We Are Gathered Here Today…

The post-funeral meal is an Upper Midwest constant. Mourners gather in a fluorescent-lit church basement to nibble on hotdish, drink weak coffee, talk about the weather, and go to town on the star of the show (no offense Uncle Earl you sold a lot of insurance RIP): the rich, decadent dessert bars crafted by the expert bakers of the church’s flock.

These treats inspired one of our Beer Hall’s most popular items, the Lutheran Funeral Bars, and they now inspire Tiramisu Funeral Bar, Surly’s newest BC Small Batch beer.

This dessert stout rides waves of vanilla, cocoa, and molasses for a celebratory sip that will soothe the saddest of souls. The addition of espresso-roast coffee adds some welcome roasty notes to rough up the sweetness and makes it one to truly savor. Letting it warm a little also brings those coffee, vanilla, and cocoa notes to the front. Not telling you how to live your life–drink it upside down in gravity boots for all we care–but that’s our advice.

Plus, and it’s important to note this, nobody died.

What you need to know:

  • ABV: 10.2%
  • Guest stars: Jim’s 5-Star Espresso Blend coffee, vanilla beans, cacao nibs, molasses, glucose, lactose
  • Hops: Cascade
  • Pour: Bright dark brown
  • Aromatics: Brown sugar, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, graham cracker

Beer Hall visitors: You can enjoy Salted Chocolate Funeral Bar as well. Draft only, this variation uses Demerara sugar and sea salt to deliver a balanced sweetness.

Tiramisu Funeral Bar is available to all U.S. Surly markets.

The Surly Pseudo State Fair Spectacular

#StateFair

As you might have heard, there’s no traditional State Fair this year.

No live butter sculpting (although you can watch a time-lapse video). No quest for free street parking. No … Continued
