Get the Message

You ever go into a liquor store and find yourself entirely unable to decide what you want? You’re craving an IPA, but it’s also your personal coffee beer season. You want to try something new, but you also want a reliably perfect beer that never goes out of style. The correct answer to this dilemma is “all of the above” and you’ll find it in our final variety pack of 2020.

Mixed Messages is a nod to our home state’s almost supernatural ability to say one thing (“That’s interesting”) and mean another (“I hate this so, so much”). That said, the Mixed Messages variety pack is interesting in the good way. In addition to our Furious flagship, please enjoy:

  • Grindcore. A Beer Hall and BC Small Batch favorite makes its debut in 12 oz. cans. This espresso milk stout pairs a slightly sweet body with intense coffee flavor from UP Coffee Roasters espresso beans for a roasty, velvety punch.
  • Periscope Pale Ale. An all-new beer! Dry-hopped on Centennial hops, Periscope surfaces waves of hop flavor in a classic, easy-drinking style.
  • Fall to Pieces. Back by popular demand, this IPA debuted in January of this year and was the hit of our spring variety pack. Juicy, tropical Mosaic hops are at the forefront of this light-bodied, delicious IPA. Notes of mango, honey, and papaya entice, along with a dank hint of green fruit.

Mixed Messages is available now to all Surly markets. You won’t mind it in the best possible way.
