CBC Week in Minneapolis

For those of you who aren’t craft beer professionals, Minneapolis is hosting the 2022 Craft Brewers Conference May 2-5 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The CBC is the largest craft brewing industry gathering in America. Anchorman references are long past their sell-by date, but it really is kind of a big deal.

For those of you who are craft beer professionals, welcome to town!

At Surly, this means we’ll be hosting our fair share of industry events and adjusting our hours, operations, and taplines accordingly.
