GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE

Because living in Minnesota rules, we give back to our community with Surly Gives A Damn (SGAD). We contribute to the fine organizations that are making the North a better place to live through charitable donations, partnerships, and volunteer events. Our volunteers are a really active, passionate bunch and man do they give a damn.

Blood Drive

June 6, 2022 - 11:00 am-6:00 pm

Minneapolis

We want your blood! So much we are running the drive for two days!

Twice a year SGAD hosts blood drives and they revolve around the holidays. Why around holidays you ask? Holidays are when blood is needed the most. With the 4th of July coming up, we want to help increase Memorial Blood Center’s blood supply leading up to the that busy holiday.

Our goal is 159 pints of blood total. So, please, sign up and come on out to the brewery to give blood. We will happily hand over an empty pint glass and a coupon for a free Surly at the beer hall (for another time) for all your efforts.

Help us kick the summer off right.

*Please note the beer hall is NOT open on Monday for an after donation treat.
