We love Grumpy’s. Roseville, Northeast, Downtown–all of ’em. They have one of the finest bar signs in the known universe, the Surly is always cold, Tony from Northeast has a Guns ‘n Roses cover band…we could go on.
Their Downtown location is having their biennial parking lot party, Bash 17, on July 22nd. The lineup is legit legendary:
We wanted to be a part of this in any way possible — frickin’ Mudhoney, c’mon. As it happens, we are a brewery. You can probably figure out where we’re going with this.
Bash Action Cream Ale will be pouring exclusively at Grumpy’s at Bash 17. Yes, Surly is making a cream ale, the first time we’ve ever brewed one. No, you can’t get it anywhere else. Yes, it’s going to be awesome.
“The short answer for why Surly is making a cream ale is ‘Because we wanted to,'” says Head Brewer Jerrod Johnson. “After discussing with Pat and Tom from Grumpy’s, we decided a cream ale would be the perfect beer for an outdoor bash on a hot summer day. We wanted to brew something that people can drink all day and brew to a style we’ve never made before.”
See you in the parking lot.
