So You Tried Subscribing to the Surly Newsletter…

Yeah, about that.

We updated our website last year. One of the things we updated was the field where you enter your email address to subscribe to the newsletter.

IN THEORY: That email address gets routed to our newsletter service, and you get next week’s newsletter.

IN PRACTICE: That email address got routed to the cold, dead void of internet space. Like the Phantom Zone in Superman 2, but for Gmail.

Fortunately, we ran across that cold, dead void while assessing why people who subscribed to the newsletter weren’t receiving it. There were a couple thousand of you, all of whom are clearly some of the most patient members of Surly Nation.

You’ll receive your first actual newsletter later today. It’s a great way to keep up with breaking beer news, events at the Brewery, Festival Field, and across our footprint, what’s new in the Beer Hall, Surly Pizza Upstairs, and the Company Store, and the rich, engaging content you’ve come to expect from America’s 49th largest brewery.

If you aren’t one of the people above and would like to subscribe, do so here: https://surlybrewing.com/subscribe/

Here are the things to look out for, … Continued
