Furious48 The Event: Get Your Passport

Furious48 has some winners! Congratulations to Walter from St. Paul, Christopher from Bloomington (MN), Jared from Denver, and Eleanor from Chicagoland. They and their +1s will all be partying on our dime from Friday, January 31 to Sunday, February 2.

But that’s not all. We’ve scheduled a weekend’s worth of activities and every member of Surly Nation is invited. Join us all over Minneapolis and St. Paul to celebrate Furious and embrace all the midwinter madness in an awkward Midwestern hug. Be sure to grab your Furious48 passport at the Surly Brewing Company Store starting January 11th and bring it along to each event you attend. Turn it in at our grand finale on Sunday and have a chance to win a $450 travel voucher from Sun Country as we send our winners back home.
