RBSG visit. Well letís see... free tour and five free 8oz glasses of beer. Can you possibly complain about a place like this? The tasting room gets packed between tours with one group on its way out and one going in. The brewery is definitely nothing pretty to look at, but Omar gives a really great tour that focuses more on his (and Surlyís) story instead of on how the beer is made.

First stop on a craft beer tour of MSP a few weeks back...and a great place to start. Had a guest craft beer speaker at my homebrew club in NJ let us taste some of their beer 3 days before arriving (Darkness). What a coincidence given my upcoming travels here. Listen...Iíve read a number of reviews that score this place relatively low...for lack of ambiance or value or whatever...hereís my take...the beers are "great" and that trumps anything else in my book. That what we all come for isnít it? Also...this is a brewery...if you want ambiance you can drink many of these same beers at a place like the The Happy Gnome...which is fine. I just donít think you should lower a great breweryís score becuase they didnít spend a lot of time and expense on the tasting room. Add to the great beers the fact that the staff here are very personable and helpful, the artwork and logos imaginative, and the recipes original...and I would highly recommend Surly as a must stop on any craft beer tour through these parts.

Stopped on a Wednesday night, 3 picnic tables outside and a 4 person round table, a food truck blocks the entrance. inside is a cold and uninviting space, with 8 taps and a cooler bar type area. Beers are clearly labeled and marked with prices, tap pricing is fair but canned pricing is outrageous, coffee bender for 6.50 a can?!?? Small amounts of parking out front and on the street, wasnt a problem for me. Lots of staff milling about eager to help and of course the attached gift shop. Cool spot to chill and slam beer sin the parking lot.

Awesome little taproom! About 10 of their beers on tap plus one cask. All the beers are incredible of course. Also have rotating food trucks when the taproom is open. Tonight is Asian Invasion. Looks good!

I enjoyed every single beer I sampled on my visit to Surlyís taproom, including a cask of Tea Bagged Furious. They have a large gift shop stacked with various merch. Glad I got to make it here as it wasnít open last time I visited MN.

A pretty awesome taproom, perhaps the best Iíve been to. Out in a kind of industrial/residential area, but definitely worthy the visit. Quite a few( 8-10) on tap, TV screens, gift shop, food truck - everything you could ask for in a taproom plus world class beer.

A great joint to have some great beers. Nice lively taproom. Most of their stuff is pretty amazing so you canít go wrong coming here. Great value.

The day before Thanksgiving and the place is rockin! Small and cozy with plenty of delicious beer on tap. We happened in on a night they were serving Darkness on tap so our mood was a little brighter. Clean, high top tables. Great people. Small store. Sadly, no food.

Darkness Day, what a cluster f#(k. Stayed up all night so I wouldnt get robbed or attacked. Got plenty of Darkness but dont think I would do it again. The actual day event was nice, well planned. Need to rethink handing out the wristbands because self policing only goes so far.
