The 2022 Surly Brand Calendar

In an era of aluminum can shortages, shuttered bars/restaurants, and supply chain madness, a brewery putting out a brand calendar for the following year feels somewhere between brave and foolhardy. In 12 months, we could be going door to door with pitchers of Darkness for all we know. So, we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the craft.

Presenting the 2022 Surly Brand Calendar:



The Tropical Supreme Variety Pack

The Supreme family of beers were our breakout hit of 2021. And now, the family is growing.

As evidenced by the name, these Supreme variations lean into tropical flavors like pineapple, coconut, passion fruit, and guava. Hitting shelves when the weather turns warm, Tropical Supreme will be available year-round.


Logic Bomb

You CAN handle the truth: An approachable pale ale can also burst with juicy hop flavor. Start making sense with Logic Bomb. Available year-round.


Controlled Chaos

Fast, hard, and aggressive, this West Coast-style IPA snarls with citrusy hop flavor and just a touch of bitterness. Don’t bring it home to mom. Available year-round.


Drips & Drops

Splashing down with hellacious haze, Drips & Drops Hazy IPA is drenched in Idaho 7, Citra, and Amarillo hops. Available year-round.


Double Bladed Axe Man

Mountains crumble. Stars fall. Rivers run backwards. The gods shudder. Fear not. Double Bladed Axe Man guides your journey with a mighty swing of Citra and Mosaic hops. Limited release.

ARRIVES: January-February

We’ve been piloting these beers in our beer hall the last few months and are stoked to share them with the rest of Surly Nation. As always, these things are subject to change, but this is our road map for the next year. We hope you’ll join us on the trip.
