Industrial Strength

Minnesota’s first double IPA is back.

Abrasive takes its name from Sparky Abrasives, the original occupant of our original Brooklyn Center location. Fueled by a mountain of Citra hops, Abrasive centers aggressive notes of tropical fruit and a bracing bitterness, all offset by a remarkably smooth finish that belies its double IPA strength.

Not only is the name inspired by Surly’s ancestral home, it’s also where Abrasive is brewed. It’s done in small batches, canned, and sent to market. A hop-driven beer like this is best enjoyed fresh and this allows us to get it from the line to your glass as soon as is humanly possible.

The bandsaw blades, grinding wheels, and sanding discs have given way to tanks, tuns, and barrels. Honestly, this is way more fun.

Abrasive begins landing on shelves Monday, November 9th, and it’s available to all U.S. Surly markets.

The particulars:

Hops: Citra, Warrior

Malt: 2-Row, Golden Naked Oats

Yeast: English Ale

ABV: 9.2%

Bitterness: High

Pour: Hazy Gold
