Go Places With Stunner. Not Literally.

The concept behind Stunner is simple: A hop bill that leans heavily on Amarillo, El Dorado, and Mosaic hops for tropical notes of mango, orange, and papaya. A hit of lactose to add some sweetness. And an overall easy-drinking profile that gives you a taste of the tropics in the comfort of your own home.

We did not know how relevant that concept would become.

With palm trees, sandy beaches, and endless blue skies limited to your fake Zoom background for the foreseeable future, Stunner gladly picks up the slack. Introduced in summer 2019, this tropical ale returns just in time for the warmer weather months, where you can enjoy it in exotic locales like:

  • Your deck.
  • Your backyard.
  • Your balcony.
  • Your porch.
  • Your basement.
  • Your couch.
  • Your chair.
  • Your kitchen table.
  • Your driveway.
  • Your other chair.
  • Your garage.
  • Your stoop.
  • Your patio.
  • Your shower.

Really, enjoy it anywhere on your property. You ever had a beer in the laundry room? No one’s going to judge you now. Fire up a load of brights and crack one open. Refreshing and citrusy, Stunner takes you places even when you can’t go anywhere.

Stunner is available to all Surly markets beginning this week in six-packs of 12-oz. cans. Look for it on your next supply run.

  • Hops: Warrior, Amarillo, El Dorado, Mosaic
