Surly Brewing Co. wants to support community groups and organizations. To do this, we have a sponsorship committee that reviews each sponsorship request. If you have a sponsorship request, please read the sponsorship guidelines, then fill out and submit the sponsorship request form below.


If you would like a beer or swag donation for your charitable event, please check out our Donation Requests page.

Sponsorship Requests must be placed at least 30 days prior to the date of your event. Once our committee reviews your request, we will get back to you with a decision ASAP.
