We, The People (Surly Brewing) have declared that it’s time for a golden hued pre-Prohibition Lager for The People (Surly Nation.) So raise your flag, and your glasses and #GetSurly – #Merica! is here!
Starting Today, Tuesday, May 31, our newest canned lager will begin hitting shelves and taps in Minnesota, Iowa, Chicago and Wisconsin. Light gold in color, #Merica! is an old-school pre-Prohibition American Lager that was first brewed in 2015 for the Annual D4th of July party put on by the Minneapolis-based punk band Dillinger Four.
One of the only beer styles truly born in the U.S.A., pre-Prohibition American Lagers used corn as an integral part of the flavor profile, rather than as a simple substitute for barley malt. The flaked corn used in #Merica! comes across as a subtle, fresh corn flavor, while soft hop aromatics come from Warrior and Willamette hops, which add a mild fruity, herbal character that stays in the background.
#Merica! is the perfect beer for a hot summer day, watching swooping eagles glide over the land of the free and the home of the brave.
We’re going to be introducing you to #Merica! in a bunch of liquor stores over the next couple of weeks – check out where you can declare your independence from ordinary beer…
