Round Them Up

Our first variety pack of 2021 rounds up a motley crew of delicious beers.

Unusual Suspects lines up three all-new beers and one legendary IPA for you to pick out. A true variety pack, Unusual Suspects gives classic and new styles the Surly treatment. In addition to three fresh Furiouses, here’s what you can look forward to:

Rivet Head: Hops, yeast, malt and water—those are the simple components of great beer. How those four are joined is where the magic happens. Rivet Head fastens a heavy dose of citrusy hop flavor to a dry and slightly sweet malt backbone for a classic take on the West Coast IPA.

Get Loud!: Sometimes you want a beer to whisper. Sometimes you want it to shout. This hazy wheat IPA does the latter. Get Loud! brings the noise with a wheat ale’s fruit-forward tang and a citrus-heavy jolt of hops for a complex IPA that screams with flavor.

Razor Gang: Sharp like a straight razor and smooth as a Gaelic brogue, this Irish-style stout combines rich roasted malt flavor with a sweet cocoa-like body and dry finish.

Unusual Suspects 12-packs are available to all Surly markets beginning the week of January 4th.
