Surly Brewing – EIGHT Release Details + Expansion News
(Brooklyn Center,MN) – Surly Brewing gives details on the EIGHT release party, honoring their 8th year brewing, as well is an update on their new facility expansion.
Our actual anniversary was at the beginning of this year. But since we put the quality of the beer above everything else, we release each anniversary beer when it’s done, rather than rush something out in time for a particular date. Well, our eighth anniversary beer, EIGHT, is done. Wanna drink some?
Join us for a special event to celebrate our 8th anniversary and EIGHT beer release at the Dakota on Sunday, November 9 from 5-10pm.
The beer was brewed with Golden Promise and Aromatic malt, oats, and milk sugar fermented in stainless steel, then aged in High West Rye Whiskey barrels. The result is a golden-hued Oat Wine style ale, with notes of spicy vanilla marshmallow and aromas of honey and whiskey.
EIGHT t-shirts, sweatshirts and posters will be for sale, CASH only. The awesome EIGHT artwork was designed by our 2013 Surly featured artist Josh “Jawsh” Lemke. He’ll be there to sign merch from 7-8pm.
We’ll be pouring EIGHT, along with Todd the Axe Man, The Devil’s Work robust porter, and more. The chef feature to pair with EIGHT will be crispy pork belly and Oregon white sturgeon. There will also be music from DJ Paper Tiger, and an appearance by very special guests.
Reservations are requested if you want to sit and eat. You can book them on the Dakota’s website or call 612-332-1010.
In the meantime, we’re still working hard to get this thing finished. We’ll soon begin testing the brewhouse, and we’re finishing the walls, floors, landscaping, bar and all that other great stuff that you’ve waited so patiently for.
