Moving Pictures is Surly’s first new beer of 2021. As we’ve discovered with social media, some claims need to be examined more closely to determine their veracity. We’re offering this guide to help you be a better Surly consumer. (We considered calling this Fake Brews but quickly thought better of it.)
TRUE: It’s a juicy IPA.
FALSE: It’s named after the Rush album.

TRUE: Expect notes of grapefruit, tangerine, mango, and papaya from Amarillo, El Dorado, Mosaic, and Lotus dry-hopping.
