Dario, Pierogi King of Prospect Park

#Beer Hall

Visitors to the Beer Hall marvel at the pierogies. Based on a dough recipe from Surly Chef de Cuisine Tom Beheba’s grandmother, they’re filled with a creamy blend of potato and gruyere cheese and dressed in horseradish crème fraiche, buerre blanc, and frisee. Sounds delicious! But you still need someone to execute the recipe. And … Continued

A Champion Emerges

#Beer Hall, #StateFair

What started out as a closely fought battle between two titans of batter-slathered wiener-dom turned into a rout, as the Pronto Pup cruised to an easy victory over the corn dog in Surly’s Corn Dog vs. Pronto Pup showdown.

Certain things are matters of settled law in Minnesota. It’s hotdish, not casserole. It’s WILLmer, not willMAR. It’s “leave the barest sliver of a cake donut in the box in the break room” not “eat the whole thing like a regular goddamn human being.” However, one thing continues to drive a wedge between us. Marriages … Continued

We invited a hell-ton of breweries to pour at our 2018 release party, and if they wanted to send some people along with their kegs, go ahead, we’d get an air mattress and some couches. One of the breweries who … Continued

Intelligent Design #4: Ca$h Me Out West

#Beer Hall, #BeerRelease, #GENERAL

Surly Brewing’s Dave McGrath wasn’t even born out west. “I was raised in Miami, Florida, then I went to Wisconsin for college.” The journalism major-turned-homebrewer-turned-professional brewer found himself working in Minot, North Dakota, during the height of the Bakken Oil Boom. The boomtown atmosphere reminded him of the mother of all booms: the California Gold … Continued

Holiday Hours

#Beer Hall

Hey, remember a couple weeks ago when it was 75 and the falling leaves and warm autumn breeze were like an embrace from an old friend? Anyway, that’s done now. It’s winter and you don’t know where you put your gloves* and everyone forgot how to drive and the weather will try to straight up … Continued
