The North Rises

Minnesota United second season of professional soccer is underway.  It’s only right that Rising North Pale Ale, the official beer of Minnesota United, returns for its sophomore campaign as well.

“Being able to partner with the team and MLS on this is fantastic,” says Surly Brewing owner Omar Ansari. “The fact that casual fans and the real diehards loved the beer made bringing it back a no-brainer.”

Rising North was initially just a draft beer brewed for match days at TCF Bank Stadium, Surly’s Beer Hall, and some neighborhood soccer bars. The response was overwhelmingly positive, and it was apparent that this easy-drinking pale ale was ready for the big time. Minnesota United agreed.

The return of Rising North also means the return of MNUFC’s Official Pre-Match Party. Starting three hours before every home game, the party takes over our Destination Brewery. You’ll get music from Jake Rudh’s Transmission (our music partner for all 2018 United games), eats from our Beer Hall and the Surly Food Truck, soccer games for the kids, a whole hell of a lot of Rising North, and a brass band-led march to the stadium with the rest of your United brethren. The fun starts on Saturday, March 17, before the home opener against Chicago. It snowed like a son of a gun at last year’s opener, so be ready for anything. Sources are telling us it’s also St. Patrick’s Day.

Rising North Pale Ale hits shelves and draft lines the week of March 5. Scarves up, Minnesota.
