties and events please refer to our Event Spaces page.
Some time between right now and the future. World domination takes time, folks. We’re always increasing production to get our beer to as many folks as possible. That’s why we built a giant brewery in Minneapolis in addition to the original mothership in Brooklyn Center. Keep an eye on our social channels and this here website. We’ll announce all expansion news there. Will it be your hometown? Maybe!
Click Find Surly to see which bars, restaurants, and liquor stores stock our beer near you. Or just visit our brewery. We make a hell of a lot of beer here, so it makes sense that we would have some in stock.
It’s beer, so it’s almost always very vegan-friendly. We’d get in a lot of trouble if a bunch of McRibs fell in our mash tun. THE EXCEPTION: When a beer style calls for lactose (a milk stout, for example), we make very sure it’s clearly noted.
While we do not have gluten-free beers, we make two gluten-reduced beers: Pils (a pilsner) and Hopshifter (an IPA). Both more than meet the standard for the gluten-free designation (less than 20 parts per million), but since we brew with real barley, not gluten-free grains, it has to be called gluten-reduced.
We're really, really good on this front. Thank you, though.
We have reopened our original brewery to monthly tours, and you can sample beers as part of it. If you’re lucky you can take one with Surly founder Omar Ansari, who will tell you the story about the concrete saw and near-death experiences.
No, due to Minnesota law we are unable to ship beer to consumers. Take it up with the state. Also, you should probably just come here and get some!
Why not? Cans are awesome, tough guy. They're superior to glass for keeping out light and oxygen. You can take them places where bottles aren’t allowed. They’re better for the environment. Your grandpa drank beer from a can, and he was in an actual war probably. The list goes on.
No, according to Minnesota law if a brewery brews over 20,000 barrels in a year they are not allowed to sell growlers. And we brew a hell of a lot more than 20,000 barrels.
That’s against the law around here. Go to your local liquor store. They’ll be happy to help. Don’t forget to buy cups. (The preceding sentence brought to you by whoever owns Red Solo Cups, Inc.)
Call them, not us. We have no way of knowing up to the minute what’s on tap/in stock at places that carry us. Or just go there! Support a local business! Make a day out of it!
Now, the standard way is to take 23 into Hinckley then get on 35 the rest of the way. What you can do, though, is just stay on 23 all the way. There’s a lot of winding roads and small towns on the route and it’s a real pretty drive in the summer and fall, especially south of Duluth.
