Furious 48 Sweepstakes

Furious is an IPA unlike any other. The beer that upended Minnesota’s craft beer scene, Furious has its feet firmly planted in the worlds of hop-forward West Coast beers and English-inspired ales. The result is complicated, unexpected, and a source of righteous local pride.

Minnesota winters share these traits. We embrace them. We celebrate what may look to the outside world like madness, be it an IPA that defies every single market trend or weather that actively tries to murder you in the face for six months.

You sort of have to taste and see it to believe it, which is why we’re inviting Surly Nation to join us here, in the dead of goddamn winter, for a Furious 48-hour adventure in the Twin Cities.

We’re offering four Surly fans a chance to win a 48-hour, all-expenses-paid trip for two to Minneapolis the weekend of Friday, January 31 to Sunday, February 2, 2020, which is roughly the time of year meteorologists consider the coldest part of the season. We’ll fly you in and send you back home, but not before we do all this:

  • Brew your own batch of Furious with our brew team, which you’ll be able to keep and show off to your friends. Or drink in front of them. Your call, really.
  • Go outside for as long as 10-15 minutes.
  • Visit a couple of our favorite Surly-friendly bars, maybe hit a meat raffle.
  • Choose which flannel shirt to wear that day.
  • Meals at our critically acclaimed Beer Hall/Surly Pizza Upstairs.
  • Avoid frostbite.
  • Plus some fun winter surprises for you, our visitor.

The sweepstakes will run from Oct. 14-Dec. 22, 2019. Winners will be announced on or before 12/27/19.

If you ever wanted to see what makes Surly Furious, this is the time. Good luck. Maybe bring mittens.
