Get Surly at Pride

Want to get a little Surly in your Pride Weekend? We have an array of activities lined up all over the Twin Cities. They are listed below.

PRIDE BINGO

Kick off Twin Cities Pride Weekend with Pride Bingo in the Beer Garden on Thursday, June 21! This event is presented by Surly Gives a Damn, hosted by Barb & Maxi of The Barb & Maxi Show, and supports The Bridge for Youth. This event is free and open to the public, and the fun starts at 7 pm.

TREASURE CITY TRAFFIC AT CAFE & BAR LURCAT

Our newest IPA, a summer-geared tribute to the bumper-to-bumper traffic outside the Highway 10 kitsch landmark, makes its public bow at Bar Lurcat in Loring Park this week.

CAFE & BAR LURCAT SUMMER DISCO

Speaking of which, Surly is the exclusive beer sponsor of this event on Sunday. From noon-7 pm, dance your ass off and enjoy Furious, Cynic, Treasure City Traffic, and Rosé on draft, as well as cans of Hell, Xtra-Citra, and +1.

SKINNY JEANS PALE ALE/PRIDE DABBLER

 

Jana Shortal (KARE 11) brewed a beer with us for this year’s Pride Dabbler.  It’s a hopped-up pale ale with grapefruit. We called it Skinny Jeans in honor of the staple of Jana’s wardrobe. Naming beers should always be this easy. It will be pouring along with Rosé, Axe Man, and +1.

PRIDE TEE

Without fail, our best-selling t-shirt every summer is the Surly Pride tee. The 2018 version is now available online and in our company store. In our best TV infomercial voice, “ACT NOW!” Supplies are limited, and they’re traditionally gone within a day or two.

To summarize: Play bingo in our Beer Garden. Try our new IPA and a whole host of other Surly products at Bar Lurcat. Enjoy our collab with KARE’s Jana Shortal at Pride Dabbler. And get the Surly Pride tee to wear to these and other Pride activities. We’ll be all over the place, so join us, won’t you?

Direct Approaches

#BeerRelease

Direct Current IPA, Surly’s fall seasonal, hums with an overload of hop flavor and character. Charged with generating an IPA that will light up your cooler, our brewers chose an electric blend of Galaxy and Vic Secret hops, overwhelming the grid with a juicy, orange-grapefruit jolt. The shockingly smooth finish ignites the palate and sparks … Continued

Beer Hall Closing Indefinitely

#TheBlog

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, Surly has had to adapt, change, pivot, and change again, all in the hope of pushing the two sides of the business–the Brewery and the Beer Hall–through this unprecedented situation and the economic disaster that’s followed. The Beer Hall had to make the most significant changes … Continued

The Surly Pseudo State Fair Spectacular

#StateFair

As you might have heard, there’s no traditional State Fair this year. Yes, there’s a sold-out drive-thru version that allows you to approximate the gluttony in your Ford Focus, but the wandering bar/buffet/carnival/seed art gallery is postponed. No live butter sculpting (although you can watch a time-lapse video). No quest for free street parking. No … Continued
