Season 3, Episode 6 – This week, ALL SURLY BREWING COMPANY BEERS. Well, most of them. OK, eight of them.
Surly Brewing makes great beer, hands down. The problem is, they don’t distribute very far outside of their home state of Minnesota. Granted, we have no shortage of great beer here in California, but Surly would definitely be a welcome addition.
We have a variety of their canned brews, ranging from lager, to brown ale, to IPA. Surly has their own unique style and attitude. They know their way around a brew house, for sure. They’re also fans of John’s favorite ingredient, oats. It’s used in a lot of their beers.
As the show progresses, Surly’s Russian imperial stout, Darkness, eventually comes up in the discussion. It just so happens that John has two bottles of the 2010 vintage in his beer cellar, one of which was kept refrigerated for the last few years. This is important because keeping a beer cold tends to preserve it longer and lock in flavors. Jason and Matt recently had the 2010 Darkness at a bottle share, and said the beer was past its prime. How is it holding up? Listen and find out!
