Welcome to Drinking Beer Outside Season, Sponsored By Heat Slayer

Minnesota’s summer is roughly Memorial Day through Labor Day. The grills fire up, the patio furniture gleams, and the Drinking Beer Outside Season officially opens.

With that in mind, please welcome Heat Slayer back to an ice-filled cooler near you.

An ideal summer crusher, Heat Slayer is a crisp and refreshing Kölsch-style ale that finds its true purpose when the humidity oppresses and the heat climbs.

(It’s called “Kölsch-style” because a true Kölsch must be brewed within 50 kilometers of ln, Germany. Minneapolis is 6887 kilometers from ln, which is 6837 kilometers outside the Range of Kölsch Acceptance, or RoKA, an acronym we just made up.)

What you need to know about it:

  • Hops: Spalt Select
  • Malt: Pilsner, Wheat, Acidulated, Carafoam
  • Yeast: German Ale
  • Pale/straw yellow in color.
  • 5.0% ABV.
  • Suggested Pairings: Lawn mowing, listening to the Power Loon, buying sunscreen that you forget to apply, watching a sunset, nodding at the neighbors, celebrating a single successful day of entertaining your restless kids, muttering at the neighbors who shoot fireworks off during non-holiday hours, filling out the can cooler from the insurance agent that sponsored your brother’s softball team in 2005.

Heat Slayer starts hitting shelves this week. It’s available to all Surly markets, all Drinking Beer Outside Season long.
