Surly Goes to The Shop

Surly entered the Arizona market roughly six months ago. Besides being welcomed with open arms and full pints, we also made friends with The Shop Beer Co., a fantastic independent craft brewer in Tempe. And when two craft breweries become friends, they make a collaboration beer. That’s just how it works, people.

As it happens, we made *two* beers with The Shop and they’ll be hitting the Arizona market shortly. They are:

Beer #1: Sinister Side DDH IPA, 7.2% ABV. Super crushable and juicy, with notes of lime, grapefruit, stone fruit, and a hint of pear. Hensley Beverage Company, our Arizona distributor, will be sending this to the AZ market. Also available at their taproom as you read this.

Beer #2: Crystal Vortex Imperial Granola Stout, 10.6% ABV. This will be mostly available for pickup at The Shop’s Tempe location with some local distribution.

Check their website and social channels for more specifics!

We’re not ones to celebrate six-month anniversaries, but honestly, any reason to celebrate right now is a damn fine one. Thank you to Arizona for getting Surly and to The Shop for making us feel right at home. Cheers!
