Professional soccer is back, and Surly is thrilled to partner with the Minnesota United for the Official Pregame Party at our Destination Brewery before every home game. Grab a beer, get some food, listen to some live music, and march to the stadium with a brass band and the rest of your fellow soccer enthusiasts.
Next up are the dreaded Seattle Sounders on Saturday, August 5th. The next home game is after Labor Day. Summer’s practically over, fer chrissakes. Details below.

WHAT: MNUFC/Surly Official Pregame Party and March to TCF Bank Stadium


MARCH STARTS: 6:05 P.M. Queue up at the corner of Malcolm and 5th. Listen for the Twin Cities Stompers brass band and a very enthusiastic man with a megaphone.

WHERE: Destination Brewery, 520 Malcolm Ave SE, Minneapolis, MN 55414

MUSIC BY: BadNraD makes his triumphant return.

WILL YOU BE POURING THE SOCCER BEER AGAIN: Damn straight. You can get Rising North Pale Ale, Furious, and #MERICA! tallboys in our beer garden, and on draft (along with everything else) at our other pouring stations inside and out.

DRINK FOR A GOOD CAUSE: Surly will donate $1 from each can of Rising North sold in the beer garden to Matter. Surly Gives a Damn, our charitable/public service arm will match that dollar. So, $2. That’s cool!

WHERE CAN I GET THE SOCCER BEER AT TCF: We made you a map to print, save, and share.

No. That’s, like, illegal and stuff. We did set up a tent where you can grab a beer and eat food, though, which are the two of the three main components of tailgating.  We don’t know what to tell you about hacky-sacking. You can probably get a good hack going, but respect other people’s space.
